Nissan Leaf Nismo RC 2018 model Racing EV

Nissan wants to show the Leaf Nismo RC around the world during Formula E races and other events. Eight copies of the previous race Leaf were reportedly built.

The Nismo RC has powertrain components of the ordinary Leaf and has two electric motors that together deliver 240 kW (326 hp) and 640 Nm. This makes the car twice as powerful as the original Leaf RC from 2011. By using a lot of carbon and throwing everything overboard which is unnecessary for track use, the flattened Leaf only weighs 1,220 kg.

The sprint from 0 to 100 does not take more than 3.4 seconds.
