Automotive Motor & Electric Control Business

Nidec: The World’s Leading Manufacturer of Main Automotive Components that control the key functions of automobiles: “running,” “turning,” and “stopping”

During recent years, there has been a trend of vehicles becoming increasingly fuel-efficient and highly value-added, with more than 100 motors installed in each automobile.

The Nidec Group designs, develops, and produces brushed and brushless DC motors that ensure safe and comfortable driving, as well as the “E-Axle,” a system that integrates motors, gears, and inverters to drive an electric vehicle (EV).
