Nissan launches all-new Note in Japan: Nissan Motors today launched the all-new “Nissan Note” compact car in Japan. Sales planned to begin on Dec. 23. The new Nissan Note will come exclusively with Nissan’s e-POWER electrified powertrain. As the Nissan company’s best-selling model in its home market, the Nissan Note car continues to play a key role in the Nissan NEXT global business transformation plan.
Once you experience e-POWER, you will instantly discover why it has been well received by customers. It offers linear and exhilarating acceleration that is unique to 100% electric motor drive but without the restraint of battery charge. This is the power of e-POWER.”
Earlier this year, Nissan launched the Kicks e-POWER in Japan, Thailand, and Indonesia. So far, customers have bought about 430,000 vehicles equipped with the innovative powertrain.
A design that breaks with compact car norms
The all-new Nissan Note showcases Nissan’s latest design concept, Timeless Japanese Futurism. The simple, yet powerfully modern and distinctive Japanese approach sets the Nissan Note apart from other compact cars.
Nissan Motor’s signature V-motion grille crowns the exterior, creating a strong V-line under the slim-line headlamps. Character lines spread from the front, carving the side profile and transitioning through the slim, horizontally continuous rear combination lamps. The overall impression is one of advanced, high-level, simple, and dynamic design for the electrified age.
The front grille pattern draws from traditional Japanese form, conveying an artisan touch. Bookending the grille are sleek headlights featuring four in-line LED projector lights1, keeping the front sharp and sporty. Sixteen-inch aluminum wheels, with an inner design reminiscent of a sword blade, complete the all-new Nissan Note’s agile look.
The model comes with 13 available body-color variations, including two two-tone options and an eye-catching Vivid Blue. Also available is the new color Opera Mauve, specially created for the Note.
Comfortable, spacious interior with a tech touch
The new Nissan Note defies preconceptions about compact car interiors by minimizing the footprint of components while increasing comfort and technology. The center console is placed for easy access to the downsized electronic shift lever and opens space below it.
Zero Gravity seats and broad armrests offer enhanced comfort on long-distance trips. In the rear, space far exceeds segment norms, with plenty of headroom and legroom as well as reclining seatbacks. The rear hatch has a large opening to a spacious trunk, making loading and unloading an easier experience.
Moreover, state-of-the-art technology ensures the message is readily available at a glance. Upon entry, the driver is greeted by the large integrated display interface that links vehicle information and navigation details in seamless landscape orientation. Digital gauge displays keep information clear and easy to read and understand. The center console offers wireless charging1, embracing the connected, digital age.
The all-new Nissan Note describes the nameplate’s 3rd generation. The totally new platform and design give it a fresh, advanced impression.
The new Note also emphasizes the 2nd generation of Nissan’s acclaimed e-POWER electric powertrain. So, extensively redesigned and redeveloped, the system produces more power, a higher-quality driving experience, and advanced efficiency. So, it represents a step-change in performance, with responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration, and quietness that only an electrified powertrain can deliver.
The all-new Nissan Note lineup will also feature a truly electric all-wheel-drive model, with powerful dual electric motors in the front and rear supplying power to all 4 wheels. So, the AWD (All-wheel-drive) model is scheduled for launch in December.
The 2nd-generation e-POWER system has an all-new electric motor and inverter. Electric motor torque has been increased by 10% and output by 6%, presenting powerful, thrilling acceleration from a standing start or when passing other vehicles. The e-POWER control technology has been tuned to achieve smoother acceleration and significantly enhance cabin quietness.
The new inverter is now 40% smaller and 30% lighter. The onboard gasoline engine used to produce electrical energy also more efficient, resulting in both increased power and better fuel economy. The engine now operates at a lower RPM and is engaged less often during a typical drive. Coupled with enhanced insulation in the vehicle body, this results in the quietness that’s a class above typical compact cars.
As a world first, electrical energy generation controlled according to road conditions. When road noise increases due to surface conditions and vehicle speed, the engine switches on to charge the e-POWER battery pack. This reduces the need for the engine to operate under otherwise quieter conditions.
360 degrees of advanced safety technology
However, the all-new Nissan Note car’s advanced safety technology offers 360 degrees of coverage to give drivers added assistance and peace of mind on the road. Further, drivers can enjoy Nissan Motor’s ProPILOT with Navi-link, which syncs with the navigation system on highways and detects speed limit signs to automatically adjust the set speed. The system also uses navigation data to assess the angle of upcoming bends and decelerate the car accordingly.
As a 1st for Nissan, 1,470 MPa ultra-high tensile steel adopted in the vehicle chassis, contributing to both weight reduction and improved passive safety performance.
