EN­TER THE SPORTY LEAF

The Nis­san LEAF NISMO Con­cept car will de­but at this year’s Tokyo Mo­tor Show. The NISMO Con­cept ver­sion of the new LEAF has a sporty new ex­te­rior de­signed by NISMO. The ap­pli­ca­tion of NISMO rac­ing tech­nol­ogy to the car’s body re­sults in en­hanced aero­dy­namic per­for­mance and less lift, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing the LEAF’s ex­cel­lent drag co­ef­fi­cient. The black in­te­rior fea­tures NISMO’s sig­na­ture red ac­cents, cre­at­ing an ex­cit­ing, high-per­for­mance feel. On the road, the LEAF NISMO Con­cept of­fers an ex­cit­ing drive, thanks to a sport-tuned sus­pen­sion and high­per­for­mance tires, not to men­tion a cus­tom-tuned com­puter that de­liv­ers in­stant ac­cel­er­a­tion at all speeds. The LEAF NISMO Con­cept com­bines the en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly char­ac­ter of an elec­tric car with the ex­cit­ing driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that’s al­ways been a hall­mark of the NISMO brand.
