The second generation Nissan Qashqai is on the way, expected to come out before the end of the year. It will have a new forced induction turbo engine instead of the base 1.6, be based on a new family platform shared with Renault and assembled in Britain.
But it seems the crossover has a few more tricks up its versatile sleeves. Speaking to Autocar, Nissan's European sales and marketing boss Guillaume Cartier said an electric version of the car could be coming, but not right from launch.

In recent months, more and more brands are launching either bespoke EVs or derivatives from their normal cars. Even Volkswagen has put an electric Golf on sale. Nissan has been at the forefront of EVE development and their Leaf is doing relatively well. They plan to expand their portfolio into existing cars, like the Qashqai.
