> Promises an exciting fusion of the world’s best-selling electric car with the performance/sporty image of the NISMO road car series (Nissan’s motorsports and in-house tuning division)
> The Nissan LEAF NISMO will go on sale on 31 July in Japan
We actually didn’t see this coming, but Nissan will be rolling out its LEAF NISMO, which is based on the new Nissan LEAF that debuted in October 2017.
To sum it up, this NISMO iteration will feature goodies such as custom tuning for a more responsive acceleration, custom tyres and suspension for improved handling, and a sportier appearance.
We noticed that the LEAF NISMO uniquely features some intense body-work which improves down-force without compromising on the drag coefficient. It even gets a set of custom 18-inch aluminium wheels that minimize air resistance.
For the cabin, the NISMO treatment will include sporty red accents, a three-spoke steering wheel, gun metal finish, and carbon-fibre inserts.
