[Test drive]Gasoline electricity is pure electricity! Nissan X-Trail e-Power

"Gasoelectric is pure electricity?" This is not a trick, but to explain the capabilities and characteristics of the "e-Power" on X-Trail; The latter is the driving experience of 100% pure electric drive, which is different from Toyota’s Hybrid or Honda e:HEV, where the engine is still responsible for driving the gasoline-electric hybrid mode, but is driven by front and rear dual electric motors , This is the biggest product charm of X-Trail e-Power.

Storage function.

Such as the rapid and direct acceleration pleasure of a pure electric car

The biggest highlight of the new X-Trail introduced this time is the e-Power power system. This oil-electric system is the same as other general Hybrid power in that e-Power is also composed of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. , but the difference is that its 1.5-liter VC-Turbo 3-cylinder variable compression ratio turbocharged engine (158hp/25.5kgm) is only used as a "generator" to charge the battery pack, and is not responsible for driving In use, the whole car is driven by the e-4ORCE four-wheel drive system composed of a 204hp/33.7kgm front axle electric motor and a 128hp/19.9kgm rear axle electric motor. The combined horsepower output is 213hp, which means that it is equal to It is an electric drive system directly equipped with a gasoline generator, so there is no need to charge the vehicle through a charging pile, so it has the title of "electric vehicle without charging". Of course, the driver can also get 100% pure electricity. The output driving experience, as well as the direct and strong acceleration and driving quietness performance comparable to that of pure electric vehicles. In addition, there will be no mileage anxiety like electric vehicles.

The e-Power oil-electric system is composed of a 1.5L VC-Turbo 3-cylinder turbocharged engine, paired with a 204hp/33.7kgm front axle electric motor and a 128hp/19.9kgm rear axle electric motor, with a combined horsepower output of 213hp.

In fact, after the road, I have to say that the output response of the entire acceleration power is indeed not far from that of a pure electric vehicle. It is quite direct, fast and powerful, and when the engine is not started, it brings tranquility comparable to that of a pure electric vehicle. speed, just like the original factory briefing notes that "realize the kinetic energy output characteristics similar to the driving quietness and instantaneous maximum power of an electric vehicle", it feels like driving an electric car. The only small difference is that, When the engine starts to charge the battery, you can still hear and feel the presence of the engine, especially when you step on the accelerator hard to accelerate, you can clearly hear the sound of the engine starting and working hard to charge the battery, but what is admirable is , The connection between the engine and the motor is handled quite delicately, without any frustration at all.

In addition, it should be noted that since the engine is only responsible for charging the battery, sometimes even at full throttle, you will only feel the output of the electric motor, which means that the engine will not continue to run as the driver steps on it. Power generation, it will determine the timing of the engine start according to the current battery level, accelerator pedal depth and even road conditions, and the driver can understand the current charging and discharging status of the vehicle and the battery level through the instrument icon. In addition, this e-Power system also has an EV pure electric mode. Pressing the switch can force the engine to stop running for a short time, and it can run completely purely electric. However, the time in pure EV driving mode is not long. The stored power will soon be consumed to 1 bar. At this time, when the power is insufficient or the accelerator is stepped on again, the EV mode will be cancelled, and the engine will start charging at the same time.

Through the meter, you can watch the current engine operation, vehicle charging and discharging status and battery power.
In the EV pure electric mode, the engine can be forced to stop for a short time to drive completely purely electric; while the e-Pedal system can reduce the speed of the vehicle by releasing the accelerator pedal.

In addition, this car is also equipped with the e-Pedal accelerator and brake integrated control system. The driver only needs to release the accelerator pedal to reduce the speed of the vehicle instead of operating the accelerator and brake pedals back and forth, which helps to reduce driving Especially when going downhill on a mountain road, you can deeply feel the convenience and ease of use of the e-Pedal pedal.

High stability of e-4ORCE electronic four-wheel drive

The handling of X-Trail e-Power is much better than originally expected. Although the MacPherson and rear multi-link suspension settings are still biased towards comfort, they also have Q elastic toughness, so it is suitable for potholes and The vibration filtering treatment of uneven roads is quite good, so that the occupants in the car have a very good ride comfort. However, the most powerful feature of this car that is of great help to the handling is the e-4ORCE electronic four-wheel drive system. This black technology system integrates the front and rear electric motors and braking systems, and dynamically adjusts at a maximum of 10,000 times per second. The motor drive force can control the four-wheel output in real time to provide the best grip and tracking, making cornering and braking more stable and comfortable, and bringing admirable dynamic response.

With the help of the e-4ORCE electronic four-wheel drive system, it can precisely control the four-wheel output power and deceleration force, so that the vehicle has excellent grip and tracking, and creates stable cornering ability.

Indeed, when running hard on the winding mountain roads of Alishan, you can clearly feel the cornering stability brought by the four-wheel drive system and the tracking performance of the rear of the car, and the steering response is quite precise and flexible. Therefore, even if the body roll is still in the corner, the vehicle can still move towards the predetermined route very stably. Although the speed of the car is deliberately increased to enter the corner, only the squeaking of the tires can be heard, but the phenomenon of pushing the head is almost negligible, and the car The tail is still walking on the track stably, so that people can confidently control the dynamic response of the entire body, enjoy the driving fun of mountain road curves, and maintain the ride comfort required by the passengers in the car. Finally, I want to emphasize again that the quietness of the X-Trail e-Power's cabin is really good. In addition to the sound insulation, the quiet acceleration like an electric car is even more important.

The entire acceleration dynamic response of the e-Power gasoline-electric system is indeed very similar to that of a pure electric vehicle. It is quite direct, fast and powerful. It can quickly increase the speed of the vehicle to more than 140km/h, which is very enjoyable.

Test drive testimonials~The product's strength is in line with its worth

Dynamic and domineering appearance, luxurious and high-quality interior comparable to high-end imported cars, top-notch full configuration, high-standard active safety technology, spacious and comfortable passenger space, and truly admirable pure electric driving experience And flexible and stable handling, etc., these are the important product features of X-Trail e-Power, and it is also the real evaluation of this car after the test drive, so the worth of 1.519 million yuan is really worth it!
