Nissan Australia has confirmed details for its new X-Trail e-Power hybrid, with pricing to kick off at $54,190 before on-road costs for the RAV4 Hybrid rival when it arrives early in 2023.
The hybrid X-Trail will only be offered in high-spec Ti and Ti-L trim levels, and represent a $4200 premium over the equivalent X-Trail 2.5-litre petrol. Toyota’s most expensive petrol-electric RAV4 is the Edge AWD Hybrid, which starts at $52,700 before on-roads – $2500 dearer than the Edge AWD petrol.
It also means the X-Trail e-Power starts at a similar price to the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV (from $54,590), which shares the same basic architecture but offers a 84km electric-only range and lower claimed fuel consumption.
Nissan Australia claims the X-Trail e-Power with e-4orce all-wheel drive will use 6.1 litres per 100km on the combined cycle, 1.3L/100km more than a Toyota RAV4 AWD Hybrid.
