Nissan Leaf Drive System (used)


Would you like to convert your old car using a modern Nissan Leaf Motor? 200-400v Input required. Includes our VCU and Accessory kit. This is a great system for the price! Approximately 80kw at higher voltages. Fairly compact in size, and a great solution for front or rear wheel drive with independent suspension. Custom mounting is required depending on your installation.

If you want to use the entire drivetrain for a boat, you can modify the transmission and use a single output shaft at ~1200 rpm.  

Crating fees and freight fees apply if being shipped. Please call for an estimate and system availability. Approx 280 pounds. Version options are 2013 or newer (Gen2) or 2011/12 (Gen1 - has modular inverter).
