2017 Nissan Note enters production in Japan
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Nissan Note hybrid to come in two variants: e-Power X and e-Power Medalist.
Nissan Motor today announced that the Nissan Note (facelift) has entered production in the company’s plant in Oppama, Japan, ahead of its marketing launch in the first week of November. A brochure leak revealed that the Note e-Power X and e-Power Medalist hybrid variants are priced at 1,959,120 yen and 2,244,240 yen, respectively.
The brochure scans (attached below) offer a better look at the changes introduced, which include revised headlamps with projector lighting, Nissan’s V-motion grille with blue accent (hybrid only), redesigned lower grille and restyled bumper with larger fog lamps. The rear-end looks largely identical to the outgoing model, save for a new cluster design in the lamps and redesigned bumper.
The top-end e-Power Medalist variant will come with a Premium White interior package that includes dual tone white and brown leather upholstery, satin ivory trim garnish on the center console and door panel, leather-wrapped steering wheel and driver’s seat armrest.
The e-Power variant features a series hybrid drivetrain, where its electric motors drive the front axle and the IC petrol engine serves as a range-extender; generating current to power the motors via a generator. Nissan claims that the Note Hybrid can average a fuel mileage of 34 km/l (Japanese driving cycle).
