The X-trail was the first car that Nissan used, to enter into the Indian automotive market in the year 2004.

The Hybrid car would also benefit from the FAME India government scheme under which the company can offer incentives to buyers of hybrid and electric vehicles. Although there are many mild-hybrid SUVs at present in the country, the X-trail would be the first car in its class to offer a full-fledged Hybrid technology when it makes the debut again in India.

There would be an electronic 4WD system present, in addition to the features like active ride height etc. The five seater car would make its way into India through a CBU route and is expected to be priced around 32 lakhs.
