During an event called Nissan Futures 3.0 and held yesterday in Oslo, Norway, Japanese manufacturer Nissan has advanced its plans for the future in electric vehicles and has confirmed that there will be a sports version signed by Nismo of its pure electric, the Nissan Leaf. The ultimate goal of the model is to attract the attention of a younger audience.
At the moment it is a prototype called Nissan Leaf Nismo Concept that anticipates the final variant of production, more attractive and sporty than the conventional model. This concept will be officially presented on October 25th at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Nissan has not wanted to unveil any technical specification on this Leaf Nismo, although it has advanced that will have a more worked aerodynamics, a sportier court suspension, high performance tires and a new electronic management of the electric propeller to offer the maximum possible acceleration
In view of the images, the more sporty electric in the house will look more striking. The prototype advances a bitono finish, details in red color typical of Nismo, a set of rims to the height and an interior also of cut sport more, with red seams and a specific steering wheel. In addition, the Leaf of Nismo is expected to have more power and lose some kilo along the way.
Meanwhile, the third generation of the Nissan Leaf, presented a month ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show, looks quite different from the previous one, especially in the rear. However, the main thing is a battery of greater capacity that, therefore, increases its autonomy.
The battery of the Nissan Leaf 2018 is 40 kWh (10 kWh more than before) and the electric motor now offers 150 hp and 320 Nm, compared to just over 100 hp of the outgoing model. Nissan announces an NEDC cycle autonomy of 378 kilometers, but also promises an even more capable variant, with greater power and autonomy, that could resort to a battery of 60 kWh
