With the LEAF Nismo Nissan is trying its hand at making a sort of sporty EV, introduce a bit of drama to the car’s dull mix of slowness and lack of style.

It sounds like overkill, seeing as the typical LEAF buyers are Eco-minded green peas who don’t even like sportiness. But that didn’t stop Nismo from trying and they came up with this car you see here.

The styling package with its front aero bumper, rear under protector, rear diffuser, extended side sills and 18-inch alloy wheels does its fair bit to enhance the looks. What’s slightly funny is when Nissan boasts that it also “increases downforce for road hugging performance”. The car has a top speed of 90mph, you’re not going to need downforce mate!

It would be more relevant if Nissan took its time and found out a way to solve the main issue with this car, which is of course long charging time.

“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, Nissan Motor Company and head of the company’s electric vehicle business unit.
