NISSAN NOTE E-POWER
If India’s limited charging infrastructure seems like a bridge too far for electric vehicles, then, Nissan might just have the solution with its Note e-Power. A range-extender hybrid, this electrically driven hatchback gets its battery charged using a small 1,198cc petrol engine rather than a fixed charging socket. Nissan claims that it returns almost 40kpl and its performance is capable to a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine car. Nissan has already shipped examples of the car to study e-Power technology in the Indian setting.
Coming: Late 2018
Propulsion system: 1.2P + 70kW electric motor
