Nissan has officially pulled the wraps off the X-Trail Hybrid in Japan as the model in question will be offered for sale on the 13th of May.
The brand new Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is the newest addition to the range and this has been introduced in Japan recently. The model in question is looking identical to the regular variant but it has received the vertical LED fog lights, the “pure drive hybrid” badges and two instrument gauges in the central display, showing the typical info. Standard items found on it include the regenerative braking system, the low-rolling resistance tires, the Forward Emergency Braking system and so on.
The new Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is taking its power from a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, which is capable of producing 147 HP (108 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 207 Nm (153 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,400 rpm. This is being backed up by an electric motor, which is generating 41 HP (30 kW) and 160 m (118 lb-ft) of torque.
The average fuel consumption in the “green” version of the popular Nissan X-Trail stands at 4.8 liters / 100 km (48.4 mpg US). The model will become available for order in Japan on the 13th of May and it is unknown at this time whether the carmaker has any plans of introducing it outside its home market. Prices for it will begin from 2,804,760 JPY, or the equivalent of 23,400 USD, for the 2WD version, while the 4WD in Black Xtreamer-X guise will be setting you back for 3,240,000 JPY, or 27,000 USD.
