The Australian unveiling of the 2023 Nissan X-Trail coincides with its European debut.

Entry-level 2023 X-Trail models get a revised 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. This 135 kW (181 horsepower) engine is mated to a CVT. Front- or all-wheel drive is available.

X-e-POWER Trail's technology will be accessible in Australia. In Europe, this powertrain uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine as a generator for the electric motor. This variant produces 150 kW (201 hp) in front-wheel drive, although Australians will only have the e-4ORCE option.

In European standard, a 94 kW (126 hp) electric motor in the back boosts output to 157 kW (211 horsepower). This decreases 0-100 km/h to 7 seconds and boosts top speed to 112 mph (180 km/h). e-4ORCE adjusts torque and braking for each wheel, improving grip.

Nissan Australia managing director Adam Paterson is delighted about the all-new X-Trail with e-POWER and e-4ORCE.

“We're convinced customers will adore its electric performance, confident handling, and solid practicality. Nissan will offer unique customer appeal, as expected. We're excited to see it at our stores."

Nissan has not yet released price for the 2023 X-Trail e-POWER, which starts at A$36,750 ($24,710) with the 2.5-liter engine. The X-Trail e-POWER will be delivered in early 2023, while the combustion-powered vehicles will arrive in the fourth quarter.
