Someone wants to bring more excitement to car enthusiasts by leaking the images of the Nissan Note e-powered hybrid. While this may sound as exciting indeed, car lovers in the United States would not be able to purchase the model.

Japanese website Liveblog was the responsible outlet to release the photo. Even though the snapshot was possibly taken using a smartphone (because of its quality), the design and the engine for the vehicle is quite impressive.

The SUV has been refurbished with a restyled front end inspired by the Nissan "V-motion" V-shaped grille, swept-back headlights, and a new front bumper shield with reshaped lower air intakes. As for the engine, the Nissan Note hybrid is said to power the wheels entirely via an electric motor. However, the website is still unsure whether it will be powered with the engine serving solely to recharge the battery.

But the aesthetic of the automobile will not reach the North America, Green Car reports. According to the website, the sales for the Nissan Versa Note has been relatively low on the continent.

The reasons behind the low sales might include the tight competition between other huge car companies like Tesla, Volkswagen, and more firms that produce electric cars as well. Furthermore, the outlet claimed that the SUV appeals more to the European and Asian buyers.

Additionally, Paul Tan blog wrote that the Nissan Note might be available first hand in Malaysia. The model would likely compete with models from Honda, Ford and Mazda.

Almost 3 years ago, Tan Chong Motor revealed at the KL International Motor Show that there would be a second generation model of the Nissan Note. Since then, the speculations surrounded the Internet until the car company decided to unleash a bit of detail regarding the upcoming model.
