April Speak again The new Qashqai Its debut is expected soon. Specifically, the Japanese manufacturer He revealed many details about the engines The new crossover that will be completely electric. Once this model is available, customers will be able to choose, in addition to the two different engines, between a two-engine or four-wheel drive, a 6-speed manual transmission or the new CVT Xtronic. Let’s see all the news.
Petrol 1.3 DIG-T ALIS (MILD HYBRID)
Nissan will present the new Qashqai with 1.3 DGT Turbo Petrol Engine with 12 Volt Light Hybrid Technology. System was It’s called ALiS (Advanced Lithium-ion Battery System). Here’s how Nissan explains how it works:
Energy recovered during idling (regenerative braking) is stored in a lithium-ion battery and then used to improve the motor’s torque delivery (torque assist) during rapid restart. This energy is also used in flight on CVT-equipped versions, where the thermal engine is switched off at speeds below 18 km / h with the brake pedal depressed and the stored energy is used to power the vehicle’s electrical system. This allows to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. In the event of acceleration (between 20 and 110 km / h), the energy of the lithium-ion battery is used to generate an additional torque of 6 Nm for up to 20 seconds, which helps reduce the voltage required by the thermal motor, with an advantage, also in these Status, in terms of consumption and emissions.
The ALiS system is mated to a further improved 1.3DG-T turbocharged petrol engine. Nissan declares it complies with the Euro 6D standard. You can choose between two power levels: 140 hp (103 kW) and 240 Nm of torque or 158 hp (116 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (270 Nm with the CVT). The engine can be combined with an 6-speed manual transmission or the new Xtronic CVT gearbox (Only for 158 hp / 116 kW versions). Four-wheel drive version It will only be offered on models equipped with a 158 hp (116 kW) CVT transmission. Five selectable driving modes: Standard, Economy, Sport, Snow and Off-road.
The most accurate Automation e-POWER Of which We have already spoken many times, Will only come later that is During 2022. The hybrid system consists of a battery, a 157 hp (115 kW) petrol engine with a variable compression ratio, a generator, an inverter and 190 hp (140 kW) electric motor with 330 Nm of torque. The main distinguishing feature of this powertrain is that the heat engine is used exclusively to generate electricity, while the wheels are driven only by the electric motor.
Three drive modes: Standard, Sport and Eco-friendly At first, regenerative braking has been calibrated to simulate the classic “engine brakes” of heat-absorbing models. In sports mode, the performance is brighter. The third mode allows you to optimize battery management to reduce consumption. In all cases, it is possible to select a “B Mode” option that increases power recovery during idle.
With this new engine Nissan Qashqai Has an electronic pedal system Which allows you to drive with only one pedal. The crossover will be offered with this front-wheel-drive powertrain only.
