Ecuadorian José Román, executive director of Nissan Mexico and Nissan Latin America, explains that the advantage of e-Power technology is the price at which customers can buy the vehicles. “Conventional electric cars are normally very expensive, making them almost unaffordable for our markets.” Román adds that according to the tests carried out, the new X-Trail is suitable for cities such as Guayaquil and Quito with high traffic, but is also ideal for long journeys thanks to its autonomy of about 900 km.

At Nissan, we plan to electrify 50% of the global portfolio by 2030. The e-Power solution is perfectly adapted to the Latin American geography due to the scarcity of charging stations to charge a normal electric vehicle.
