Nissan's first e-Power car has just arrived in Singapore and its the 7-seater Serena e-Power.

Even though the Serena e-Power is said to have a 100% electric drive, it's actually a form of hybrid called a series hybrid.

Drive is provided entirely by electric motors, but the electric motor is driven by a combination of batteries and a petrol-powered generator. The generator kicks in to charge the batteries whenever power in the batteries run low. It is never used to drive the wheels.

As a result, the Serena e-Power enjoys the efficiency and instantaneous power delivery of electric vehicles and the convenience of traditional cars with internal combustion engines. There's no need to worry about charging the car or having to find charging points.

According to Nissan, the electric motors in the Serena e-Power delivers up to 134hp and 320nm of torque. That's about as much torque as you get from a Golf GTI.

While performance is undoubtedly important, the Serena e-Power is, first and foremost, a family car and so it comes with a host of family friendly-features including configurable seating arrangements, automatic rear sliding doors, a high interior cabin height of 1.4 metres, and 360 degrees monitor with object detection.

The Nissan Serena e-Power is on sale now from Tan Chong Motors and prices start from S$140,800 (inclusive COE).
