“The dedicated EV platform is comprised of a highly rigid body, high-performance motor, compact lithium-ion battery with high power output and energy capacity,” says Nissan. The in-house developed electric motor provides 107 hp with a peak torque from 0 RPM of 206 lb-ft. Along with a regenerative brake system and a full-charge, Nissan's new EV platform has a driving range of nearly 100 miles.
Nissan is also flaunting its new “sophisticated IT system” that incorporates a navigation system that shows the driving radius within range under the current state of charge, calculates if the vehicle is within range of a pre-set destination and points out latest information on available charging stations within the current driving range.
While Nissan’s new electric-vehicle platform is debuting on a Versa-based prototype, the all-electric vehicle scheduled to debut in 2010 will have a unique design and body.
