Australia recently confirmed the arrival of the new Nissan Qashqai, and it's bringing some exciting changes, including Nissan's e-Power technology. Until now, all locally sold Nissan Qashqai models had the trusty 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood, delivering 147 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

But for the 2024 model year, there's a twist: the top-tier Qashqai Ti can now be ordered with the innovative e-Power hybrid powertrain. If you're considering it, the Ti e-Power starts at AU$51,590, which is a $2,875 premium over the standard Qashqai Ti.

This e-Power hybrid system combines a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine generating 156 hp with a power generator, an inverter, and a 188 hp electric motor. Notably, the engine boasts advanced variable compression functionality. This technology allows real-time adjustments to the compression ratio, striking a balance between performance and fuel efficiency.

But there's more to the Qashqai Ti e-Power. It comes with a one-pedal driving mode called e-Pedal Step. With just a press of a button, you can experience regenerative braking forces of up to 0.2g. It doesn't bring the SUV to a complete stop but smoothly slows it down. If you're eager to get behind the wheel, Nissan Australia will start accepting online reservations for the Qashqai Ti e-Power on November 2, and the vehicle is expected to hit local roads in Q1 2024.
