Nissan Kicks off e-POWER in Thailand


Nissan has revealed the Kicks e-Power for the Thailand market, with prices starting at THB 889,000 ($27,725 or INR 21,03,686). Just like the Note e-Power, the new Kicks e-Power too is a series hybrid vehicle.

Trim Introductory prices
1.2L S THB 889,000
1.2L E THB 949,000
1.2L V THB 999,000
1.2L VL THB 1,049,000


Meaning, an EM57 electric motor drives the front wheels drawing juice from a 1.57 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. A 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine assumes the role of a generator and re-charges the aforementioned battery pack. The e-Power system (electric motor) offers a maximum output of 95 kW (129 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque.


As with many EVs and hybrids these days, the Kicks e-Power too utilizes its regenerative power for one-pedal operation. There are four driving modes on offer: Normal, S, Eco and EV.

In Normal, the car produces excellent acceleration off the line and stopping power (lifting off the acceleration pedal) that is on par with the braking of its conventional gasoline-powered counterparts. In S, the car accelerates even quicker with enhanced stopping power. In Eco, the car goes into gasoline-saving mode by regulating the battery power. EV mode uses stored battery electric power only, allowing a quiet drive experience without the petrol engine operating.

The engine is not only charging the battery but also giving electricity, through the inverter, directly to the motor. When extra acceleration is required or when climbing a steep hill, the electric motor receives power from both the battery and the engine to enhance its performance.


As we can see, the crossover has received a facelift too with a bold V-Motion grille, new fog lamp housing, updated LED headlamps, Boomerang LED turn signals, and LED rear combination lights.


Buyers can choose from 6 color options including Black Star, Storm White, Radiant Red, Gun Metallic, Brilliant Silver and Monarch Orange. The two-tone color scheme is optional and can be had with Monarch Orange, Radiant Red, Gun Metallic, and Storm White.


The refreshed interior offers a solid two-tone black and orange theme that is exclusive on the range-topping VL trim. Features inside include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, navigation, and a host of safety and driver assistance features including 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Intelligent Rear View Mirror.


Nissan is offering a warranty of up to 10 years for the battery and up to 5 years for the electric system. As for the car itself, the vehicle warranty is for 3 years or 100,000 km.

Thailand is the first country to produce Nissan’s e-Power technology after Japan and one of the first to launch it, the company said in a press release. “Thailand has been strategically selected to introduce Nissan’s technology,” said Ramesh Narasimhan of Nissan Thailand.
