Nissan Pathfinder SUV hybrid power starts from $42,990

NISSAN will lure buyers into the hybrid SUV world with a starting price of $42,990 for its new Pathfinder variant.

The 2.5-litre supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine partnered with a 15kW torque-assist electric motor will be available in both two and four-wheel drive, with three trim levels.

The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid will go on sale in September.

Official average fuel consumption is 8.4 litres/100km for the two-wheel drives and 8.5 litres/100km for all-wheel drive models.  

That is about 15% less than the V6-powered Nissan Pathfinder.

The Pathfinder Hybrid's highly efficient petrol-electric powertrain uses a dual-clutch system. The first clutch operates in conjunction with the supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine while the second clutch manages engagement of the 15kW electric motor.

Control of each clutch is determined by the driving mode, resulting in optimal use of the petrol engine and the electric motor for maximum efficiency. Drive is sent to the wheels via Nissan's X-Tronic transmission.

The Pathfinder Hybrid's electric torque assist motor functions as a power generator during braking and deceleration, recharging the on-board 144-volt Lithium-ion battery, which is located under the third row of seats at the rear of the vehicle.

Pathfinder Hybrid shares the same rear occupant space and cargo capacity as its V6 stablemate.

Towing capacity is 1650kg (braked trailer), which is about 1000kg less than the V6.
