Nissan is discussing a new dual-engine full-wheel control technology called e-4ORCE,media reported. The technology is designed to provide instant torque to the four wheels of the EV in a balanced and predictable manner, with the goal of giving the EV the same power and handling as many high-end sports cars.
Nissan says the “e” represents Nissan’s technology as a 100% electric drive, with the word “force” meaning “arousal power and energy” and the number “4” representing the full wheel control drive.
Nissan said the technology was born during the development of the GT-R ATTESA E-TS torque split system and the Nissan Patrol Smart 4×4 system. The e-4ORCE is used to manage the POWER output and braking performance of the EV to make vehicle driving more smooth.
Nissan points out that the e-4ORCE technology will bring unparalleled ride comfort because it minimizes vehicle bumps and dives. It’s more compatible with the city’s walk-and-stop driving style, which maintains ride comfort while accelerating on bumpy roads.
Nissan also said that thanks to ultra-high-precision engine and brake control, the e-4ORCE can increase driver confidence by accurately tracking automatically scheduled routes. The system will make driving on all kinds of roads more enjoyable.
Nissan is expected to showcase the e-4ORCE technology at the ceS Ariya concept car booth, as well as a test car with the technology at the event in Las Vegas. It is unclear when the new e-4ORCE technology will be used in mass-produced cars.
