What is certain is that the relationship of Nissan with the electric vehicles has been successful from the beginning. Can be proud to say that their Nissan LEAF is the electric most sold, having already surpassed the 250,000 units. And one of the problems of this type of vehicle and check to back to possible buyers about autonomy. With the aim of improving this aspect, we have the Nissan e-Power.
This technology will in the not too distant future to give energy to a extended range electric vehicle. This system has an electric motor that serves as a driver’s primary vehicle and also adds a small gasoline engine that will serve as a generator. It is not something unheard of in the segment as it comes to be very similar to the system currently used by the BMW i3 REX.
As we said, your operation will be completely different to that of the traditional hybrid. In them, the gasoline engine does the main work while the electric power serves of support. In this Nissan e-Power the motor electric will take all the load of work, while the petrol will be a mere generator that will only serve to charge batteries and increase the autonomy. In fact, it will not be connected to the wheels.
The advantages of this system will be the same of an electric, but in this case without the worry of having to be holding by plugging it to the network. The system would be almost as quiet as a conventional electric and also would that torque delivery instant. In addition it has been achieved that has a dimensions are very contained, so that they can be installed in compact vehicles. The first to receive it could be the Nissan Note e-Power, which will arrive shortly to Japan.
