2022+ Nissan Serena e-Power Hybrid (GC28 / GFC28)

Nissan Serena Hybrid e-Power Import Information for Australia

Plus Model Details and Specifications

Nissan Serena AUTECH

There are a number of Nissan Serena import options for Australia including several Nissan Serena Hybrid (S-hybrid / e-Power) models and non-hybrid Lifecare / welcab models.

Out of the Serena range we only source the latest two e-Power models – the 2018 to 2022 Nissan Serena hybrid e-Power (HC27 / HFC27) and the 2022+ Nissan Serena hybrid e-Power (GC28 / GFC28). The latter is dealt with here.

Compared to the previous 1.2L model, the latest 2022+ Serena e-Power uses a larger 1.4 L HR14DDe petrol engine producing 72 kW (98 PS) with an EM57 electric motor producing 120 kW (163 PS) and lithium-ion battery.

All Serena e-Powers are 2WD, have a 52L fuel tank and come with Nissan’s Pro-Pilot autonomous driving and parking system.

The Serena e-Power Luxion is the only 7-seater model, all the rest are 8-seater.

Nissan’s e-Power system uses the petrol engine to charge the battery which powers the electric motor/s that drive the car. This is an extremely efficient hybrid system with exceptional fuel economy that sits between a full EV and normal hybrid system.

Nissan ePower hybrid tech

Serena hybrid e-Power fuel economy varies depending on the model and test method. Efficiency from Nissan spec data ranges from 18.4 to 20.6 km/L (5.44 to 4.86 L/100 km) (WLTC).

The Serena e-Power has all the driving benefits of electric power including instant acceleration, regenerative braking and quiet operation without the need to plug-in for recharge.

The hybrid Serena is equipped with Nissan’s 2nd generation e-POWER which is more powerful, smooth and quiet than the previous version.

How Nissan e-Power improves daily driving:

Nissan uses the same e-Power technology for a range of models in addition to the Serena hybrid, including the Note, X-Trail, Kicks and Aura.

Contact us for current availability and pricing if you would like to import your own Serena hybrid e-Power to Australia.

Every vehicle of interest to our clients is carefully inspected in person at auction, with more pictures provided along with market pricing guidance to help set the budget.

There is a good selection of Serena hybrid e-Power models going through auction in Japan every week – we can assist with the entire process from choosing the best example to shipping it to Australia.

We specialise in direct car import from Japan and have been sourcing vehicles to order for private Australian buyers for over 25 years.

Every vehicle is hand-picked and we only source the very best.

We make Nissan Serena hybrid e-Power import easy with physical inspections of vehicles by experienced staff at over 30 auctions every week in the Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Kyushu / Fukuoka regions.

We start by focusing only on vehicles with the highest auction grades. But there is a LOT more involved than just basic auction grading !

Auction reports are often not reliable – we inspect every vehicle of interest in person to ensure it is up to our standard and has the options and features you want.

Most people (even Japanese export agents) do not realise that a significant % of vehicles in Japan are bought and sold by Japanese dealers for a quick profit between different auctions. If you are not aware of this you will almost certainly pay more than you needed to for exactly the same car.

Our experience with this situation alone will often save you more than the cost of our service fee.

Our import agent service includes a pre-check for past auction records using JCHC, at no cost to you. This allows us to rule out:

  • Cars recently auctioned and moved to a different auction for quick resale

  • Graded R (accident repair) cars changed to higher grades

  • Cars that have passed in unsold multiple times indicating a problem with the condition and/or price.

Our thorough Japan auction inspections include checks of engine, transmission, air conditioning / electrics plus pictures inside, outside and underneath showing options / features and any condition issues. Just like the auction history checks, in-person inspections at auction are all part of our service – no extra charge.

Following these rules and being very selective on quality allows us to consistently target first-time auctioned vehicles for our clients in the best condition and at the best price.

We also ensure that any outstanding factory recalls are completed prior to export from Japan, which is essential before import to Australia / SEVS compliance. *Recall work is free in Japan and will be arranged at no extra charge before your vehicle goes to the Port, but please note there will be a small transport charge (generally $200 to $300) to send the vehicle to the nearest Nissan dealer.

Once your Serena hybrid has been exported from Japan all original paperwork and additional items such as spare keys and books are sent to you by EMS. This includes the Export Certificate (showing up to the last two re-registration inspection dates and odometer readings, depending on vehicle age) for your peace of mind.

Port clearance and compliance will be arranged for you, and registration can also be taken care of by the compliance workshop for your convenience.

For more detail see How our import process works.

Our automated auction alerts system ensures you never miss a suitable car.

Set up FREE auction alerts to receive daily email updates for the hybrid Serena – the easiest way to monitor auction vehicles in Japan.
