"Nissan is offering the Note e-POWER to its Japanese customers in three trim levels: S, X and Medalist. Fuel economy on the JC-08 cycle is 37.2 km/L (87 mpg US, 2.69 L/100km); 34.0 km/L (80 mpg US, 2.94 L/100km); and 34.0 km/L, respectively. Pricing for the entry-level S-trim starts at •1,772,280 (US$16,900)."

Both metrics are lower FE wise than the 4th gen Prius on the JC08 cycle

And 4th gen Prius, for comparison:

Man, I'm getting old... I just noticed I already listed both cars' JC08 numbers in the first post.

In my defense, that was a while ago!

I hope Nissan puts in more effort to get the city metric A LOT higher than that for the US market but Iím not holding my breath

40 combined? Must be.

The Note with CVT is already rated at 39 highway / 31 city / 34 combined.

Since the ICE won't actually drive the wheels, it makes me wonder if it's not overkill to use a 3-pot. Well, since it's supposed to require a quicker recharging of the batteries, I might be wrong and it fare better than a portable genset for home usage. But anyway, instead of looking at it as an attempt for a smoothier transition to full-EV, it might be interesting to consider the suitability of this concept to alternate fuels such as ethanol as a step toward a substitution of petroleum-based fuels for renewable ones.

Was a d'oh moment for the guy handling it. I'm sure he'll do so next time. Good PR, that, even if they won't sell it here.

Why didn't it get registered? I guess it would be a good opportunity to road-test it in the heavy traffic back there and get some real-world mileage figures.

I'd like to point out that this is very similar to the Accord Hybrid drivetrain - a car which is rated for ~50mpg city. The major difference with the Accord is that it has a clutched single speed "gearbox" which can allow the engine to drive the wheels directly once you're above (I believe) 50-60mph.
