The Nissan Note Aura is powered by an e-Power hybrid powertrain with a 1.2-liter 82-horsepower petrol engine, exclusively used as a generator to recharge batteries on the go. The traction unit is an electric motor that develops 136 hp. and 300 Nm of torque. The model also has an all-wheel drive version with an additional 68-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle.
How exactly the compact hatchback will be finalized in Nismo has not yet been reported. It is possible that the car will receive an aerodynamic body kit, an upgraded suspension with sporty settings and more powerful engines.
The latest novelty of Nismo is a sports version of the updated Nissan Patrol SUV. The car was equipped with an upgraded 5.6-liter V8 engine developing 428 hp. and 560 Nm of torque, and a seven-speed automatic transmission. A large SUV is capable of gaining a “hundred” in 6.1 seconds, and its maximum speed is 210 km per hour.
