Nissan has big plans for its Qashqai range in 2024, with the launch of its e-Power Hybrid variant for fuel-conscious buyers.

The Qashqai range is sharper than ever thanks to a recent styling upgrade, while there’s a more generous interior and safety equipment list to boot, though buyers looking for the hybrid will have to lash out on the range-topping Ti variant.

One key problem the Nissan Qashqai faces is its fierce competitors which, in the small SUV segment, there’s no shortage of.

With that in mind, just how well does the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid stand out from its rivals and justify the price premium of stepping up to the flagship variant for its fuel-efficient engine tech? Let’s take a closer look to find out.

What Engine Powers the Nissan Qashqai e-Power Hybrid?

Nissan’s all-new hybrid engine option for the Qashqai range comes in the form of a clever arrangement that makes the e-Power feel like an electric vehicle, rather than a conventional hybrid on the road.

That’s because the e-Power Hybrid powers the wheels exclusively via an electric motor sitting at the front axle.

The electric motor produces 140kW of power and 330Nm of torque which is thrown to the wheels which will give the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid some decent acceleration off the line thanks to the instant injection of torque from the e-motor.

While there’s a 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine sitting alongside the electric motor, the 116kW of power produced is used only as an electricity generator, rather than powering the wheels, with any excess electricity stored in the compact 2.3kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

Is it Fuel Efficient?

Nissan’s introduction of the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid is solely aimed at improving its fuel economy figures which, in the standard Qashqai stand at 6.1L/100km on the combined test cycle.

The Qashqai e-Power Hybrid is rated at a more efficient 5.3L/100km on the WLTP test cycle which, makes it more fuel-efficient than the standard engine, though not by a substantial margin.

It does, however, pull the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid closer into line with cars like the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid and the Hyundai Kona Hybrid and, at the very least, adds variety to the Qashqai’s engine lineup.

Is it Practical and Spacious?

While there’s some brand-new wizardry under the bonnet, everything inside the Qashqai Ti e-Power Hybrid’s cabin remains the same spacious and impressively practical affair.

The Qashqai sits in the small SUV segment, though the platform is far bigger than your conventional body, which means interior space is excellent for the segment.

Up front, the driver and front passenger pick up a heap of headroom and a great deal of visibility that is particularly confidence-inspiring when navigating the urban jungle.

Nissan’s choice to reserve the e-Power Hybrid for the range-topping Ti variant, only, means that the cabin is incredibly well-appointed with quilted leather upholstery and a very impressive technology package.

There’s a pair of 12.3-inch displays, as well as a large head-up display and premium Bose sound system that makes it super competitive in terms of in-cabin tech, while the surround-view monitor helps massively while parking in tight quarters.

In terms of storage, the Qashqai Ti e-Power picks up the same layout as the standard Qashqai, which means there’s a storage tray sitting behind the gear lever, a pair of cup holders, added storage inside the folding armrest and a pair of large door bins on either side of the cabin.

Move to the second row and the Qashqai proves an absolute hero in the small SUV segment when it comes to space and comfort.

Headroom is fine for tall rear passengers, while there’s more than enough legroom in the rear of the Qashqai’s cabin for adults to get comfortable which is a difficult task in the world of small SUVs.

For those with children, you’ll be glad to know that the Qashqai’s doors have a huge aperture which makes loading and unloading child seats an incredibly simple task, with the ISOFIX anchors and three top tether mounts happy to accommodate even the bulkiest of child seats.

Finally, the Qashqai Ti e-Power rounds out its impressive practicality chops with a very healthy 429L of boot space which expands to 1524L with the second row folded down, making it one of the most spacious packages in the segment.

Is it Safe?

The Qashqai e-Power Hybrid, like the rest of the range, wears a five-star ANCAP safety rating after scoring the following safety results in testing.

  • Adult Occupant Protection: 91%

  • Child Occupant Protection: 93%

  • Vulnerable Road User Protection: 74%

  • Safety Assist: 97%

As standard, the Qashqai range receives forward and reverse autonomous emergency braking with junction assist, pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane-keep assist, tyre pressure monitoring, a rear-view camera with parking sensors and traffic sign recognition.

Atop that list, the range-topping Ti e-Power Hybrid receives a surround-view monitor with front parking sensors, Nissan’s ProPILOT driving assistance system and a parking assistant with side parking sensors.

This makes the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid extremely well-equipped when it comes to active safety gear atop its five-star ANCAP credentials.

Our Verdict: Is the Nissan Qashqai e-Power Hybrid Worth it?

The Nissan Qashqai e-Power Hybrid is an important addition to the range, offering material fuel efficiency benefits and a long list of features and premium touches in range-topping Ti form.

It certainly would be nice to see the fuel-efficient hybrid engine tech added to other, more affordable members of the range, though this is likely on the cards for the very near future.

Until then, the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid is a strong performer, especially when you consider how much space is on offer inside the cabin, making for a super versatile small SUV package.
