Electric car Nissan Leaf received four-wheel driveOctober 24, 2019
The Japanese automaker has released a test car with the goal of developing four-wheel steering technology for next-generation electric vehicles.
The test car was based on the Nissan Leaf e + electric car, which received two electric motors – one for each axle. Thanks to a combination of Nissan’s own chassis control, a completely new all-wheel drive is implemented. Nissan uses this test car to develop technology that demonstrates better driving performance.
“Nissan plans to introduce a new generation of electric vehicles in the near future. 4WD control technology and chassis control technology are combined to significantly improve “ride, cornering and stopping performance,” said Takao Asami, Nissan’s senior executive.
The test car is equipped with two electric motors, the total return of which is 227 kW of power and 680 Nm of torque. Nissan highlights the new powerplant control technology that delivers fast response and smooth acceleration in all driving situations.
