Nissan Qashqai is becoming a very popular choice when it comes to crossovers and SUVs. There are too many reasons for that. For the start, the sporty exterior design looks extremely attractive and modern. The interior provides amazing comfort and plenty of modern systems and features. Now, the second-generation 2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid is coming to the markets.
Literally, this crossover has it all. Even the efficient drivetrains. However, the only thing that was missing was an electrified variant. The things are about to change in the near future. Whatsoever, don’t expect from Qashqai to arrive as an all-electric model, no. Nissan likes to offer two different forms of hybrids, the company’s ePower system, and the regular plug-in hybrid variant.
2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid is one of the best-looking crossovers
The all-new 2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid won’t depart from the current model at all. The exterior will stay intact and that is a good thing. Qashqai is one of the best-looking crossovers on the market right now. Up front, the famous V-Motion grille is a Nissan’s signature mark. The angular headlights are looking gorgeous and are available in LED technology.
Polished fog lights are a thing now and generally, the front fascia looks attractive. At the rear end, the taillights will suffer a slight change. Moreover, the rear bumper now looks subtle. The taillights are additionally stretched over the hatch and that is basically the only exterior upgrade. To the sides, Qashqai will keep on rolling on the 19-inch wheels.
2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid interior won’t get any significant changes
Again, the 2020 Nissan Qashqai is offering one of the best interiors in the class as well. The interior is not only modern and comfortable, but also very practical and customizable. You can choose between plenty of settings and configurations. Everything from the inside looks simple and you can operate with all of the features via steering wheel buttons. The cabin room is great, especially the legroom that keeps getting better and better.
You can configure the floor panels in 16 different setups. We highly recommend the ambient lighting that will boost the premium feel even more. You can even change the color of the lighting if you want. The technology inside the cabin is astonishing and the list of the standard equipment is long. However, interior of the 2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid won’t get any significant changes.
2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid engine specs
The current Qashqai model offers a 1.6-liter engine as standard. However, things could change very fast. That means the diesel variant could end the production. Nissan said the company is working on a new platform that can accommodate hybrid technologies.
Moreover, the Japanese carmaker confirmed that there will be two different electrified drivetrains. The first one includes the company’s ePower system. This system is extremely popular in Japan and it mixes a petrol engine with an electric generator and battery pack.
On the other hand, a plug-in hybrid variant will arrive as well. This piece of technology will come from Mitsubishi, one of the leaders in hybrid technology. On top of that, Mitsu already manages to deliver CO2 emission below the new and tighter standards.
There will be no all-electric vehicle
Nissan also said that the all-electric variant will not arrive. According to them, building all-electric vehicle cost too much and it means the company needs to create everything from the start.
2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid price and release date
The Nissan Qashqai is coming to the markets in a one-year time. The base model will cost around $25,000. However, a 2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid variant is still a mystery. While this model is confirmed, we don’t know its specs or the price. However, some rumors saying that this model will be released next year.
The price for the 2020 Nissan Qashqai Hybrid will be over $30,000 for sure, but let’s wait and see the official details when the time is right.
