Nissan Qashqai e-Power hybrid SUV (2022 - )

There are many cars calling themselves hybrids these days but the technology varies hugely in scope, with some able to cover as much as 50 miles without using the internal combustion engine while others feature only token electrical assistance. Marketing terminology like ‘self-charging hybrid’ doesn’t help buyers’ confusion and into the fray purrs the e-Power version of the ever-popular Nissan Qashqai. How is it different? Put simply it’s powered by an electric motor so drives like an EV but uses a petrol engine to charge the battery, which could be a godsend for EV-curious drivers who don’t have off-street parking where you can plug into a home charger. Nissan’s technology is a bit different from anyone else’s but, for the sake of comparison, can be measured in cost and performance against more conventional hybrid alternatives like the Toyota RAV4 or Kia Sportage.

Our expert review

Brace yourself for some jargon but plug-in hybrids (also known as PHEVs) are popular for their tax-busting CO2 numbers, especially for company drivers looking to save on Benefit In Kind. But they’re expensive and you need a driveway and the willingness to plug in to really realise the benefits. Regular hybrid systems like those pioneered by Toyota, and featuring in Qashqai alternatives like the C-HR and RAV4, are meanwhile more convenient because you don’t have to faff about with charging them. But perhaps not always as efficient as the numbers boast.

The Qashqai e-Power tries to split the difference, with electric drive and a petrol engine acting purely as an onboard generator to top up the battery. While this works on the road the e-Power still can’t match a PHEV for tax-friendly emissions scores and the fuel consumption is on a par with regular hybrids, or that diesel you might have bought previously. Merely one VED band down from the regular versions, the e-Power nonetheless claims to bring a sense of electrified power to those who might not have the cash upfront to buy a purely battery-powered model like the Qashqai's Ariya big brother, or the facility to charge one at home.
