In line with the commitment to offer innovative technologies that enhance the driving experience, Nissan developed the e-4ORCE system, which is Nissan’s exclusive electrified all-wheel drive technology. e-4ORCE offers a smooth, controlled ride and superior driving feel, safety on all surfaces and comfort for all passengers.
Why e-4ORCE? The “e” stands for Nissan’s 100% electric powertrain management. “4ORCE” refers to vehicle power and four-wheel control. This technology marks a breakthrough on Nissan’s electrification path towards a cleaner, safer and more inclusive world.
e-4ORCE is the Nissan’s advanced two-motor all-wheel drive system designed for electrified and fully electric powertrains.
This Nissan technology is based on three main areas: electric motor control, 4WD control and chassis control.
e-4ORCE has been tested in extreme conditions around the world and has proven its ability to improve performance and safety in any type of situation.
What benefits does Nissan e-4ORCE bring? Improves traction and stability on any type of road and in any weather condition. Provides increased throttle responsiveness and increased braking ability. Increases the feeling of control behind the wheel and offers a safer drive. It offers a smoother and more comfortable driving experience, reducing vibrations and unwanted vehicle movements.
Powerful and smooth. The innovative e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system was conceived for use with Nissan’s pure electric powertrains or with its pioneering e-POWER system. In both cases, the wheels are driven purely by electric motors powered by the battery.
Superior control and intuitive handling. With the e-4ORCE system activated, drivers easily follow the intended curve line with minimal steering correction, allowing them to feel the power of the electric vehicle and enjoy the electrified driving experience.
e-4ORCE technology provides continuous balanced chassis control line drawing and steering precision to anticipate driver behavior and compensate for common responses like understeer, while keeping the cabin level for a more enjoyable in-car experience.
Confidence in all surface conditions. With e-4ORCE, torque is distributed back and forth to maximize tire grip based on ground surface conditions and vehicle situation, while braking is individually controlled for each of the four wheels.
Thanks to this precise control of the two-motor system and braking torque vectoring capabilities, the vehicle maintains the correct course whether the road is wet, slippery, or covered with snow. The key is the balanced distribution of power from the dual-motor system, which can be adjusted to 1/10,000 of a second, considerably faster than traditional mechanical all-wheel drive systems.
An added benefit of e-4ORCE for all passengers is a comfortable ride with minimal longitudinal “squat” of the body on deceleration thanks to strong regenerative braking. pitching suppressed by controlling the regenerative balance between the front and rear axles. And the dual motor system means a higher level of regenerative energy capture than a single motor system, optimizing vehicle efficiency at every opportunity.
