Nissan Leaf and e-Note electric vehicles spotted uncamouflaged on test in Delhi
The second generation of Nissan Leaf e-powered electric hatchback has been spotted on test in Delhi along with the Nissan e-Note electric hatchback. The Leaf hatchback is powered by the new EM57 Motor that runs on 40 kWh battery is good enough for 150PS and 320Nm. The battery can be charged up to 80 per cent in 40 minutes with a fast charger and the Leaf as a range of 400 kms.
The Nissan e-Note electric hatchback has a bigger 62 kWh battery that offers 218PS and 340Nm. The e-Note has longer range, courtesy - the larger battery. Both the EVs sport Nissan's V-motion design philosophy.
Earlier last month, OVERDRIVE reported that Nissan announced that the new Leaf will be introduced in the Philippine and Thai markets by 2020, however, the spy shots hints that the Japanese manufacturer could bring the EVs to the Indian markets as well. The e-Power hybrids from Nissan have an electric drive train and an internal combustion engine, like any other hybrid. However, the petrol engine is used to charge the batteries which power the electric motors. This drive train eliminates the process of charging the vehicle over and over again.
