Nissan’s e-POWER technology presents a new way to drive

Drive like an electric vehicle — powerful, smooth, and quiet — without the need for external charging!



Following the success of Nissan’s electric vehicle (EV) technology through the Nissan LEAF, the company brings e-POWER.

It’s a 100 percent electric motor-driven system, aiming to deliver an EV-like drive without needing external charging, potentially opening the gateway to full EV ownership.

Nissan’s proof of innovation in the field of electrification

With e-POWER, the wheels are completely powered by the electric motor. The electricity for propulsion is generated by a highly-efficient gasoline engine, operating primarily to charge the high-performance lithium-ion battery pack.

The system also provides excellent fuel efficiency due to the fact that the gasoline engine is set to run at an optimal speed, operating only when the battery needs to charge.

Moreover, e-POWER delivers powerful acceleration, and a smoother one, thanks to its precise electric motor control at 1/10,000 per second.

A different kind of control

The technology also provides a new level of control. With the e-Pedal Step feature, drivers can accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal. The feature makes driving convenient in stop-and-go traffic and speeding through highways.

Furthermore, the feature is high on making the system fuel-efficient. The e-Pedal Step has regenerative braking, which generates electricity even with a slight deceleration.

Quiet, versatile system

The e-POWER system prides itself on quieter trips as compared to a traditional gasoline-powered car since it’s powered by a battery pack. It’s dedicated to keeping things quiet by monitoring the wheels to assess road roughness and activating the onboard engine when road noise increases. Thus, charging the battery without disrupting the cabin.

Additionally, e-POWER takes pride in being a versatile system, providing three driving modes. First is Sport Mode (S Mode), which prioritizes the motorist’s driving style while taking advantage of regenerative braking. Next is ECO Mode, which conserves battery by balancing acceleration smoothness and regenerative braking. Last is Standard Mode, which highlights acceleration with modest regenerative braking.

A revolutionary technology

Nissan’s e-POWER technology combines the efficiency of the Japanese car maker’s gasoline engines and the driving dynamics of an electric vehicle like the LEAF. It revolutionized the existing technology by further reducing the weight of the components, developing more responsive motor control methods, and optimizing overall energy management.

Nissan is moving towards its vision of bringing the future of mobility closer and making it more accessible to Filipinos. And it starts with the introduction of this revolutionary technology into the Philippine archipelago.
