Because they started early, they are obviously more marketable and well-known than German hybrids. For example, the familiar Toyota THS and Honda i-MMD, and now Nissan hybrids will also enter China now.
sharing conference held by Nissan in Shanghai announced that the second-generation e-POWER technology has officially entered China, and the first model equipped with this technology will be launched within this year. It is said that Sylphy will be the first to carry it.
So far, the cumulative sales of models equipped with this technology have exceeded 500,000 in the Japanese market. It is an efficient and mature power model between HEV and EV.
This time, the second-generation e-POWER entered China. Compared with the first generation, its structure has not changed, but the volume of the inverter has been reduced by 40%, and the weight has been reduced by 33%. The high-efficiency low-vibration motor and torque have been updated. With an increase of 10%, the peak torque can reach 500 N·m.
In addition, the second-generation e-POWER hybrid has also been replaced with a more efficient engine. The overall thermal efficiency of this engine has reached 50% technically.
The biggest feature of e-POWER technology is that it is 100% oil-fired power generation and 100% full-time electric drive . Simply put, the electric motor is responsible for driving the vehicle, and the gasoline engine is responsible for powering the electric motor. Therefore, it is more like a set of “program-increasing” program.
But unlike the extended program system,
The second-generation e-POWE does not have a charging port and does not need to be charged. It is as convenient to use as a traditional gasoline car.
In addition, because the power battery pack has a capacity of only 1.5kWh, its small size and low weight indirectly ensure the fuel economy of the engine.
The result of this combination is that the driving is stable and absolutely quiet, comparable to trams, and fuel consumption is not high. According to statistics, the Nissan Note equipped with e-POWER technology consumes only 2.67L per 100 kilometers.
Of course, the shortcomings of e-POWER are also obvious,
That is, the power is not too strong, and economical benefits are its first choice.
At present, the e-POWER technology in the Japanese market is only suitable for small cars. For compact SUVs such as Qijun, there are obviously higher power requirements.
However, officials have stated that e-POWER technology has three different power combinations, which can be applied to larger or more sporty models.
