This isn’t the blacked out race car made from carbon fiber and spaceframe tubing, but the Japanese automaker’s attempt to turn the LEAF into a sportier EV with the help of the Nismo in-house tuning division.
It actually sound like a bad idea, since all of the electric hatches fans post comments about how long they go between charges and how sensible it is, but who knows, the idea of a fast LEAF might catch on.

The cosmetic makeover comprises of a lowered suspension, 18-inch wheels, an aero bumper, with fresh grille and some side skirts.

“Nissan LEAF has shown that zero emission mobility is no longer a dream but a reality. The Nismo Concept not only proves the hidden potential of Nissan LEAF but also adds even more excitement and energy to LEAF, delivering a guilt-free yet exhilarating driving experience that can be enjoyed by every car enthusiast,” said Hideaki Watanabe, Corporate Vice President of Nissan.
