Nissan unveils ZEOD RC race car prototype slated for 24 Hours of Le Mans

Nissan ZEOD RC electrified race car

is definitely heading to the 24 Hrs of Le Mans 56, in 2014, with an electric car. The Nissan ZEOD RC, for Emission On Demand Racing is being designed for drive flexibility to use both electric battery packs, and petrol in different ways with reconfiguration choices. The ZEOD RC is not a battery electric race because obviously at this of EV drive trains no such car handle a 24 hours endurance

Instead Nissan see’s the RC as a test bed with which to the potential of their future LM P1 train.

Nissan’s goal is to in the future, to Le Mans P1 competition, and overall wins using an LM P1 drive train. The first is the ZEOD RC, with a 300 km/hr top slated for the 2014 Le Mans via Garage 56. That garage is for experimental technology vehicles as the 2013 hydrogen fuel entry, the GreenGT, which pulled out .

To aim for winning Le Mans overall an electrified drive train is a big We like that.

Since the RC isn’t a 100% battery car, then what is it? In a conference to unveil the car, a representative talked about how in ways regular road are ahead of race cars turbo-charging technology has been and applied to smaller engines, not for performance but for higher efficiency electric cars, like the Leaf, are on the market and slowly up sales.

Reading between the of his statement, the ZEOD RC will use a of a small turbo-charged fuel engine, coupled with an all drive train with a pack. The exact details not been announced yet, Nissan has not finalized the design. they’re at the beginning of the design and has a number of other ideas development that will be to test in the chassis according to Palmer, Executive Vice of Nissan Motor Corporation.

Ben Nissan’s Director of Motorsport positioned the ZEOD RC in contrast to the cars Audi and Toyota are in the FIA World Endurance Cup. those cars have beating the pants off the competition, and are hybrid technology, but with a system rather than a electric system. That Audi and Toyota are using a of regenerative braking that captures kinetic energy, bursts for acceleration out of corners.

The ZEOD RC instead is an electrified that will capture during braking etc, but do so rather than mechanically.

said We’re building an flexible platform with we’ll be able to try multiple options even during the multi-day test. It is about and gathering data to work out how we use to develop a competitive LM P1 program in the We will be working very with the ACO throughout the test to help develop where technology fits within the Le rules package.

They to be able to run laps at Le Mans than a Ferrari GT car, will be quite an achievement. means less than 4 a lap. There is no track for electric cars at Le Mans, so Nissan does with the RC will set the Le Mans electric car record.

The car shown at Le Mans is on the Nissan DeltaWing. It has a narrow end, and a wing-like shape the name). That car occupied 56 in the 2012 24 Hrs of Le Mans.

The electric part of the drive is to use similar components (but not components) as are used in the Nissan That means similar inverter and motor technology but up for the rigors of 300+ km/hr at Le

They aim to use the ZEOD RC as a test bed to these technologies, not just for a electrified LM P1 race car, but for to commercial electric cars to the public.

With the Nissan having sold over units world-wide, Nissan see’s themselves as a world in electric cars. The growth for sales of the Leaf is outstripping the years of Toyota Prius by a good margin.

The theory by Nissan management is that by the same technology to race they’ll drive more of electric drive train while using the race to accelerate technology development. We agree with this because that’s the exact I personally have for focusing on racing news.

Nissan has become a global in the development of zero emission technology, and the Nissan ZEOD RC allow us to further develop capabilities using the toughest race in the world as a mobile bed to test the potential of our planned LM P1 train, said Andy Executive Vice President and Committee member at Nissan Company Limited.

The Nissan RC is a natural progression that on from the development of the Nissan road car and the LEAF RC race car The technologies developed through the RC program will form of future innovations for Nissan cars.

Nissan is already a leader in the sale of all-electric and we’re eagerly awaiting the to showcase the lessons learnt the development of battery technology in the oldest, toughest and most profile endurance race.

The RC program is designed to develop technologies to evaluate how they be used for a future LM P1 class of Nissan at the Le Mans 24 Hour. are multiple options we are investigating. A Emission on Demand option the driver can switch between and petrol-powered drive is a future for road cars, so that be tested in addition to pure power and other new technologies we still have under

As no other manufacturer is using battery technology in endurance today, Nissan is innovating and this will provide us significant amounts of data and to evaluate potential powertrains for sportscar programs and allow us to as the leader in Zero Emissions on the road.

Developing a car like provides an incredibly challenging bed for what could be highly options for road cars of the Throughout the next twelve we will be testing multiple train options in an extensive program, Bowlby said.

We many options to consider and The test program is part of a term goal of developing a and a set of rules for this type of in partnership with the ACO that be best suited to competing at the level of this sport.

is a leader in electric vehicle for the road, now we want to take lessons learnt and utilize knowledge base in the development of the new car.

Our design team on the Nissan RC program has concentrated heavily on and aerodynamic efficiency that not only provide extreme but high levels of energy the goal for all global automakers.

A part of our work in the coming is to discuss with the ACO future for the ‘electrification’ of the Le Mans rules in the and work towards delivering technology. Garage 56 is a bold by the ACO to showcase Innovation and allow of untried components and systems for competition use. To this end are the most forward thinking in Motorsport today.
