Just last month, the 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport (2021 Nissan Qashqai) was announced with e-Power system. Now, a report from bestcarweb.jp says that a Nissan Rogue e-Power (Nissan X-Trail e-Power) would follow the Nissan Rogue Sport e-Power (Nissan Qashqai e-Power).
In May, when the Note e-Power and Serena e-Power were already on sale in Japan, Nissan announced that it plans to launch four additional e-Power models in the country by FY2023. The Kicks e-Power debuted the very next month, and the next two SUVs could be Nissan Rogue Sport e-Power and Nissan Rogue e-Power.
The Note and Serena’s e-Power systems could be considered weak for compact and mid-size SUVs like the Nissan Rogue Sport and Nissan Rogue respectively. An all-new e-Power system would have to be developed for the SUVs.
The Nissan IMQ Concept from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and Chinese reports based on a supplier update have indicated that a more powerful e-Power system making use of a bigger, 1.5-liter ‘KH5T’ turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine is in the works. British reports have said that the Nissan Rogue Sport e-Power’s powertrain will deliver a maximum power of close to 190 horsepower, which means that this could be true. The Nissan Rogue Sport could get the same circa-190 horsepower e-Power system as the Nissan Rogue Sport.
