Nissan has unveiled the 2021 Nissan Sylphy e-Power hybrid for the Chinese market, further expanding the powertrain options of China's bestselling sedan to include internal combustion, hybrid and all electric versions (previous B17 generation).

Nissan’s e-Power system utilizes a combustion engine that acts as a generator to recharge the lithium-ion battery pack when necessary.

As opposed to the common parallel-type hybrids, where the engine can both drive the wheel or charge the battery, or both simultaneously, as in the case of Toyota's series-parallel type, the e-Power's series-type hybrid offers full electric motor drive, meaning that the wheels are completely driven by the electric motor.

The engine itself is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine that is rated at 72 PS. However, the electrical motors that drive the wheels produce 136 PS and 300 Nm of torque.

Besides the new Sylphy e-Power, the Sylphy is also offered with the 134 PS / 159 Nm (HR16) 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine paired to a CVT, or the full electric (B17-generation) Sylphy Zero Emission, which borrows its powertrain from the Nissan Leaf.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
