Ahead First Ever African Formula E Race : Nissan Launches e-POWER and e-4ORCE Technologies…Also Watch Video

Nissan has announced the launch of its innovative e-POWER and e-4ORCE technologies in Africa, during first ever all-electric Formula E race event in South Africa. 

e-POWER is Nissan’s unique 100% electric motor driven system that offers the responsive and effortless driving experience of an all-electric car, without the need to recharge.

e-4ORCE is an all-wheel-drive system designed to work exclusively with Nissan’s electrified powertrains, delivering power, comfort, and control in all conditions. For Nissan, these technologies are an essential part of the practical transition for Africa from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) to Electric Vehicles (EVs).

The launch forms part of a series of events in the lead up to the historic ABB FIA

Formula E World Championship in Cape Town and introduced attendees to ePOWER and e-4ORCE technologies through a Qashqai and X-Trail driving experience at Killarney International Raceway in Milnerton, Cape Town.

Nissan’s e-POWER combines modern EV technology with an efficient petrol engine to charge the lightweight, lithium-ion battery pack when necessary. The electric motor delivers power directly to the wheels using energy stored in the battery pack, while the petrol engine is used for charging the battery pack or powering the electric motor.

A gateway to EVs

“e-POWER is a gateway technology for customers who aren’t yet ready to make the step to full EV. The technology helps bring more people closer to EV ownership and is a significant step toward our ambitions for an electrified future in support of our sustainability goals,” said Stefan Haasbroek, Nissan Africa, Chief Marketing Management Director.

e-POWER technology is another step in delivering Ambition 2030, the company’s long-term vision for empowering mobility and beyond. Nissan is on a mission to create a cleaner, safer and more inclusive world for everyone and this technology is a proof point for the strides towards an electrified future with zero compromises on excitement.

“Customers are at the heart of our electrification strategy at Nissan. As such, we understand the current barriers to electrification in Africa especially regarding infrastructure and range anxiety, and e-POWER offers a solution to that. Beyond the introduction of technologies like e-POWER, Nissan collaborates with the different stakeholders across the continent at different levels in building policy frameworks to support a future of electric mobility for Africa,” added Whitfield.
