To launch in the first week of November in Japan.
Livedoor Japan blog reports that the 2017 Nissan Note Hybrid variant is capable of a fuel efficiency of 37 km/L. The car is reported to launch in the first week of November in Japan.
Prices are expected to range between JPY 1.79 million to JPY 2.44 million. The hybrid variant will be sold in four grades: e-Power S, e-Power X, e-Power Medalist and e-Power Nismo. All variants will feature an electric drivetrain, where electric motors drive the front wheels, while the IC petrol engine serves as a range-extender and charges the battery via a generator.
More than a fortnight ago, images of the 2017 Nissan Note (facelift) from its promotional material leaked online, revealing the changes in tow. It features updated headlamps, Nissan's V-motion grille, reshaped lower grille and restyled bumper with bigger fog lamps. Although the rear-end hasn't been revealed yet, it may feature new tail lights and reformed bumper.
So far, the facelifted Nissan Note is confirmed to launch in Japan. For the European markets however, the Note will be withdrawn next year, to give the new Nissan Micra a free hand over the B-segment.
