Tokyo 2017: Nissan Serena e-Power revealed with semi-autonomous tech

Nissan brings e-Power technology to 2018 Serena

Nissan has reimagined electric propulsion once again after revealing the Serena e-Power at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by the company's e-Power drivetrain, the electric-powered minivan comes with an internal combustion engine (ICE) that acts as a range extender for the electric motors that drive the vehicle.

Thanks to this setup, the Serena e-Power does not need to be externally charged as the ICE does it for the electric motors. It shares many of its components from the all-new Leaf and Note e-Power and is also available with ProPilot, Nissan's proprietary semi-autonomous driving tech. This enables the minivan to drive on its own on a single lane on the highway.

Other details about its powertrain, including its output figures remain a mystery though it's highly likely it almost shares the same with the Note e-Power.

Design-wise, the Serena e-Power differs from its standard counterparts by way of a blue-accented badge at the front grill, along with custome LED taillights. Topping it all off are the eye-catching aluminum wheels. Inside, the second row comes with captain seats which also get the distinct blue accents.

It will be available in the Japanese market by Q1 of 2018.
