Abstract

At Nissan we have developed many different environmental technologies to date and launched sales of an electric vehicle (EV) in December 2010 that achieves zero carbon dioxide and zero exhaust emissions. Besides its outstanding environmental performance, this zero-emission EV also embodies new potentialities not found in conventional gasoline-engine vehicles. The responsiveness and controllability of the electrified powertrain (EV drive motor) combine to provide an unprecedented driving experience that transforms conventional thinking about automobiles.This paper presents an EV drive torque control system that takes advantage of this EV-unique performance to provide handling capabilities for driving ease that anyone can enjoy.
