Η Nissan ανακοίνωσε ότι από τον Οκτώβριο το Qashqai θα φορέσει τον νέο οικονομικό 1.600αρη turbo πετρελαιοκινητήρα ο οποίος θα αντικαταστήσει τον τωρινό 2.0-λιτρο. Ο κινητήρας αποδίδει 130 άλογα με 320 Nm ροπής, 20 λιγότερα από τον 2.0-λιτρο dCi που αντικαθιστά. Η Nissan υποστηρίζει ότι με το downsizing προσφέρει στο μοντέλο μεγαλύτερη οικονομία καυσίμου, μικρότερες εκπομπές CO2 με την ροπή να παραμένει στα ίδια επίπεδα με τον κινητήρα που αντικαθιστά.

Η μέση κατανάλωση ανέρχεται στα 4.9 λίτρα/100 χλμ, (- 1 λίτρο σε σχέση με τον 2-λιτρο κινητήρα) με τις εκπομπές CO2 να ανέρχονται στα 129 γρ /χλμ (-26 γρ. από τον 2.0 dCi). Μέσα στο 2012 η Nissan θα προσφέρει και το σύστημα Start/Stop το οποίο θα μειώνει την μέση κατανάλωση τα 4.5 λίτρα/100 χλμ με τις τις εκπομπές CO2 να ανέρχονται στα 119 γρ /χλμ.

Ο κινητήρας θα είναι διαθέσιμος τόσο στο μπροστοκίνητο Qashqai+2 όσο και στο τετρακίνητο Qashqai με τις πωλήσεις να ξεκινούν από τον Οκτώβριο.

PURE DRIVING PLEASURE FROM LOW EMISSION QASHQAI

–High power and performance plus lower emissions from state-of-the-art new diesel —

Low emissions from new 1.6 dCi Pure Drive engine, backed by…

  • High levels of power and torque for excellent driving dynamics
  • Strong fuel economy
  • Available on Qashqai and Qashqai+2, manual transmission

Significant new technically advanced options including….

  • Around View Monitor, a premium feature first for a C-segment car
  • New CVT gearbox
  • Even lower CO2 figures with Stop / Start System due early 2012

ROLLE (01 September, 2011) – In line with a pledge to continually lower the emissions from its cars, Nissan has developed a new Pure Drive* version of the top selling Qashqai producing just 129g/km of CO2 with a fuel consumption of 4,9 l/100 km.

It is powered by a brand new, state-of-the-art 1.6-litre diesel engine that not only delivers strong fuel economy and low emissions but which has the same levels of torque and top speed as the 2.0-litre dCi engine it replaces.

Peak power from the new engine is 130PS which is backed by an exceptional 320Nm of torque, available from as low as 1,750rpm. And this is just the start. Early next year a version of the model will be launched with Nissan’s Stop / Start System which will help to reduce CO2 emissions still further to a remarkable 119 g/km and 4.5 l/100 km of fuel consumption.

“Nissan dominates the crossover market with its ground-breaking design and consumer-friendly technologies. With the introduction of this new diesel engine, we give our customers the best of both worlds – low emissions plus an even better driving performance.

“This is a remarkable engine, best in class in so many respects. It provides the dynamic driving performance which matches that of the outgoing 2.0-litre dCi yet produces fuel consumption and emission figures equal to or better than our existing 1.5-litre dCi unit,” said Paul Willcox, Senior Vice President, Nissan Europe.

To add to the dynamic excitement come a number of innovative new items of equipment including, for the first time on a C-segment car, Around View Monitor. More usually found on luxury cars, AVM uses a series of small cameras located on the exterior of the vehicle to make parking and manoeuvring as safe as possible by giving the driver a real-time bird’s eye view of the environment around the car. A sophisticated new CVT gearbox will also be available on 1.6-litre petrol models to bring further drivetrain options to the range.

These latest developments underline Nissan’s leadership of the booming Crossover market and keep Qashqai well ahead of its opposition.

“When Qashqai was launched in 2007 it quickly re-wrote the C-segment rule book, offering innovation and character in a previously conservative market. Its combination of SUV looks and toughness with dynamic handling, strong performance and plenty of interior space captured the imagination of the car-buying public.

“After a little more than four and a half years, we’ve built more than one million Qashqai and seven-seat Qashqai+2 models at our Sunderland factory where we have three shifts working 24 hours a day to keep up with demand. On average we build 1,200 examples every day,” said Guillaume Cartier, Vice President Sales, Nissan Europe.

“The new Pure Drive 1.6dCi Qashqai, especially with innovative options like Stop / Start System and the Around View Monitor, will cement our leadership of the Crossover segment,” he added.

* The Pure Drive designation is given to every Nissan product that emits 130g/km of CO2 or less. On its introduction the ‘cut off’ point was 140g, but as part of the Nissan Green Programme membership of this exclusive club gets tougher all the time. The programme calls for a further drop to 120g in 2013.
