Make Stronger Products

The traction motor is the heart of the EV. Of course, it would be nice for an EV to be powerful: The driver could enjoy the EV way of acceleration, while enjoying the comfort of driving a high-rank one. However, power is always a trade-off with size and electricity consumption. The user wants the traction motor to be in its limited space, and generate required output without need for extra weight. To achieve this harsh demand, Nidec examines every single detail of its entire traction motors, to invest in optimum materials and revolutionary technologies. This is such a powerful force based on our ideas as a motor manufacturer.
