Nissan Motor Co. introduced a new drive system called e-POWER that marks the first time that e-Power technology is available for consumers. With this the company has marked a significant milestone in the electrification strategy under Nissan Intelligent Mobility. It is borrowed from the EV EV technology perfected in the Nissan LEAF.

Nissan LEAF is the best-selling pure electric car with more than 250,000 units sold. The e-Power is paired with a small petrol unit to charge the high-output battery when necessary, that in turn eliminates the need of external charger.

The system features full electric-motor drive that means the drive is complete sent by the electric motor. The power from the battery is delivered to the e-POWER’s compact unit that comprises of gasoline engine, power generator, a motor and inverter. In a conventional hybrid system, the gasoline engine is used to drive the wheels when the car is running out of battery power, but Nissan's e-Power system is connected to the wheels and thus simply charges the battery.

This system delivers massive torque that is almost instantly, which enhances drive response and results in smooth acceleration. More interestingly, the system is quiet in its operation more like an electric vehicle. As compared to leading conventional hybrids the e-POWER relies on the engine much less frequently and is fuel efficient.

Nissan is aggressively working on zero-emission, zero-fatality world for driving through its EV program and autonomous drive technology. To compose it into a reality, the company is developing “Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” which cornerstones the  company decisions around how cars are powered, driven, and their integration into society. It is a step towards achieving zero-emission vision through a more efficient electric powertrain.
