Today, Japanese automobile manufacturer, Nissan revealed a high-power, twin-motor all wheel-control test car which was equipped with new technologies that were being developed for the company’s next generation of EVs. This test vehicle was based on the all-electric Nissan Leaf e+, that features an enhanced all-wheel-drive system powered by high-power motors that sit on the front and rear axle and are integrated with Nissan’s latest chassis control technology. The end result is an electric all-wheel-control system that will boost the overall performance of Nissan’s future electric cars.

This exciting new EV technology is a key component of Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society. This test car was powered by a high-output twin-motor drive that used separate front and rear electric motors. These motors produce a total power output of 304 HP and 680 Nm of maximum torque. Apart from providing immense power, the advanced all-wheel-drive powertrain also offers smooth acceleration and a comfortable ride. This means drivers can benefit from the all-wheel-control system on almost any road condition, as all the wheels will receive an equal amount of power, thus improving overall driving performance and confidence.

Here is a list of all the main specifications of the test car:

Electric motorEM57 × 2 (Front and Rear)
Max power/Max torque227kW / 680Nm
Length4,480 mm

A few months ago, Nissan has organized a one-off-a-kind screening for the India vs New Zealand match at a mall in Bangalore. To display the battery capacity and range, Nissan is using their best-selling electric vehicle, LEAF, to power the live screening of the India vs New Zealand semi-final match. This means that cricket fans in Bengaluru can now experience Nissan’s (LEAF) innovation in action, at the World Trade Centre (Orion Mall side atrium) in Malleshwaram.
