EM57 or EM61 Traction Motor

Sun Feb 04, 2018 11:53 pm

Hello everyone,
I have a 2017 Leaf SL, and would like to know which traction motor do I have? Is it EM57 or EM61? Is there any difference between them?

Thx!

Dave

Nevermind about this question. Found out with 2017 user manual that it is EM57. It is funny that 2010 ~ 2012 has EM61, and newer model has EM57. I would assume the newer the higher number it is.

:oops: You're right. It's in the '17 owner's manual.

I asked this question because it seems like the Nismo VCM is actually designed for 00 ~ 12 Leaf with EM61 motor. However, the general consensus is that the Nismo kit is for 13+, so this gets me really confused. The VCM clearly indicated ZE0 with EM61 motor.

Oh. I don't follow JDM mods.

Jeremy I believe made a typo at viewtopic.php?p=341832#p341832. The proper spelling should be Tim Gallagher. I met Tim at one of the places where he brought 2013 Leaf before they went on sale: https://wheels.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/0 ... 013-model/ and http://sfbayleafs.org/past-events/2013/ ... ea-reveal/.
