USA: 2013 Nissan Leaf Electric Motor Production Starts In TN

U.S. production of the 2013 Nissan Leaf moved one step closer to reality earlier this week, when Nissan started eMotor production trials at its factility in Decherd, Tennessee.

Located about 70 miles from Smyrna, where Nissan will start official U.S. production of the 2013 Leaf electric car, the motor production line–and its staff–are going through final production test runs before the plant commences official motor manufacturing later this year.

Currently made in Japan, the Leaf’s electric motor contains around one mile of copper wiring, and takes Nissan longer to assemble than a conventional gasoline engine.

In part, that’s because correctly building an electric motor is a complicated process.
