The Nissan Qashqai e: Testing The Hybrid Crossover That Runs On Fuel Not Electricity

There are hybrids in many ways.
Nissan tries with e-power technology: she lets the crossover qashqai drive electrically, although he does not refuel to electricity, but fuel.
How can that work?
We tried it.

As he looks: You might count the Sasha among the SUVs, Nissan chooses the more socially appropriate term crossover.
The model is currently being sold in the 3rd generation with the weird name.
While the predecessor was still a more soft-rinsed journeyman, the Sasha III successfully tries to perform a more manly and well-proportioned look.
The length of 4.43 meters has a place in the competitive environment of VW Tiguan, Škoda Karol or Kia Shortage.
And the so-called CMF CD platform does not have the Sasha specifically, Group sister Renault puts its brand-new compact SUV on it.
The name Sasha, whose spelling itself stumbles, by the way, is not a linguistic art item, however refers to the Paschal, a nomadic people from the Iranian south.
How it is established: Inexpensive hard plastic is looking for the important eye in vain, whatever in the traveler location looks high quality and cleanly processed, the Sasha embeds its guests on comfortable seats, which are not only heated, but likewise ventilated and geared up with a message function.
The now obligatory digital instrument spreads in front of the driver, the community on the right is taking a big touchscreen, in the infotainment along with TomTom, the navigation system, also Amazons Alexa.
Legitimate environment: guest location in the Sasha.
Cams send a handy 360-degree picture to the screen when navigating, and it also reveals what is going on in front of the car by pressure on the Cam button.
Otherwise, the dash provider testifies to a conservative thinking about the interior strategists, since they have actually left the Sasha all sorts of haptic buttons and rotary controls, for instance for volume, cooling along with seating and steering wheel heating.
Sometimes the direct course is just the very best.
Just how much space he has: the best places, not surprising, the 2 fronts.
A minimum of ideal and left wing get an appropriate level of flexibility of movement, the medium seating corresponds to what the cat table remains in the dining establishment.
The trunk has 455 to 1415 liter capacity to offer, which is a typical worth.
The tailgate opens electrically depending upon the devices or at an additional charge of 600 euros.
We discovered the two floorboards very useful, which cover the lower part of the loading floor, use, to be switched on or to be used in a variable manner.
What drives him: Nissan has often scolded that the Sasha Gang is readily available as a plug-in hybrid in contrast to numerous rivals.
Now, however, the part-time existing no longer receives government funding, which likewise has the criticism of the plugs.
And it draws attention to other cost savings technologies: E-Power is called a hybrid system that Nissan has been running in Japan since 2017 and has now also brought to Europe.
The technology makes it possible to drive electrically, but just to fill up with fuel.
How it works?
About a detour: The most important component is a 1.5-l trial cylinder with 116 kW/158 hp, a 140 kW/190 hp electrical motor, a small drive battery with 2.1 kWh and an inverter.
The combustion engine just stays generator and operates the on-board power generation.
Depending upon the driving situation, the existing flows via the inverter to the buffer battery, the electrical motor or both addressees.
It is then the electric motor that ultimately drives the front wheels, so the bottom line is not wrong to mention electrical driving.
Nissan also sets up the E-Power technology in the larger SUV X-Trail, then likewise in connection with the E-Force all-wheel drive.
From Sasha there is an alternative of a simple moderate hybrid with 103 kW/140 hp.
E-power technology: The combustion engine plays a supporting function.
How he drives: On this point, the Sasha E-Power convinced us all around.
He not only chooses up whispering speed, however also stays acoustically extremely discreet in the more operation.
This actually conveys a nearly electrical and really cultivated sensation.
The speed and speed establish analogously, so there is no unappealing elastic band effect, in which the engine is currently strained prior to the pace has increased.
The motorist or the motorist or the motorist does not observe the complicated processes in the background.
The acceleration is also similarly set, linearly and quickly as with the real electrical vehicle.

There is likewise an EV button through which the three-cylinder can be actively sent out into the break.
Then no fuel is consumed at all.
Since of the low battery capability, however, this operates at a lot of over 3 kilometers and a speed of about 55 km/h.
With even cruises on a flat path, the combustion engine also takes out.
In addition, two alternatives can be used to recuperate.
One is the speed of B, the other of the additional high e-pedal mode.
Quick drivers should be stated that the Sasha E-Power on the freeway provides a maximum of 170 km/h.
From 0 to 100 km/h he rushes in 7.9 seconds.
No hit: The top speed of the Sasha E-Power is restricted to 170 km/h.
What he consumes: We were delighted.
Nissan speaks from 5.4 to 5.3 l/100 km.
This can be done, however then you have to be cautious and/or primarily inner-city streets with the corresponding recovery opportunities.
Beyond the highway instructions speed, you must anticipate a 7 before the decimal point.
On average, we accounted for 6.3 l/100 km.
What he uses: The Nissan Sasha is offered in 5 devices versions.
For the e-power variation, the offer only goes from the middle lot.
It is called Connect and places on the mementos of the lower levels of the lower levels, for instance, adaptive speed with spacer, rear cross-traffic caution, dead angle and high-beam assistant as well as traffic indication detection, two-zone automatic climate automatic and reversing camera-noch digital cockpit, 12.3-inch infotainment velvet
Navy, Around-View display with 360-degree circuit and 18-inch alloy wheels on it.
Made identifiable: Visually, the Sasha interacts the unique type of the drive.
From Tenney level, head-up display, partial self-governing driving characteristics, automated parking, seating, steering wheel and front panel heating and electrical tailgate are included.
The top model Tenney+ includes Nissan, among other things, a Bose stereo, electrically adjustable front seats with massage function and a scenic glass roofing system.
What it costs: from 41,360 euros.
Compared to the mild hybrid, this is a surcharge of at least 2400 euros.
What we think: The e-power drive offers us a fictional thumb high emoji.
It is quiet, cultivated and of smooth, plastic folding.
That stands in itself as an advantage.
Nevertheless, intake just stays truly low in the lower speed variety.
