The racing version of Nissan’s electric vehicle, the Leaf, lapped the Sodegaura Forest Raceway,Japan during a test run yesterday. In this four minute video, the driver puts the Nissan Leaf Nismo RC through its paces and at some points can barely keep it on the track.
The Nismo RC features a full carbon fiber body and thee-door layout, and is extremely aerodynamic. This car is entirely electric, creating zero-emissions, and only has one gear as you will see in the video.
The Nissan Leaf Nismo RC will perform two demonstrations, Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon at the Le Mans Vers Le Futur, in celebration of the 79th anniversary of the event (June 11-12).
It will be interesting to see how electronic vehicles like the Nismo RC shape the world of motorsports while attaining zero-emissions.
