Next to the recently presented 2012 GT-R, Nissan showcases the eSport concept in Geneva. The eSport is a rear-wheel drive electricv vehicle using two motors. The car’s graceful proportions allow the twin electric motors to be placed above the axis of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship position.
These motors independently control the left and right wheels, and so the torque is optimized to ensure vehicle stability and control as well as efficient power regeneration. The motors produce enough torque in an instant for it to reach a 100km/h in under five seconds.
An aluminium chassis has been built around the drive train, taking full advantage of the opportunities that Zero Emission electric propulsion provides. Unlike a conventional fuel tank, batteries do not get lighter as they provide energy, so the car’s weight distribution remains constant throughout a drive.
