Nissan has confirmed the Australian pricing and model grades for the all-new Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, which goes on sale in Australia next month.

Nissan is expanding the Pathfinder SUV range with the addition of a high-tech, high-efficiency hybrid powertrain that combines Nissanís responsive QR25DER 2.5-litre supercharged four cylinder petrol engine with a torque-assist 15kW electric motor.

Maximum power output for the all-new Pathfinder Hybrid is 188kW with a peak torque of 330Nm. The Pathfinder Hybrid achieves a torque curve almost identical to the V6-powered version.

Impressively, the combined-cycle fuel consumption rating (91RON) is 8.4-litres per 100km (2WD) and 8.5-litres per 100km for 4WD variants, approximately 15 per cent less than the V6-powered Nissan Pathfinder.

The Pathfinder Hybridís highly efficient petrol-electric powertrain uses an intelligent dual-clutch system. The first clutch operates in conjunction with the supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine while the second clutch manages engagement of the 15kW electric motor. Control of each clutch is determined by the driving mode, resulting in optimal use of the petrol engine and the electric motor for maximum efficiency. Drive is sent to the wheels via Nissanís X-TRONIC transmission.

The Pathfinder Hybridís electric torque assist motor functions as a power generator during braking and deceleration, recharging the on-board 144-volt Lithium-ion battery, which is located under the third row of seats at the rear of the vehicle. The batteryís compact size means the Pathfinder Hybrid shares the same rear occupant space and cargo capacity as its V6 counterpart.

Maximising refinement in the Pathfinder Hybrid are two clever technologies. The first is Electric Active Control Mounts (E-ACM). These support the supercharged four-cylinder petrol and minimise engine vibration when it is detected. The E-ACM engine mounts apply a reverse-phase cancelling force to counter these vibrations, resulting in a smoother and more comfortable ride.

The second technology is Active Noise Control (ANC). Microphones located inside the cabin of the Pathfinder Hybrid monitor the presence of undesirable sounds. When detected, they are cancelled with an equal and opposite sound frequency emitted by the vehicleís audio system.

Like the V6-powered Nissan Pathfinder, the all-new Pathfinder Hybrid will be available in 2WD (ST model grade) and 4WD (ST-L and Ti), the latter controlled by Nissanís clever ALL-MODE 4x4-i system which maximises the Pathfinder Hybridís ability to handle a variety of terrain types.

Towing capacity in the Pathfinder Hybrid is 1,650kg (braked trailer.) The Pathfinder V6 has a towing capacity of 2,700kg (braked trailer).

Three model grades will be available in the Pathfinder Hybrid. Each corresponds to its V6 counterpart and includes the same extensive list of standard features that have helped make the Pathfinder so popular since its local release late last year. Along with these, the Pathfinder Hybrid contains a number of specific features, shown below.
