Sure, the Nissan LEAF NISMO RC may not compare with the new Tesla Roadster, but if it were priced around the Model 3 Performance, many who don’t need four seats would probably opt for this electric racer. Power comes from an electric twin-motor setup that sends 322 HP and 472 lb-ft (640 Nm) of torque to the AWD system, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in a mere 3.4 seconds.

Unlike the production Nissan Leaf, this prototype uses a carbon fiber tub to keep the weight to just 2,690-pounds. The AWD system sends torque to the grippiest tire for extreme cornering performance. For comparison, the long-range Leaf E+ features a 62 kWh battery, paired with a 217 HP electric motor and is good for 226 miles on a full charge.

For Nissan, the ‘E’ in ‘EV’ also stands for ‘Exciting’. Putting this philosophy front and center, 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,” said Michael Carcamo, Nissan Global Motorsport Director.
