Nissan X-Trail Hybrid spied in Chennai
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To launch in the market later this year.
The Nissan X-Trail Hybrid was spotted testing in Chennai ahead of its market launch later this year. For India, the X-Trail Hybrid will be imported via the CBU route.
Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016, the Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is based on the CMF-C platform, which hasn’t been localized in the country. The Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is available exclusively as a 5-seater and establishes a new segment of hybrid SUVs in the Indian market.
The hybrid system combines a 2.0-litre MR20DD petrol engine that produces 108 kW (147 PS/145 hp) and 207 Nm of torque and a RM31 electric motor that generates 30 kW (41 PS/40 hp) and 160 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an XTRONIC continuously variable transmission.
The Nissan X-Trail Hybrid measures 4,640 mm in length, 1,820 mm in width and 1,715 mm in height, and has a 2,705 mm long wheelbase. It re-introduces the X-Trail nameplate in India, but in a new, more fuel efficient avatar.
