Nissan Leaf Nismo RC Revealed - Great Looking Electric Racer!

The Nissan Leaf Nismo RC (Racing Competition) prototype wraps production Nissan Leaf components and technology in a ready-to-go-racing carbon fibre body.

Under the skin is the same lithium-ion battery pack and an AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. 0-62mph comes in 6.85 seconds and the top speed is 93mph. Under racing conditions, the battery has a running time of around 20 minutes.

Compared to the all-electric Leaf, that is now on sale at your local Nissan dealership, the Leaf Nismo RC is lower, longer, wider and has a shorter wheelbase.

“There’s a perception among some people that electric vehicles fall on the dull side of the automotive enthusiasm scale − which is certainly not the case with either the production Nissan LEAF or this electrifying Nissan LEAF NISMO RC,” added Tavares. “Nissan LEAF owners are fully embracing this new world of zero emission technology. We believe the same potential exists in the motorsports world as well, with Nissan proud to be first on the starting grid.”

The Leaf Nismo RC makes its world debut today at the New York International Auto Show.
