It has been roughly 2 weeks since Nissan launched the all-new 2023 Nissan X-Trail (T33) in Japan and the model is off to a good start as roughly 12,000 people have booked one.

According to BestCarWeb, demand for the T33 X-Trail has been overwhelmingly positive, so much so that it’s the fastest selling generation to-date, beating out the T32, T31, and T30 generation models.

Being a series-hybrid, the electric motor is the one that drives the wheels; the petrol engine is used to solely charge the high-voltage battery.

The big question remains: will Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) offer the all-new Nissan X-Trail in Malaysia? Historically, ETCM has been offering the X-Trail generation since the very beginning, and has been a household name here in Malaysia.

That said, if and when the T33 X-Trail lands in Malaysia, prices won’t be as cheap as before, as the T33 X-Trail carries with it a 15 percent price premium over the predecessor model.

For reference, the current T32 X-Trail is priced between RM 136,888 to RM 159,888.
