The roots of Nissan’s leadership in Electric Vehicles

The roots of Nissan’s leadership in Electric Vehicles



(Click the “CC” button on the bottom right-hand corner of the video to switch on closed captions in English or Japanese.)

Nissan has been a pioneer in creating and developing electric vehicles (EV). With 70 years of EV heritage, built on the legacy of Prince Motors, Nissan’s goal is to bring the benefits of EV to more people in more places.

In 1947, the company succeeded in creating a prototype 2-seater truck (500kg load capacity) with a 4.5hp motor and a new body design. It was named “Tama” after the area where it was produced. Its top speed was 34km/h. Next, they created their first passenger car: with 2 doors and seating for 4, it boasted a top speed of 35km/h and a cruising range of 65km on a single charge.

While much has changed, in design and technology, since the Tama’s debut, many of the same features and benefits remain and seen in the new Nissan LEAF.

Nissan e-POWER technology explained

Nissan e-POWER technology explained



The Nissan e-POWER has been a hit with consumers in Japan, where it’s helped make the Nissan Note the country’s best-selling registered car. Combining 100% electric motor drive with a gasoline engine that charges the battery, e-POWER cars give customers instant, smooth acceleration and excellent fuel efficiency.

The e-POWER system includes a gasoline engine with a power generator, an inverter, a battery and an electric motor. Used solely to charge the high-output battery, the gasoline engine always runs at an optimal speed. This leads to superior fuel efficiency and lower emissions compared with a traditional internal combustion engine.

Currently, e-POWER is available in the Note and Serena models in Japan. More than 70% of Note sales and almost half of Serena sales in the country are e-POWER versions.
At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Nissan announced that it plans to debut the e-POWER technology in European markets by 2022.

The e-POWER system is a key part of Nissan’s electrification strategy. Nissan plans to launch more e-POWER models globally as part of its Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.

Craftsmanship: building the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign

Craftsmanship: building the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign



(Original Language: Italian. Click the “CC” button in the right-hand lower corner of the video to switch on closed captions in English or Japanese.)

In their first-ever collaboration, Nissan and Italdesign have created a new prototype car – the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign, which could become the blueprint for a limited run of 50 hand-built production vehicles. The prototype is a celebration of two golden anniversaries: 50 years of the GT-R, in 2019, and 50 years of Italdesign, in 2018.

The car combines the best of two cultures – Japanese performance and Italian craftsmanship. The prototype was built with pride and dedication by Italdesign craftsmen at their workshop in Turin, Italy.

Italdesign is one of the world’s leading carrozzeria, or coachbuilders. It provides a wide range of services dedicated to the development of new vehicles and industrial products, ranging from styling to engineering and from prototype manufacturing to testing and validation.

“Underneath its design, it hides something unique and very special” Federico Ferrero, head of special vehicles at Italdesign, says of the GT-R50. “It’s the knowledge and the hands of skilled men, who’ve been building cars for decades, that brought the concept and its challenging and unique design to reality.”

Based on the latest GT-R NISMO, the Nissan GT-R50 features a pronounced power bulge on the hood, a lowered roofline, and prominent “samurai blade” cooling outlets behind the front wheels. The stretched LED headlights and the floating tail lights evoke the GT-R’s iconic signature.

The GT-R50’s interior features extensive use of two different carbon fiber finishes across the center console, instrument panel and door linings, along with black Alcantara and fine black Italian leather on the seats.

The gold accents used within the interior echo the exterior, giving it an elegant but sporty look, says GT-R50 workshop team leader Stefano D’Araio.

Nissan VC-Turbo engine optimizes power and efficiency

Nissan VC-Turbo engine optimizes power and efficiency



Nissan’s VC-Turbo engine offers any compression ratio between 8:1 (for high performance) and 14:1 (for high efficiency). The engine delivers 248 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm and 273 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm (premium fuel). The VC-Turbo’s specific power output is higher than many competing turbocharged gasoline engines and comes close to the performance of some V6 gasoline engines. The unit’s single-scroll turbo ensures immediate accelerator responses on demand.

Along with the world’s first multi-link system, the engine features an electric motor with a unique Harmonic Drive reduction gear to manage the variable compression ratio. The electric motor is connected to the Harmonic Drive with a control arm. As the Harmonic Drive rotates, the control shaft at the base of the engine rotates, moving the multi-link system within the engine.
