Exciting European debut of the Electric Nissan LEAF NISMO RC racing car at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain.
The all-wheel-drive LEAF NISMO RC boasts more than double the maximum power and torque output of its predecessor, which was based on the first-generation LEAF and revealed in 2011. Delivering 322 HP and 640 Nm of instantly available torque, the LEAF NISMO RC offers lightning-quick acceleration, achieving the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.4 seconds.
The creation of the latest LEAF NISMO RC is not just for show; it acts as a testbed for future technological evolution and showcases the limitless potential of Nissan electric vehicles. It explores what can be achieved with an all-electric twin-motor and all-wheel-drive drivetrain, expressing Nissan’s dedication to continually evolve and improve its EV models for drivers worldwide.
The LEAF NISMO RC clearly shares its advanced technology with the LEAF road car – the world’s most popular EV with 450,000 sold since 2010, and touches down in Europe for the first time at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain.
Nissan’s experience as a pioneer in electric vehicles for the road, combined with NISMO’s 60-plus years of motorsport innovation, led to the conception of a unique car – said Michael Carcamo, Nissan Global Motorsport Director.
For Nissan, the ‘E’ in ‘EV’ also stands for ‘Exciting’. Putting this philosophy front and centre, we created the LEAF NISMO RC. It amplifies the fun-to-drive aspect of electric mobility, raising the thrills offered by EVs to a new level – Michael added.
