Nissan's new X-Trail SUV made its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show and is set to make its debut in the European market next year.
Like the Qashqai, it will be based upon the Alliance CMF-C platform, the architecture which was designed to accommodate the brand's e-POWER powertrain. It is a 100% electric motor-driven system that removes the need for external charging thanks to an onboard petrol engine that charges the battery pack when necessary.
It is a powertrain innovation for customers who are not ready to embrace a full electric vehicle but want to enjoy the advantages of an electrified powertrain.
The current model features the latest onboard technologies as well as a folding third row of seats where comfortability is concerned.

From the introduction of the second-generation Juke in November 2019, full-electric Ariya crossover in July 2020 and the Qashqai in February 2021, the new X-Trail is the Japanese brand's electrified future under the banner of NEXT, Nissan's business transformation plan.
"The renewal of Nissan's line-up continues at pace. The new X-Trail will remain true to its well-established SUV formula, which has proved so successful for Nissan since its first introduction in 2001. It will offer more efficiency, refinement, versatility and user-friendly technology. And it will complement its electrified crossover cousins in the range, giving customers an outstanding SUV with an electrified powertrain for their daily needs," said Guillaume Cartier, Chairperson, Nissan Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and Oceania (AMIEO) region.
