Power and control in perfect harmony

The innovative platform also rewards drivers. Providing customers with the flexibility to choose the right package for their needs, the CMF-EV platform can accommodate multiple specifications of power units and drivetrains – including a single-motor offering and dual-motor e-4ORCE configuration.

e-4ORCE is Nissan’s most advanced all-wheel control technology. Through a series of precise motor and braking inputs, the innovative system strikes the perfect balance between powerful performance and unprecedented control – offering elevated driver confidence on a variety of road surfaces.

While delivering a dynamic but reassured driving experience behind the wheel, e-4ORCE also carefully minimises vehicle pitch under braking, optimising brake balance between the front and rear to provide a stable, smooth ride for driver and passengers.
