Electric Range

Available at FG Barnes Nissan

Making the switch to an electric vehicle doesn’t have to be a big step. With a range of electrification options, there’s a Nissan that is perfect for you.

We have four options available across our range, which are Mild Hybrid Power, Hybrid, e-POWER and 100% Electric Power. You can find out more about these below!

Mild Hybrid POWER

A Mild Hybrid vehicle is the easiest way to switch to electric. A petrol engine powers the wheels while an electric battery provides support during acceleration, up hills and while cruising. The only change you will notice to a fully petrol/diesel vehicle is that the improved fuel efficiency and an all-round more comfortable drive, particularly in stop-start traffic.

Stop-start technology increases efficiency when on the road by shutting the engine off when the car is coasting, or when lifting the foot off the pedal at speeds under 11mph on automatic transmission. This reduces tailpipe emissions and running costs of everyday driving.

100% Electric POWER

Powered by an electric motor and battery pack, you’ll never need to visit the petrol station again. Electric power is clean, silent and more efficient; however you do need to be able to charge the vehicle. This means that you may need to plan ahead for long journeys, and installing a charging point at your home.

100% Electric Power vehicles are cheaper to run, more environmentally friendly, and provide an instant response. Nissan have long understood the advantages of a battery-run vehicle, and the electric range offers improved driving range and performance to ensure your drive is as efficient as possible.
