Move to a unique & exciting electrified driving experience, now unplugged - with the NEW QASHQAI e-POWER
Try it yourself - this is driving made exciting
Feel electrified driving pleasure with our new Qashqai e-POWER powertrain. No need to recharge. This unique technology is different from a traditional hybrid engine. It consists of a petrol engine that constantly recharges a more responsive battery-operated motor. You get a quieter & enhanced fuel efficient drive.
At traffic lights, junctions or when overtaking, e-POWER delivers swift, seamless acceleration that's ideal for city driving – all from a low rev range, which makes it quiet and efficient. Nissan e-POWER is a unique electrified technology which goes beyond hybrid technology. Choose from a range of Driving Modes to suit the driving situation: D (Drive) Mode, for a driving experience suitable in all condition and B (Braking) Mode, which enhances regenerative braking, boosts fuel economy and reduces brake wear in the city.
Experience a simpler way to drive, with e-Pedal step
e-Pedal Step simplifies your drive for easier, more comfortable journeys by letting you accelerate and decelerate using just one pedal. 
Benefit from efficiencies, designed for the city
With instant responsiveness, quiet drive and seamless acceleration, e-POWER provides improved fuel economy in stop-start throughout traffic and low speed driving, giving you a more comfortable, enjoyable driving experience in the city.
A mild hybrid shows enhanced SUV fuel efficiency compared to a traditional petrol engine, specifically in urban driving scenarios and reduces CO2 emissions whilst driving. The mild hybrid system features a lithium battery that stores energy recovered during braking. The recovered energy supports the vehicles electrical systems allowing the start/stop system to activate in more situations to enhance fuel efficiency & reduce overall CO2 emissions. Furthermore, aluminium has been used on the doors, bonnet & wings to reduce weight and improve performance.
Choose your fun. Qashqai’s next-generation Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) gives you a smooth connected drive, while steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters let you enjoy greater control.
Intelligent AWD with 5 Modes
Qashqai's Intelligent AWD seamlessly transfers power to give you confidence and control. On challenging surfaces, power to front and rear wheels improves grip. On smooth roads, the system sends power to the front wheels for higher efficency. And with 5 drive modes to choose from, Qashqai can help you get the most out of any situation.
To help you go farther between fill-ups, Eco Mode optimizes engine, transmission, and other driving functions so you can drive more efficiently.
Normal mode is a balance between performance and economy providing a driving experience suitable in all conditions.
Sport Mode gives livelier engine response by simulating higher rpm shift points. On Xtronic transmission the sport mode enhances handling by holding rpm during cornering for added power coming out of a turn.
Snow Mode 
Snow Mode modifies accelerator mapping, and transmission tuning for less wheel spin and more grip. The Intelligent AWD system also adapts by starting with all four wheels engaged.
Off-road Mode 
Tuned to handle dirt, sand or gravel. Off-Road Mode enhances traction and control by adjusting the throttle response, transmission, and Intelligent AWD system for optimal performance.
