Nissan will globally launch the Qashqai, Juke, and X-Trail in electric avatars. The carmaker has decided to bring the electric versions of the SUVs in an effort to make sure that EVs account for a major share of its global sales by 2030. According to industry reports, the electric models will be sold globally alongside the e-Power trims. All three of these anticipated Nissan EVs will purportedly ride on the CMF-EV – an EV-specific platform of the Common Module Family (CMF) family developed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. This platform was first employed on the all-electric Ariya SUV and currently serves as the foundation for the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. Coming to the existing models, the Juke is underpinned by the smaller CMF-B platform, found in the Renault Clio, while the Qashqai and X-Trail use the larger CMF-CD platform.
The Nissan Ariya's 90kWh battery pack has a range of 501km. These upcoming EVs will probably have batteries with much longer ranges and faster charging periods. They won't arrive until 2028 and will not use any of Nissan's solid-state battery technologies. In the upcoming SUVs, the range and charging speeds will both be significantly increased, thanks to the new cells. Moreover, they will also have enhanced motor technology, with peak power and torque outputs of more than 239bhp and 300Nm of the single-motor Ariya. Each vehicle's range will further be increased via improved energy recovery and efficiency.

Nissan has not officially announced the debut of the Ariya EV in our market, but given the leaked photos, we expect an announcement soon. The Ariya EV comes with two different powertrains in international markets – a single-motor RWD and a twin-motor 4WD. While they have the same torque output, the two battery packs – 63kWh and 87kWh – produce 217bhp and 242bhp. Notably, the top-spec models with the 87kWh battery pack offer 306bhp and 600Nm, along with a 513km of driving range.
