2023 Nissan X-Trail e-Power launches in Singapore, should it come to PH, too?

MANILA: The Nissan X-Trail e-Power SUV — which was unveiled at the Singapore Motorshow 2023 and has since evolved with its latest model incorporating cutting-edge innovations, potent performance, and a more opulent interior setting — is now on the market in Singapore.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How does the e-4orce system work in the 2023 Nissan X-Trail?

    The 2023 Nissan X-Trail incorporates e-4orce that combines Nissan's electric power, four-wheel drive management, and chassis-control technologies for a significant improvement in acceleration, cornering, and braking capabilities.
  • How does e-Power work in the 2023 Nissan X-Trail and Kicks e-Power?

    The second-generation e-Power system, which offers enhanced power, smoothness, and quietness, is included with the 2023 Nissan X-Trail. The gasoline engine of the system, which is the first mass-produced variable compression ratio engine in history, generates energy.
  • “As announced in Nissan Ambition 2030, Nissan aims to drive towards a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world through our products and services,” the Japanese carmaker said in a previous release. “With this in mind, we are electrifying major models, with the X-Trail for the Japan market becoming a dedicated e-Power model with e-4orce an option. The new X-Trail will play an important role in leading our electrification.”

    Even as the two crossovers feature the e-Power gasoline-electric powertrain, the X-Trail stands as a larger crossover offering alongside the 2023 Nissan Kicks e-Power.

    The platform of the 2023 Nissan X-Trail has been fully reworked to increase stiffness while reducing body weight. By isolating the cabin from engine and road noise, a high level of cabin quietness has been attained.

    The second-generation e-Power system, which offers enhanced power, smoothness, and quietness, is included with the 2023 Nissan X-Trail. The gasoline engine of the system, which is the first mass-produced variable compression ratio engine in history, generates energy.

    The X-Trail's turbo engine has been specially tuned for the e-Power system, which dramatically increases output even at low revs. While retaining a high level of fuel efficiency, the combination of e-Power with the turbo engine offers a dynamic driving experience and unmatched silence.

    By allowing deceleration when the accelerator pedal is released, the e-Pedal Step reduces the need to use the brakes. The feature offers greater peace of mind and more comfortable driving on city streets, slick surfaces, and incline roads.

    Meanwhile, the 2023 Nissan X-Trail incorporates e-4orce that combines Nissan's electric power, four-wheel drive management, and chassis-control technologies for a significant improvement in acceleration, cornering, and braking capabilities.

    On a range of road surfaces, e-4orce improves driving performance and confidence while giving all passengers an extraordinarily comfortable in-car experience.

    To increase tire frictional force, e-4orce precisely regulates the driving force and braking of the front and rear twin electric motors by analyzing the road surface and the condition of the vehicle in real-time. This guarantees easy cornering and increases driving assurance.

    E-4orce reduces tire slippage and permits smooth starting and driving even in slick circumstances by always ensuring maximum traction.

    The front and rear motors control regenerative balance during acceleration to steady the movement of the vehicle and provide a comfortable ride for the driver and passengers. The high-output motors produce forceful yet smooth acceleration that makes merging onto expressways simple. They react promptly to the application of pressure to the accelerator pedal.

    2023 Nissan X-Trail e-Power Safety Features

    A multitude of safety technologies are included in the 2023 Nissan X-Trail to support driving in various scenarios.

    The Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection continuously scans the area around the vehicle with cameras, radar, and sonar, initiating safety measures as necessary.

    Rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning systems assist the driver in maintaining awareness and preventing potential collisions. When an accident is about to happen, an emergency braking system immediately engages.

    An auditory and visual warning is issued when the Intelligent Driver Alertness System notices irregular driving behavior.

    2023 Nissan X-Trail e-Power Interior

    The interior of the 2023 Nissan X-Trail has a design that exudes toughness and superior craftsmanship. A bridge-like design on the center console houses a sizable cup holder and storage area. The armrest on the console lid is also functional. To improve internal comfort, roll-down sun shades are mounted on the rear windows.

    Nissan's Tailor Fit, its premium tan Nappa leather, premium black fabric, and Cell-Cloth, a water-repellent material perfect for people who enjoy outdoor activities like skiing and boating, are the available seat materials.

    Should the Nissan X-Trail Return to the Philippines?

    The X-Trail, which made its debut in 2000, went on to become a bestselling SUV and is regarded as an iconic Nissan known for its quirky styling and comfortable ride. It is because of these qualities that made the nameplate famous in the Philippines.

    Today, considering the improvements made to the X-Trail and the proven effectiveness of the e-Power system in the Kicks, this latest iteration of the SUV could be a success here if Nissan Philippines brings it here once again.
