Contribute to the electrification of the mobility sector

Technology / Service Summary

Transportation is responsible for 21% of global CO2 emissions. Nidec will expand our motors to the various sectors and contribute to the decarbonization through the electrification of mobility.


To reduce CO2 emissions related to transportation, we promote electrification in the mobility sector. E-Axle is a traction unit for EVs that integrates a motor, inverter and gears into one product. A wide lineup is available to meet the various needs. We are also developing the X-in-1 motor that incorporates multiple technologies and serves as a high-efficiency motor.


We are focusing on the development business of traction motors and have been selected by the national project. We are developing next-generation traction motors with the aim of achieving cost down, zero magnet use, high efficiency, high power density, resource conservation and light weight. We will also promote the electrification of mobility like electric motorcycles and electric aircraft.


Nidec has developed a second generation E-Axle that is 19% smaller than the first generation, using our advanced technologies. The number of EV customers in China is expanding due to its light weight, high power output and space-saving features. And Nidec was the largest sahre in the Chinese market. This compact E-Axle contributes to resource conservation and reduces CO2 emissions(4-7%).
