Nissan to showcase latest innovations at Auto Shanghai 2021


Nissan is set to give the public a sneak peek of its latest technological innovation in the areas of performance and fuel economy in the upcoming Auto Shanghai 2021.

During the event which happens from April 21 to 28, the Japanese car maker will premiere the new and improved Nissan X-Trail crossover. Nissan has packed the all-new X-Trail with improved versatility and the capability set to enhance driving excitement. Because the premiere will happen in conjunction with the public introduction of Nissan’s e-POWER, we’re thinking it has something to do with electrification. An all-terrain electric SUV? Why not?


With many eyes focused on electric mobility and carbon neutrality, Nissan looks to electrify all of its new vehicle offerings by early 2030.

The e-Power electrified powertrain borrows from Nissan’s electrified vehicle (EV) technology perfected in the Nissan Leaf. The car company has developed a 100% electric motor-driven system that can deliver the same responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration, and quietness found in an EV, while removing the need for external charging thanks to an on-board gasoline engine that can recharge the battery when necessary.


The e-Power technology is now in its second generation boasting more power, a higher-quality driving experience, and improved efficiency, thanks to extensive redesign and redevelopment efforts from Nissan’s engineering team.

Nissan will also feature the Ariya, a vehicle the company looks to showcase at the Nissan booth throughout the event. The 100% electric crossover is positioned to open the next chapter of electrification for Nissan in the market.


Unveiled last year, Nissan claims that the Ariya can take the powerful performance and capabilities of zero-emission vehicles to a new level. Its all-electric drivetrain combines excellent power delivery, charging capabilities and range. It is said to feature multiple configurations to meet a driver’s individual needs. Included is a two-wheel-drive and an e-4orce all-wheel-drive version. The latter balances the powerful performance with all-weather capability. The Nissan Ariya will feature twin electric motors that provide a balanced, predictable ride, with sports car-level power delivered when needed. And with Nissan’s good standings in the Formula E races, the Ariya has piqued the interest of EV enthusiasts.

Dubbed as a “force of wonder,” the Ariya is the Japanese car manufacturer’s most technologically advanced car.

The Nissan Ariya looks to surpass customer expectations with its powerful performance, connected technologies, and radical design. By offering revolutionary innovations, Nissan Ariya will be the brand’s new halo car, leading its Nissan Next global transformation plan.


Along with the all-new X-Trail and the Ariya, the current-gen Leaf will also be on display in Shanghai’s National Exhibition and Convention Center at Hall 7.2.


Locally, the X-Trail is offered in two variants, 2.0 CVT 4x2 and 2.5 CVT 4x4. Both models are outfitted with an Inline four-cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
