2021 Nissan Qashqai teased, will be offered with petrol generator hybrid system

The all-new 2021 Nissan Qashqai has been teased by the Japanese manufacturer, with an international launch slated for mid-next year before arriving in local showrooms. Soon to be in its third generation, the medium-size SUV is underpinned by a new platform shared with Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi under their recently announced alliance. The car is part of Nissan’s rollout of 12 all-new models over the next three years, and follows the launch of the 2020 Juke SUV earlier this year.

Australia’s five cheapest electric cars, and how far they can go between recharges

Sales of electric cars are gaining momentum in Australia, with demand up by 14 per cent so far this year in a vehicle market that is down by 18 per cent. However the raw numbers are still minuscule, with only 1400 electric cars reported as sold by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries in the first 10 months of 2020. As a proportion of the entire new-car market over the same period (726,000) it equates to 0.2 per cent of Australian demand for new vehicles.

Frontier, is that you?

What better way to tease an impending product update than to subtly slide it into the reveal of another product. Well played Nissan! The image in the presentation, which shows some Nissan designers staring 'Ferris Bueller style' at some conceptual drawings on the wall (totally natural and candid), features a row of three utes that represent Nissan’s global pickup range.
