The 2017 Nissan Note Hatchback will get a new extended range version as it will use a new hybrid technology provided by Nissan E-power similar to that used in the long range BMW i3. This was announced yesterday by Nissan at their Japan headquarters.
Continuing Nissan Leaf's Success
Nissan wants to remain the flagship manufacturer of electric cars worldwide as they continue to innovate. The success of the Nissan LEAF, with over 250,000 units sold worldwide, has allowed them to create a new efficient and clean technology for propulsion compact models. The Japanese manufacturer is now on a new stage of electric extended-range vehicles that do not require an external charger to recharge your batteries.
Nissan e-Power technology borrows the manufacturer's experience in electric propulsion system to create a compact extended-range electric vehicle in the form of the 2017 Nissan Note Hatchback firstly - but not lastly. The idea is similar to the BMW i3 REX, according to Green Car Reports, an EV that this version also has a small gasoline motorcycle engine 650cc for recharging your batteries for when it run out of energy, it can charge on this. But the Nissan E-power has some subtle differences from it.
In this class of vehicle, the electric motor is the one that drives the wheels while the combustion is relegated only to generate power recharging car batteries. Thus, the gasoline engine is never responsible for moving the car. This marks a notable difference from conventional hybrids where both engines, electric and combustion or alternate work jointly to move the drive wheels.
Nissan engineers have been able to create a compact unit that can be installed in conventional vehicles that are small in size. Without going into details at this time, vehicles of these features typically require motors and battery packs larger. However, Nissan has managed to reduce their weight and improve efficiency by getting a smaller of the Leaf battery while offering "the same driving experience " .
If we talk about three key benefits: driving experience, efficiency and practicality. E-Power technology offers the maximum instantaneous torque produced by electric motors. This results in a strong acceleration capacity, fast response and smooth ride. Fuel consumption is very low since the combustion engine only operates when necessary as in conventional hybrids.
The battery charge should not be a problem since the small fuel tank will not be necessary to find a charger and wait a long time to restart the match. On the other hand, one can also benefit from incredible comfort in circulation since most of the time when the combustion engine is turned off, the car will not emit noise or vibration and you will not be high when the small block to begin using gasoline.
Nissan wants to go by entering your e-Power system size vehicles gradually to invade its range with this type of propulsion, according to Car Advice. The first model of its kind to be produced in mass is the 2017 Nissan Note Hatchback e-Power although not yet know the technical details of it and its price within the range of Note.
