Nissan Gripz concept previews range-extender technology for production vehicles

The radical 2+2 sports crossover
uses an extended-range set-up with a small – actual size hasn’t been announced – petrol engine to power the electric motor found in the Nissan LEAF, giving an output of 80kW and 254Nm.

Although Nissan has said that concept is not seen as a direct replacement for either of the Qashqai or Juke, the study looks likely to preview some of the styling for the latter whilst an adaptation of the Gripz’ Series Hybrid powertrain is believed to be on the cards too.
