The 2022 Nissan Qashqai was unveiled last month. This popular crossover SUV comes with a revised design and exclusive hybrid powertrain options. The model you’re looking at is the Rogue Sport, but the Qashqai should look exactly the same. This SUV is sold worldwide as the Nissan Qashqai. On the other hand, it is called Rogue Sport in America.
As a result, the Rogue Sport really borrows everything from the Qashqai variant. Anyway, both models get the same updates. It includes many external and internal changes. This will cause the price to go up a bit and sales will start later in 2021.

2022 Nissan Qashqai comes with hybrid power
In the most recent 2022 Nissan Qashqai spy photos, we saw the speedometer at 8000 rpm. This clearly indicates the gasoline powertrain option. In addition, the manufacturer will remove all diesel engines in the near future. The best thing about this SUV is the electric drive system on offer. It is a 12V hybrid system from Nissan Electronic Power. We also think the Qashqai will use Mitsubishi‘s plug-in hybrid technology, which is now part of Nissan.
The PHEV version will not be immediately available. However, Nissan will offer 1.3-liter turbo diesel options and 1.5-liter turbo gasoline options. The offer is expected to include a 1.3-liter turbo diesel and a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine. The most powerful version will develop approximately 350 horsepower. Finally, the manufacturer will present a revised CVT automatic transmission.
2022 Nissan Qashqai price and release date
The price of the highly anticipated 2022 Nissan Qashqai will start around $20,000. On the other hand, the US version of the Rogue Sport now costs over $24,000. Sales will begin later in 2021 and we await further details on the new hybrid powertrain.
