Offering the perfect hybrid solution without comprising on legroom space and cargo capacity, Nissan has installed the Lithium-ion battery under the 3rd row of seats.
The power coming from both the supercharged engine and electric motor is efficiently managed by a Nissan Intelligent Dual Clutch System (one motor / two clutch parallel system). The 2.5 litre supercharged gas engine and the 15kW electric motor work in sync to offer performance matching to that delivered by the Pathfinder 3.5 litre gasoline V6 model. The performance figure of the hybrid stand at – 250 net horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque.
Being a hybrid model fuel efficiency is one of the primary factors playing a strong role in the sales of the car. The Pathfinder Hybrid returns 26 mpg combined which is a 24 percent improvement over the gas model. City fuel economy is 25 mpg, while highway mileage is rated at 28 mpg (27 mpg 4WD). Since it equips the same 19.5 gallon fuel tank as the Pathfinder V6, the estimated range more than 546 miles.
The model features next-generation Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) and regenerative braking system which charges the battery during braking. It also comes with an intuitive ALL-MODE 4×4-i system with selectable 2WD, Auto or 4WD Lock modes.
