Nissan Kicks e-POWER Is On The Way To Malaysia Already

How much should the Nissan Kicks e-POWER be sold for here in Malaysia?

The Nissan Kicks e-POWER was launched in Thailand back in May 2020 and comes with an electrified powertrain first introduced by Nissan in Japan, the electric vehicle (EV) is built in Thailand and would have been a direct rival to the Proton X50, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX3. Well, now it seems like we may see this competition play out here soon.

Nissan’s award-winning e-POWER technology brings a fully electric experience to petrol models, meaning that the wheels are completely driven by the electric motor. The power from a high-output battery is delivered to the compact powertrain comprising a petrol engine, power generator, inverter and a motor.

Moreover, the distinctive model is designed to meet the needs of singles, couples or young families who are looking for unique styling, roominess, cutting-edge technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features, at an affordable price.

Thailand is also the first country to produce Nissan’s e-POWER technology after Japan and was one of the first to launch it, providing a technical bridge for Thai customers towards EV adoption, which is consuming less energy, with better fuel economy, yet strong performance and acceleration.

On top of that, the Nissan Kicks e-POWER technology features an EM57 electric motor, generator and inverter that generates electricity from its 1.2 litres DOHC 12-valve three-cylinder engine. The e-POWER system offers a maximum power of 129 PS, a maximum flat-torque of 260 Nm, and a lithium-ion battery which delivers a driving experience similar to an EV.

The 1.57 kWh lithium-ion battery in the Nissan Kicks e-POWER has four modules that provide smooth acceleration, quiet rides, and increased fuel efficiency, specifically the 1.2 S base model at 889,000 baht (about RM118,329), followed by the 1.2 E model at 949,000 baht (around RM126,315), then there is the 1.2 V model at 999,000 baht (roughly RM132,970) and the rang topping 1.2 VL model at 1,049,000 baht (approximately RM139,625).

Now, of course, these prices may not be completely accurate and more likely than not, the prices will be higher due to taxes here. What is likely to carry over from Thailand is the battery warranty for up to 10 years and warranty for the electric system for up to five years. Also, the Nissan Kicks e-POWER vehicle warranty is 3 years, or 100,000 kilometres, whichever comes first.
