The Nissan JUKE is one of the most uniquely styled crossovers on the market and the small crossover is about to inspire disbelief yet again. The first generation Nissan JUKE kicked off Nissan’s crossover sales and now, with the second generation on the way, it’s looking for a new way to beat the competition. The latest rumor on the mill is that the 2017 Nissan JUKE will receive an even greener powertrain.
The Japanese automaker is keeping their lips sealed but a green powertrain certainly isn’t unlikely. The Nissan LEAF®, the most popular electric vehicle in the world, boasts a battery pack and electric motor that could power the Nissan JUKE.
The Nissan JUKE currently stands on its own tires with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that packs 217 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan LEAF®’s powertrain is comparable with 107 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the 2017 Nissan JUKE will likely have a variety of engines to choose from.
Still, Nissan is a tricky automaker to decipher. For now, they seem to be keeping everything to themselves when it comes to the second generation Nissan JUKE.
