Japanese outlet Best Car Web previously reported the potential relaunch of a Skyline e-SUV.
Interestingly, a new report from the same outlet suggests that Nissan will also develop a 4-door fastback Skyline EV.
Nissan will reportedly launch an electric Skyline fastback with four doors. It can apparently generate a combined output of 443 horsepower from two electric motors.
The Skyline fastback EV also supports a four-wheel drive configuration. According to Bendigo Advertiser, this variant will have a capacity of 330kW. It may launch in the “northern autumn of 2025.”
Electrek reported that Nissan will base the Skyline e-SUV on the electric Ariya model. It is set to introduce the Skyline e-SUV as early as 2025.
It is also expected to offer an output of more than 450 horsepower. Interestingly, it may hit the US market under the company’s Infiniti brand.
Notably, the existing Skyline car sells in the North American market as the Infiniti Q50.
About the Nissan Skyline
In hindsight, Nissan initially launched the Skyline car in 1969 after it merged with the original Skyline maker, Prince Motor Company.
The Skyline’s GT-R variant debuted in the same year with enhanced handling and power. In 1989, it officially introduced the legendary R32 Skyline GT-R.
It significantly appealed to the Japanese automotive market in the 1990s with the nickname “Godzilla.”
Now, the model is set to potentially mirror the same success with an all-electric powertrain. Apart from electrifying the Skyline, Nissan also plans to launch electric counterparts of the popular Juke and Qashqai models.
