Nissan has launched the all-new Note compact car in Japan, with sales planned to begin Dec. 23rd. The new Note will come exclusively with Nissan’s e-POWER electrified powertrain.
Earlier in 2020, Nissan launched the Kicks e-POWER in Japan, Thailand and Indonesia. The company is also planning e-POWER launches in Europe and China. So far, customers have purchased about 430,000 vehicles equipped with the new powertrain.
Ashwani Gupta, Nissan’s chief operating officer, says: “In 2016, the Note e-POWER became a hot seller as soon as it started sales in Japan. With this all-new Note, we want to bring the joy of e-POWER to even more customers. Once you experience e-POWER, you will instantly discover why it has been well received by customers. It offers linear and exhilarating acceleration that is unique to 100% electric motor drive, but without the restraint of battery charge. This is the power of e-POWER.”
He adds: “By electrifying the powertrains of our vehicles, we want to promote vehicle evolution and continue to deliver driving excitement and pleasure to customers.”
The new Note’s advanced safety technology offers 360 degrees of coverage to give drivers added assistance and peace of mind on the road. Drivers can enjoy Nissan’s ProPILOT with Navi-link, which syncs with the navigation system on highways and detects speed limit signs to automatically adjust the set speed.
By the end of fiscal year 2023, Nissan expects to deliver more than 1 million electrified vehicles, including EVs and e-POWER models, to customers around the world each year.
