Currently in the final stages of development, Nissan’s e-4orce (pronounced e-force, in case you didn’t get it) is a new all-wheel control technology for its electric vehicles that delivers instant torque to all four wheels but also helps drivers better control the power.
The e-4orce system, which is built around twin electric motors, was first shown off at CES in Las Vegas in January 2020, where it was used on a Nissan Leaf+. The technology is said to offer more reaction to driver input and enable greater handling and comfort.
In this video, the system is used in a series of maneuvers, including handling and stability tests, where e-4orce distributes torque to the vehicle’s front and rear wheels to maximize tire friction (grip) according to road surface conditions and the vehicle’s situation.
e-4orce’s all-wheel-drive balance defaults to a 50/50 distribution, but it can also transfer up to 100% of power to either the front or rear wheels, and a mix in between, for various road and driving conditions. Deceleration force is optimally controlled at each of the four wheels, though a combination of regenerative braking and hydraulic braking, thereby improving turning performance in addition to deceleration.
The audit is a key tool to know the overall status and provide the analysis, the assessment, the advice, the suggestions and the actions to take in order to cut costs and increase the efficiency and efficacy of the fleet. We propose the following fleet management audit.
