Don’t think it’s possible. Full spec one sells for US$40k in Japan. Come to SG must sell $200k

TC is not going to - or able to - share any details of this in writing until Japan officially launches it in early Aug wor...

 

So far, i'm told it has foot brake and no electronic brake, such disappointment...

 

1.2L

Don’t forget there is still Nissan Elgrand. If Serena specs top notch who will buy Elgrand. Serena is positioned in the same class as Noah and Honda Stepwagon so the specs will be similar to them.

Elgrand also a few years liao, still no sign of a new model or facelift...

 

Serena being a late entrant, will need to stand out if it hopes to beat the established triplets (which are getting quite commonplace lately). Not sure if stepwagon is still being sold.

 

i think minimally should have EPB instead of the old foot brake lah. Now so many smaller cars already have it, but Nissan choose to lag far far behind...

 

It's not wise of TC or Nissan if they, while trying hard to maintain a gap betw Elgrand and Serena, were to end up making Serena not even appealing to the customers in the first place...

Go and test drive the Serena e-power. It’s nothing like Noah. To me, stuff like e park brake is good to have but nothing much. You only touch it twice during a trip.

The facelift version already launched in japan. So in Singapore they have also shared the picture. You can see the Singapore Facebook page of e-power Serena for the pictures and local specifications. But yah there is no EPB only footbrake and it is actually quite low spec the model they brought in.

Did you mean it's better or worse than Noah?

 

EPB is useful, not merely for touch leh. I find the Autohold very useful. And it usually only comes with EPB.

Test drove the car.   Good drive, agile and responsive.  Agree with Atrecord that Nissan should provide more value for the price.

Things just went South...

Apparenty Tan Chong touted great value cos 1.2L means annual road tax is only $500, so that's substantial savings over competitors like the Triplets...

Then today dropped the bombshell that road tax should be $1300...

So over 10 yr, the car will cost $8K more.

Let's see if they will reduce the price of the car, or just count on e-power to beat the competition, while price is much higher...

Why the sharp increase? Any idea?

No thanks to our unique road tax structure. For hybrid or EV, the road tax payable is the higher of:

1) amount calculated based on engine capacity

2) amount calculated based on power output from the electric motor

In the case of ePower Serena, the power output of the electric motor is equivalent to ~2L N.A. engine, thus is slapped with a higher road tax.

The same case for Honda Odyssey Hybrid, which is running on a 2.0L petrol driven engine, supposedly having cheaper road tax than the normal 2.4 L petrol engine, but ended up with >25% extra, due to power output from the electric motor.

The price range slated between SGD 140~180K inclusive of COE previously. Have they finalized the price?

And also, does it comes with electronic brake or still foot brake?

Size wise,  is it something like Toyota Noah and/or Honda Stepwagon?

I saw a review @ YouTube that mentioned there will be "fake noise" generated for speed below 30km/h due to the "almost noiseless" state of the car and it couldn't be turn off (unlike Nissan Note). Is that also true for Singapore version?
