The LEAF NISMO is an electric version of Nissan’s NISMO series
Nissan has announced that its latest EV, the LEAF NISMO, will go on sale on July 31 in Japan.
The Nissan LEAF NISMO features a custom tuning computer for more responsive acceleration, custom tires and suspension for improved handling and ride comfort, and stylish exterior and interior design.
The model is based on the new Nissan LEAF, which debuted in October 2017. The new LEAF offers the acceleration and environmental performance of a 100% electric powertrain, a dynamic design, and advanced technologies such as e-Pedal and the ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park autonomous driving features.
The Nissan LEAF NISMO’s dedicated 18-inch high-grip tires and custom suspension system provide a comfortable ride and stable handling.
Its custom-tuned electric power steering and Intelligent Trace Control (cornering stabilisation system) provide high stability and lane-tracing abilities.
The Nissan LEAF NISMO features the characteristic layered double wings of the NISMO road car series, improving downforce without compromising drag coefficient.
Signalling the high-performance driving provided by its low centre of gravity, the exterior also includes custom 18-inch aluminium wheels that minimise air resistance.
The new Nissan LEAF is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.
The LEAF won the 2018 World Green Car award at the New York International Auto Show and has received 5-star safety ratings from both the Japan New Car Assessment Programme and the European New Car Assessment Programme.
Nissan aims to sell 1 million electrified vehicles per year, including the new Nissan LEAF, globally by fiscal year 2022.
