Nissan is elevating the performance capability of electric vehicles with its brand new twin-motor all-wheel-control technology called e-4ORCE. The technology’s goal is to provide instant torque to all four wheels thereby delivering balanced, predictable power and handling that is on par with many premium sports cars.

The “e” in the name represents Nissan’s technologies which are enabled by a 100% electric motor drive system. “4ORCE,” which is pronounced “force,” evokes physical power and energy with “4” standing for the all-wheel control driving capability.

“The e-4ORCE twin-motor all-wheel control technology offers precise handling and stability, which gives drivers greater confidence and even more excitement than ever before,” said Takao Asami, Nissan’s senior vice president of research and advanced engineering. “This technology enables excellent cornering performance and traction on slippery surfaces and comfortable ride for all passengers.”

The technology itself was born from lessons that had been learned in the development of the Nissan GT-R's ATTESA E-TS torque split system, as well as with the Nissan Patrol's intelligent 4X4 system. Engineers developed the e-4ORCE technology to specifically manage electric vehicle power output and braking performance to be smooth and stable.

The e-4ORCE’s technology’s ability to provide unparalleled ride comfort is the result being able to minimize vehicle pitch and dive. This is accomplished by employing regenerative braking from both front and rear motors, therefore making city stop-and-go traffic less jostling. Similarly, on rough, bumpy roads and when accelerating, motor control is optimized to maintain ride comfort by minimizing irregular movement.

e-4ORCE also has the goal to increase driver confidence by faithfully tracing the driver's intended line thanks to ultra-high-precision motor and brake control. With the confidence to handle such a variety of road surfaces, even for novice drivers on slippery surfaces, driving becomes more enjoyable.
