As expected, the exterior design of the new vehicle will be made in the style concept of Nissan Gripz, submitted almost 2 years ago and equipped with a hybrid powertrain.

According to Western media, the new Juke will also receive a hybrid version. It is possible that it will be e-Power plant with a 3-cylinder gasoline engine-generator.

It means that the basic power set will be an electric motor.

At the same time such a powerful gasoline generator allows to use a battery of less power, size, weight and cost with all the consequent advantages.

It is also known the 2018 Nissan’s Juke powertrain will not include diesel engines any more.

Finally, the experts inform of an approximate cost of the crossover’s hybrid version – about 20 thousand dollars. The “gasoline” Juke, of course, will be cheaper.
