While the Nissan Kicks e-Power was scheduled to launch in Thailand last month, it now looks like the car won't be introduced before next month
The upcoming Nissan Kicks e-power has been recently spotted with almost no camouflage to hide its exterior updates. The new set of spy images comes after the spy pic of the Kicks facelift. The new Nissan Kicks facelift and its e-Power version were scheduled to hit the Thai-market late last month but got delayed till mid-may due to the ongoing unfavourable circumstances. One can expect both the new models to launch in Thailand next month. Moreover, the e-Power version of the SUV will go on sale in Japan in June this year. The new spy image reveals that the upcoming model features a revised front profile with the addition of a new pair of headlamps along with a bigger grille.

The updated headlamp cluster looks more aggressive now, and an all-new grille is a V-motion unit surrounded by some premium piano black and chrome accents. The updated rear profile of the SUV is not yet revealed, but we expect the car to have revised taillights along with a new bumper. We also expect the crossover SUV to be offered with some new colour shade options. Moreover, the interior details of the car are also unavailable. Mostly, the cabin of the car will employ subtle updates like the addition of revised upholstery and some additional features.
The facelift version of the Nissan Kicks employs subtle tweaks on outside and inside
These minor updates employed on the outside and inside of the Kicks will make the SUV look more premium and upmarket. The Thai-spec Nissan Kicks facelift will derive power from a 1.2-litre HR12 e-Power hybrid motor. This powertrain option is already available in Japan and is loved by the people for its performance and frugality. It’s still unknown whether the India-spec Kicks would get a similar update. The local version is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol mill, while it's underpinned by a less sophisticated M0 platform tht comes from the Renault Captur. In comaprison, the international version is based on the V-platform. The Indian model is also bigger in size.
