Electric Nissan Compact Crossover Shown To U.S. Dealers, Coming In 2021

There’s no denying the Leaf was a trailblazing EV when Nissan introduced it, way back in 2010. But not even the second generation of the electric compact hatchback cuts it anymore. In terms of value for money, Hyundai has the Kona Electric to offer. Customers in the market for a lot of range have Tesla, and that’s how the cookie crumbles for the time being.

Automotive News learned that Nissan won’t sit still, not when there’s so much potential to sell so many EVs in the 2020s. This is where an electric compact crossover enters the scene, a yet-unnamed model which has been presented to U.S. dealerships at a closed-circuit event.

Those who had a chat with Automotive News stated four important details, starting with the five-seat layout and 300-mile range. Zero to 60 miles per hour is doable in under five seconds, and the newcomer “has the exterior proportions of the Rogue but the interior space of the Murano.”

Expected to arrive in showrooms in the second half of 2021, we wouldn’t be surprised if Nissan were to bump up the range by then with a more energy-dense battery. Solid-state technology is out of the question, so look forward to the lithium-ion type with – fingers crossed – liquid cooling.

Even though we’re living in 2019 and the advantages of liquid cooling make up for the higher price, the Leaf soldiers on with air-based cooling in order to cut costs. Not even the 62-kWh battery received this technology, and that’s a bit worrying for those who plan to own the vehicle for a long time.

Volkswagen is on an electric offensive as well with the ID. series, who debuted with the ID.3 at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. The United States will get a crossover underpinned by the MEB vehicle architecture, called ID.4 and with a similar design language to the European hatchback.

The e-crossover “would be one of eight battery-powered models Nissan is planning globally in the next few years,” and knowing the internal problems of the Japanese automaker, the rollout will be cumbersome at best. Nissan has yet to recover from the Carlos Ghosn scandal, and Renault is building up the pressure within the alliance like there’s no tomorrow.
