Nissan e-Power, or when the electricity is reluctant to dispense with the petrol (not that bad)

Nissan Epower 100

Nissan e-Power is the next step of Nissan in their conquest of the world of electricity. Released today in Yokohama, the system promises a big advantage for electric cars, based on the experience that has the japanese manufacturer after having sold 250,000 units of its ram electric, the Nissan Leaf.

And, paradoxically, the next step of Nissan in the conquest of the world of electricity used gasoline. Even a little bit nothing more.

What is the system e-Power Nissan?

The technology of the Nissan e-Power is in taking full advantage of the usual electrical system of Nissan, but to support the batteries with a gasoline engine that provides power when it is needed. An extended range electric of all life, even from an industrial point of view, we classify this technology as a hybrid engine in series.

The system is composed of a kinematic chain electric, in which the electric motor moves the wheels, a battery, a gasoline generator and an inverter. Nothing that we did not meet an old enemy commercial of the Nissan Leaf called the Chevrolet Volt.

What does e-Power to the current scene?

As obvious advantage of the system is the suppression of this dependence of cable and plug that has any pure electric, while having the experience of driving that gives an electric. Nissan also claims that this structure tends to need a motor and a battery of larger dimensions, although ensure you have "broken the code and learned how to minimize and reduce the weight, to develop methods of control of the engine more responsive and to optimize the management of energy".

As a result of these improvements, which announces Nissan, the e-Power uses a battery of smaller dimensions than the one that incorporates the Leaf, without sacrificing the advantages of the electric Nissan, amongst others, the delivery of torque is almost instant. In terms of the efficiency of your heat engine support, Nissan promises a "performance comparable to a conventional hybrid highlights", especially in paths in urban areas.

It is striking that Nissan has taken this step back to take a step forward in his research on electric cars. Or is it that the conditions which you have in the real world, in terms of infrastructure and in terms of battery development, it has forced Yokohama to put the feet on the ground and search for an intermediate step between the current situation and the promising future of pure electric cars? Be that as it may, welcome to the Nissan e-Power, if with this system is you get to generalize the electric mobility, especially in the cities.
