  • Nissan’ New Plan for New Rides is here

Nissan is looking for new technology to use in its upcoming range of vehicles.

Nissan Motor Co. is going to introduce two new technologies to cater its new range of vehicles. Nissan is aiming to be a lead provider of electric vehicles and self-driving cars. The first technology will incorporate electric vehicles by making them cost efficient for the consumer. 

The second category of technology will belong to Nissan’s autonomous range. It will showcase a single-lane-self-driving steering feature, according to Automotive News

Both of these technologies will be introduced in Japan on March 17th, 2017. After that Nissan will introduce autonomous drive in U.S, Europe and China. 

It is said that Nissan’s signature car Leaf might be the one that will have both autonomous and electric features. There’s a lot of pondering to be done on the subject till now however speculation about the technology tend to be the one like this.

Nissan is going to do some innovative things in this new project. They are going to use a technology that is used in Nissan Leaf. The Nissan’s e-Power will use a small engine in order to generate electricity which will in turn charge the onboard battery. This battery will in turn provide energy to the engine letting the motors on the wheels turn them. 

They are also going to showcase the concept of compact car. This will be an electric vehicle which will be made specially to satisfy consumer’s demand to be fuel efficient and greater autonomy. This car will be using the new e-Power system.

The best thing about this vehicle is that when its battery runs low, its power will be delivered by its gasoline engine. The engine thus will give the car a better mileage and range. 

According to Nissan, this technology will be cheaper than fully electric vehicle. Its battery will be less costly then pure EV batteries.
