Nissan has unveiled the prototype test Leaf e+, in the structure of the power plant which consisted of two electric motors. One mounted on the front axle, the second – on the back, thus giving the drive to all four wheels. This technology will be applied to the electric cars of new generation.
The total output of the two electric motors is around 308 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque. The system allows the independently controlled braking of each of the four wheels, improving the turning torque produced by each tire. In addition, regenerative braking is now possible not only front but also rear wheels, which allowed to negate the “pecks” of the vehicle in the longitudinal plane. When accelerating, especially on poor road surfaces, the system maintains an optimal mode to minimize torque ripple.
Despite the fact that for the test mule – exterior Leaf of the current generation with the new units, the design of the car still has undergone some changes. For example, arch has been expanded, set of rally wheels, and the center of the instrument panel came 12.3-inch screen. It displays detailed information about the car, including on the work control system all-wheel drive.
Nissan cites the dimensions of the prototype test: the length is 4480 mm, width – 1830 mm, height – 1540 mm and wheelbase of 2,700 millimeters. Dimension of front tyres – 215/55R17 and the rear is 235/50R17.

A day earlier at the Tokyo motor show the company presented a concept electric crossover Ariya, equipped with semi-automatic driving ProPILOT 2.0 functions of the movement “no hands.” According to unofficial information, the serial version of the show car might appear in 2021.
What type of drive, in your opinion, the best for electric cars?
