2022 Nissan Sylphy e-Power - award-winning e-POWER technology for customers in China | Cars Blog

Nissan today introduced the e-POWER Sylphy, the first model equipped with award-winning e-POWER technology, to customers in China.

e-POWER features a 100% electric motor-driven system that provides responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration, and cabin quietness similar to EVs, while eliminating the need for external charging thanks to the electric motor. The built-in gasoline engine can charge the battery when needed. The E-POWER Sylphy is intended to meet the needs of customers who expect great mobility options from electric vehicles, providing confident and convenient driving.

“The launch of the Nissan e-POWER Sylphy in China represents the determination of Nissan to introduce cutting-edge technologies in this core market, to accelerate the company’s vision for electrified mobility and the achievement of China’s carbon neutrality goals,” said Takeshi Yamaguchi, vice president of Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd. and managing director of Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company. “e-POWER is designed to bring a whole new driving experience to customers in China in their pursuit for high-quality mobility in the era of electrification.”

The fun and comfortable-to-drive Nissan e-POWER Sylphy delivers 300 Nm of torque and a fuel economy rating of 3.9 L per 100 km*1. The model also offers five drive modes that allow for outstanding performance and excellent fuel efficiency.

First introduced in Japan on the Nissan Note in 2016, e-POWER has been well-received in the market, with cumulative sales of e-POWER models surpassing 500,000 units at the end of March. In China, the technology is expected to contribute to the sustainable development roadmap defined by the government and aligns with Nissan’s global goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle*2 of its products by 2050. As part of this effort, by the early 2030s every all-new Nissan vehicle offering in key markets will be electrified.

The e-POWER Sylphy sets the pace for Nissan’s plan to roll out six e-POWER models in China by 2025 as part of its Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society.

In 2018, Nissan’s Chinese joint venture partner Dongfeng said it plans to introduce 20 electrified (EV + e-Power) models under its 4 brands by 2022, with Nissan e-Power technology available on core models. By 2022, it estimated that 30% of DFL’s sales will be from products equipped with EV drivetrain and e-Power tech. Around that time, Nissan said it would bring out 3 new EVs and 5 new e-Power models in Japan by FY2022.

Nissan launched the new generation Sylphy at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show with a lower roofline and wider shoulders and the latest design features such as V-motion grille, new signature LED DRLs, LED projector headlamps and LED tail lamps. Inside there’s a 4.2-inch digital MID, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a hands-free text messaging assistant – Siri Eyes Free and Google Assistant voice recognition as standard. Optional equipment also includes an 8.0-inch infotainment system with NissanConnect that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Powering the Nissan Sylphy is a new 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 149 hp of maximum power and 198 Nm of peak torque. Nissan has fitted the Sylphy with several advanced driver assistance systems as standard including Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), High Beam Assist (HBA) and Rear Automatic Braking (RAB), 10 air bags, Rear Door Alert (RDA), and Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA).

Just this month, Nissan introduced the new Kicks with the e-Power system in Thailand that combines a 1.2-litre engine with an electric motor and a battery. The engine charges up the battery that powers the electric motor, which drives the wheels. Nissan already has e-Power models with the Note and Serena in Japan and Hong Kong.

The Nissan Kicks e-Power makes a maximum power of 129 PS and 260 Nm of torque and is reported to offer a fuel efficiency of 23.4 km/l. The Kicks e-Power has four driving modes – EV, Eco, S and Normal. The powertrain uses the engine only to charge the battery and the wheels are driven by the electric motor. As the engine runs at an optimal speed to charge the battery, it results in better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Expect the same system with tweaks to be applied on the new Nissan Sylphy.
