|Two-seater Compact EV Equipped with NTN's In-Wheel Motor(see here for details)
This is a two-seater EV equipped with the “In-wheel Motor System for Compact EVs.” The in-wheel motor system features a motor mounted directly within the wheel, which allows more effective use of free space and greater design flexibility for vehicles. EVs are expected to play a major role in local communities as they are ideal for driving short distances, including shopping and commuting, and are easy to get in and out of, which means that are suited to users of advanced age. NTN has worked with the “Fujinokuni EV, PHV Town Concept” initiative organized by Shizuoka Prefecture and started demonstration tests of this compact EV.
