Nissan X-TRAIL e-POWER available in ST-L, Ti and Ti-L grades. X-TRAIL Ti-L shown throughout.

Nissan e-POWER delivers a smooth, quiet and responsive driving experience without the need to plug in to recharge.


e-POWER uses a petrol engine to charge a battery and that alone drives an electric motor, powering the wheels. In addition to the petrol engine, e-POWER also uses regenerative braking to help keep the battery topped up.

How does it all work?

Fuelled by petrol, driven by electric

Discover a new driving experience without changing your habits. Keep using fuel but enjoy a responsive EV-like driving experience.

Recharges on the go

You don’t need to plug-in an e-POWER vehicle. The petrol engine produces energy that charges the battery when the vehicle needs it. The petrol engine produces energy that can either be directly supplied to the electric motor or to recharge the battery. The electric motor alone drives the vehicle's wheels.

Regenerative braking

Unlocked through Nissan’s e-Pedal Step¹, the regenerative braking system on e-POWER converts kinetic energy from deceleration into electrical energy, and feeds it back to the battery.

Discover the benefits of owning an e-POWER.

A more relaxing way to drive

With the flick of a switch, you can activate e-Pedal Step ᵉᵖ²: a single pedal for accelerating and braking. e-Pedal Step ᵉᵖ² removes the need to jump between two pedals in stop- start traffic, or when driving uphill. Pair this with the quiet engine and you'll feel relaxed behind the wheel.

How does e-4ORCE work?

e-4ORCE all wheel drive technology is available on Nissan X-TRAIL e-POWER ST-L, Ti and Ti-L grades.

Dual-motor power

With two electric motors — one at either end of the car — weight distribution is near perfect, helping to further stabilise the vehicle body. Both motors support regenerative braking, working in sync for a smooth ride.

Four wheels work independently

e-4ORCE all-wheel drive controls torque and braking for each wheel individually, prioritising those with the most grip to assure uphill ascents and and reduces the effects of over- and under-steer ᵉᵖ¹.

Adapts to challenging conditions

The e-4ORCE system reacts up to 10,000 times per second, constantly adapting to changing conditions and tricky terrain to help bring you confidence behind the wheel.
