Recently, Nissan has presented X-in-1, the new approach to the development of electrified powertrains to make Nissan motors 100% electric and e-Power more competitive due to the sharing and modularity of their primary components. The main advantages? More manufacturing efficiency, possibility of using the same production line, lighter and less cumbersome motors and reduction of rare earths to 1% of the weight.
With X-in-1, within 2026 development and manufacturing costs will be decreased by 30% compared to 2019 and the cost of Nissan e-Power models will be equal to the cost of models with standard thermal motor. Besides, the adoption of solid-state batteries starting from 2028 – which will cost the half and will be charged in one third of the time versus current batteries – will grant a further cutting edge to Nissan.
Nissan has implemented a 100% electric powertrain prototype called 3-in-1, consisting of 3 components: motor, inverter and reducer, and a prototype of e-Power called 5-in-1, composed by 5 components: motor, inverter, reducer, generator and multiplier.
«Due to the expertise and the know-how gained in over one decade in the development and production of electrification technologies, we will go on offering innovative high-quality products to our customers, favouring the diffusion of the electric mobility and of e-Power models», stated Toshihiro Hirai, Senior Vice President, manager of the engineering development of electric powertrains and of EV.
With Ambition 2030, Nissan is going to release 27 new electrified models, including 19 new full-electric vehicles, by 2030.
