Nissan has unveiled a caller attack to electrified powertrain improvement which it says volition let it to execute terms parity betwixt its hybrid vehicles and ICE vehicles by astir 2026.
Under Nissan’s X-in-1 approach, Nissan volition stock halfway powertrain components betwixt its EV and e-Power models and modularize them. This volition effect successful a 30 percent simplification successful improvement and manufacturing costs betwixt 2019 and 2026. Not lone volition it let hybrids to execute terms parity with ICEs by astir 2026 but it volition besides let Nissan to execute terms parity betwixt afloat EVs and ICEs successful 2030.

Two antithetic powertrains volition beryllium developed. The archetypal volition beryllium for its EVs that follow a 3-in-1 module, integrating the motor, inverter, and reducer into a azygous casing. Meanwhile, the carmaker’s e-Power hybrid models volition follow a 5-in-1 setup that combines the motor, inverter, generator, reducer, and increaser.
The reducer utilized by Nissan slows the revolutions per infinitesimal of the electrical centrifugal to a velocity that volition crook the axle and wheels, portion the increaser speeds up the revolutions of the e-Power’s combustion motor to rotation the generator that recharges the system’s battery.
Nissan notes that packing these components into a azygous portion doesn’t conscionable amended accumulation efficiencies and reduces powertrain costs but besides results successful size and value reductions that amended driving show and minimize sound and vibration. The carmaker volition besides follow a recently developed electrical centrifugal that reduces the usage of dense uncommon world elements to 1 percent oregon little of magnet weight.
“We marque the astir of our expertise and know-how from our more-than-a-decade agelong improvement and accumulation of electrified technologies,” noted elder vice president of Nissan, Toshihiro Hirai. “Through our innovations successful electrified powertrain development, we’ll proceed to make caller worth for customers and present 100% motor-driven vehicles – EVs and e-POWER – arsenic wide arsenic possible.”
