    Could Nissan’s 400HP 1.5L 3-Cylinder Hint at Sea-Doo’s Future?



    Why on earth are we publishing an announcement of Nissan’s new ZEOD RC Le Mans racecar? Trust us, it sounds a little weird to us too. But hear us out. This could seriously change how you look at Sea-Doo…

    Nissan designed its futuristic ZEOD RC Le Mans racecar to compete under electric power, but battery life only goes so far these days, so Nissan’s performance branch, NISMO developed a very capable turbocharged, direct-injected 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine that produces a staggering 400 horsepower.

    THANK YOU! That's what I'm talking about, guys. This amazing little A-bomb-in-a-box is proof that a three-cylinder (with a turbo) is plenty potent.

    One question didn't get answered, or addressed, in that video....

    How does the motor power the vehicle?

    Does it provide power to the wheels?

    OR does it power the generator, making electricity, to recharge the batteries that provide the thrust?

    Look at the Fisker Karma, which has a 2.0L Ecotec from GM. Its only purpose is to generate electricity to recharge the batteries. When the batteries get low, the motor comes on and runs at a constant RPM, no matter what speed the vehicle is going...Some generators require a lot of power to make electricity, and require a lot of HP to turn them. How do you think a locomotive works?

    Quite frankly, I don't care if it powers a mini fridge. It's the fact that a three-cylinder four-stroke can weigh as little as it does, produce the horsepower it does, and do so reliably and for prolonged periods at exceedingly high RPM.
