Nidec’s e-axle supplied to Geely’s Zeekr brand

Nidec Corporation has declared that Ni200Ex, the company’s 200kW, e-axle traction motor program, is equipped to the ZEEKR 001, an electric motor vehicle just released by Geely Auto Team, beneath its premium brand name, “Zeekr.”

Designed based mostly on the SEA (Sustainable Practical experience Architecture), which is the EV system made by Geely Auto Group’s ZEEKR Smart Technological know-how, ZEEKR 001 is described as a premium EV of the capturing brake phase (four,970mm in duration x 1,999mm in width x 1,560mm in peak).

The client can opt for either a single-motor or a twin-motor style (with a motor put in in the vehicle’s front and the rear, respectively). In the latter’s scenario, the optimum output is 400kW, with a optimum torque of 768Nm, a -100km/h dash of three.eight seconds, and a optimum pace of 200km/h. With an 86kWh or a 100kWh battery put in, ZEEKR 001 can travel up to 712km (on the NEDC method), when its battery can accommodate rapid charging of up to 360kW. The motor vehicle can travel 120km soon after a 5-minute battery charging.

The sale of this motor vehicle in China is slated for 2021, when its world-wide sale is set to start off in 2022.

Ni200Ex, Nidec’s E-Axle to be put in in ZEEKR 001, is the 3rd model in the Company’s E-Axle series, and the motor vehicle is the initially one particular to adopt the traction motor program. Nevertheless the company, based mostly on its E-Axle lineup approach, was initially planning to start off mass-making Ni200Ex in 2023, it accelerated the approach drastically in time for ZEEKR 001’s market start, to initiate the mass production in August of 2021.

Made out of Ni150Ex’s simple structure, Ni200Ex is described by Nidec as a compact unit that adopts a mild, skinny, shorter, and modest motor’s structure that is based mostly on the magnetic circuit design and style-derived knowhow and exceptional motor oil-cooling structure. They are both of those cultivated in the progress of modest precision motors. Also, with an optimized design and style that employs 2nd-era inverters and other elements, Ni200Ex contributes drastically to enhancing ZEEKR 001’s power, energy usage, and noise & vibration performances, and lessening the vehicle’s fat, Nidec claims.
