Development of Electric 4WD System For Compact Hybrid Car 2019-01-2216
In 2016, NISSAN launched a new electric power train for compact cars that shares the traction system for electric vehicle. NISSAN had utilized this high potential electric powertrain to combine the simple 4WD system, driven by electric motor. In 2002, NISSAN released a simple electric motor driven 4WD system for compact car that converts the engine output to electricity and drives the rear wheels with a direct current (DC) electric motor. This paper describes the system configuration and the value of new driving by combination of electric 4WD and new electric powertrain.
