Nissan EV-11 prototype

Nissan carmaker showcased a complex EV-IT system developed to support electric driving 24/7 and also previewed its electric vehicle platform on a Tiida-based prototype to demonstrate the superior driving pleasure of a pure 0-emission car. The EV platform is comprised of a highly rigid body, high-performance motor, compact lithium-ion battery with high-power output and energy capacity, offering incredible driving performance and safety, but in the same time providing a quiet and peaceful driving experience. The electric motor develops 80 kW and 280 Nm of torque. Its unique motor also contributes to the seamless acceleration of the vehicle. The battery is placed under the vehicle floor for more efficient packaging, without compromising cabin or cargo space. The regenerative brake system employed to recharge the battery during deceleration and braking extends the driving range to more than 160 km under a full charge. With only a simple touch of a button, the navigation map shows the driving radius within range under the current state of charge. The time function enables the air-conditioner or battery charging to begin at a specified time. The battery charging can be set to start at a specified time at night to benefit from more favorable electricity rates. The all-electric vehicle slated for launch in 2010 will have a unique design and body. The Japanese carmaker plans to unveil the design of the production EV at its new Global Headquarters Opening in Yokohama on August 2nd. Nissan continues promoting the development of zero-emission vehicles based on the Blue Citizenship spirit by introducing effective technologies, products and services into the market. Actual range may vary depending on driving style and conditions. A Nissan Zero-emission website will go live on August 2nd.
