- With its dual motor and responsive acceleration and braking, e-4ORCE provides a powerful and smooth driving experience that is optimised for all seasons
- Nissan’s e-4ORCE technology delivers lightning-fast response times, surpassing the time of some nature’s most reactive creatures
Mississauga, Ontario – With a lightning-fast response time of just 0.0001 seconds, Nissan’s unique e-4ORCE technology is faster than the blink of an eye. Its unmatched precision and lightning-fast reaction make e-4ORCE an ideal choice for those seeking a powerful and smooth driving experience this Spring.
An ultra-high-precision control system and dual motor provide responsive acceleration and braking, offering drivers unparalleled control on the road. What’s more, since e-4ORCE is designed to work exclusively with electrified powertrains, it also highlights Nissan’s commitment to electrification and sustainable mobility.
The e-4ORCE system featured in the Nissan ARIYA adds on precise control and brake torque-vectoring capabilities. The vehicle’s on-road poise is the balanced distribution of power from the twin motor system, which can be adjusted in 1/10,000th of a second, considerably faster than traditional mechanical all-wheel drive systems.
The need for such a quick reacting system reflects the continuously changing levels of traction under each wheel as the tyres pass over the road which may be wet, muddy, icy, snowy or even oily. When steering, acceleration or braking forces are taken into account in those changing conditions, Nissan’s advanced e-4ORCE system offers outstanding reassurance as it works in the background to adjust the distribution of power to each wheel without any of the vehicle’s occupants noticing.
The secret to the lightning-fast response from e-4ORCE is that the power is sent to the wheels from an electric motor, so the response is instantaneous. A traditional mechanical all-wheel drive system requires longer to adjust the distribution of power via a clutch or mechanical coupling, so occasionally it’s possible to feel a moment of instability in challenging conditions before the mechanical system has had time to react. With e-4ORCE this feeling is eliminated.
Whether it’s rain, sleet, or snow, e-4ORCE can quickly adapt to changing road conditions and provide drivers with the ultimate driving experience. In a newly released video, Nissan showcases the power and smoothness that e-4ORCE technology offers, illustrating how e-4ORCE matches and even surpasses the reaction times of nature’s fastest creatures – making it the perfect technology for all seasons.
Watch the video below to see how it fares against carnivorous Venus flytraps, frogs, hummingbirds, and even world-class athletes.
As spring blooms, Nissan’s e-4ORCE technology stands ready to deliver an exhilarating and effortless driving experience. Its lightning-fast response time allows drivers to feel confident and in control, ready to react to any situation that arises. With e-4ORCE, drivers can experience unparalleled control on the road, regardless of the conditions.
