The electrification of the Nissan range continues, with orders being taken on an advanced hybrid powertrain now available on the Juke compact crossover.
The new Nissan Juke Hybrid delivers the best of all worlds. This model has been designed to provide the driver with a responsive acceleration, redefined cruising and efficient low emissions, all whilst emphasising maximum use of the fully-electric mode, without any additional driver input.
The new Juke Hybrid range co-exists alongside the existing current Juke line-up, and starts with N-Connecta, followed by the Tekna and Tekna+. N-Connecta models start from £27,250 OTR, and the range extends up to the highly equipped and stylish Tekna+ at £30,150.
“Nissan’s electrified product strategy is gaining momentum and the new Juke Hybrid represents another milestone on our strategic ambition to have a fully-electrified range by 2023,” said Guillaume Cartier, Chairperson, Nissan AMIEO region.
All hybrid versions come equipped with Nissan’s e-Pedal Step which, when activated, allows the movement of the car to be controlled using just the accelerator pedal. When the foot is lifted from the accelerator, moderate braking is applied (up to 0.15g) and will decelerate the Juke to a crawl (~3mph).
Externally, the Juke Hybrid can be identified by the fitment of a new front grille mesh design with a smaller aperture to ensure aero efficiency is fully optimised and hybrid badging is fitted to the side and rear of the vehicle.
19” Aero alloy wheels, derived from the all-new Nissan ARIYA, are now standard on Tekna+ models for visual impact and efficiency.
Juke Hybrid benefits from the product improvements recently introduced on the overall Juke range, including two-tone 17” alloy wheels, a more aerodynamic rear spoiler, improved BOSE Personal Plus audio system now with 10 speakers and improved keyless entry which includes walk-away lock/approach unlock function. Two new colours, Ceramic Grey and Magnetic Blue, have also been added.
Inside the Juke Hybrid, the driver’s information display has been redesigned to give more information about the new electrified powertrain status. The right side of the drivers’ two instrument dials shows speed, and the left-hand dial shows a power gauge. The battery’s state of charge is displayed in the lower portion of the left-hand dial.
The button for e-Pedal is positioned in the centre console, behind the electric parking brake switch, while the button to activate 100% full electric mode is between two of the central air-vents.
For the introduction of the hybrid version, a new ‘Premiere Edition’ has been added to the range. With a limited run of only 750 vehicles, this special edition is priced from £28,250, and will be the first of the hybrid versions to arrive at Nissan dealer showrooms from the end of July.
This special version is based on an N-Connecta hybrid with the addition of 19” gloss black wheels and black tinted headlamps. The lower side finishers are painted either white or black, depending on colour selected; Storm White and Gun Metallic both come with a pearl black roof or just simply pearl black.
Finishing off the look on the outside is graphic detailing on the roof and door mirrors. The interior receives a gloss black gear lever console complimented by grey stitching on the black syntec leather seats. Syntec leather is also placed along the door pockets, centre arm rest and front dashboard, with illuminated kickplates completing the specification.
