Mild Hybrid vehicles make the transition to electrification a smooth and easy process. This powertrain uses a petrol engine to drive the wheel while an electric battery provides support during acceleration up hills and while cruising. Mild Hybrid vehicles provided improved fuel efficiency and a more comfortable drive for you and your passengers.
With a Hybrid vehicle, you can enjoy many of the benefits of electric driving, without the need to stop and charge. The Hybrid system seamlessly switches between electric, combustions, or a combination of the two, to automatically apply the most efficient driving solution.
Nissan’s e-POWER technology combines a petrol engine that charges the battery with an electric motor that turns the wheels. Compared to a traditional petrol engine, e-POWER has significantly lower emissions and running costs, but unlike a fully electric vehicle, you don’t have to plug it in. Plus, you can still enjoy that electrified feeling as e-POWER provides instant acceleration and ultimate driving pleasure.
By switching to an Electric Vehicle you can enjoy silent acceleration, instant torque, and zero tailpipe emissions at all times. Due to being powered via an electric motor and battery pack, you’ll never need to visit the petrol station again, however you do need to charge, which may mean planning ahead for longer journeys and installing a charging point at your home.
