Nissan Qashqai 1.5 VC-T e-Power in the test: electricity from petrol

The word that is heard again and again when it comes to drives that go beyond pure electromobility is “bridging technology”. Hybrids that, on the one hand, drive locally emission-free, but on the other hand don’t make long journeys a nightmare. The Qashqai e-Power is a new candidate for all those “who are not yet ready for a purely electric drive”, as Nissan describes it.

Compared to classic hybrids, the combustion engine is downgraded to a generator. The variable piston stroke also changes the compression and displacement of the three-cylinder. It charges the 2.1 kWh battery, and an electric motor releases up to 190 hp to the front axle. Compared to the mild hybrid with 158 hp, it storms to country road speed in 7.9 instead of 9.2 seconds, and with 5.3 liters it is said to be a good one liter more economical.

Absolutely no problems: The drive of the Nissan works smoothly, there is no howling engine and no jerking.

A value that the on-board computer confirmed on the rather quiet test lap. In conjunction with the 55-liter tank, Nissan promises a range of more than 1000 kilometers – we will check it.

There is a lot of driving culture in the Nissan Qashqai e-Power

The drive is already convincing with its high driving culture. No annoying switching on, no roaring of the engine, no jerking. The e-power hums along softly and continuously, switching on the combustion engine is completely decoupled from the traction and remains relatively unobtrusive. A pure electric car still sounds different. As such, he can be driven with a pedal, recuperates diligently.
