Nissan GT-R and X-Trail Hybrid to hit India roads soon

Nissan will launch its iconic GT-R sports car and new X-Trail Hybrid crossover in India in fiscal 2016. The GT-R will be rolled out in September, while the new X-Trail Hybrid will follow before the end of the financial year.

Known for its outstanding performance in rugged terrains, Nissan's flagship GT-R sports car enables the driver to enjoy its capabilities to the fullest, whether navigating corners of a winding mountain road, cruising on the highway or in an urban environment.

The current GT-R's twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 petrol engine produces 550PS of power and 632Nm of torque. Its 0.26 drag coefficient, one of the best amongst supercars, helps the GT-R slice through the air efficiently.

With its new X-Trail Hybrid, Nissan will bring its latest hybrid vehicle technology to India for the first time.  As the market's first ever full hybrid SUV, the car comes equipped with the 2.0-litre MR20DD petrol engine twinned with an advanced 31kw electric motor. With its powerful acceleration and remarkable quietness, the crossover provides a rewarding driving experience.

The X-Trail Hybrid delivers sprightly driving response right off the line due to the 2.0L engine with added punch provided by its electric motor. The Intelligent Dual Clutch Control is Nissan's original hybrid system that drives the wheels and regenerates electricity by using one motor.

With one of the two clutches completely separating the motor from the engine, the system enables EV mode driving in high-speed situations with highly efficient energy regeneration. The price of both the cars is yet to be announced.
