At the 2011 New York Auto Show next week, Nissan will debut a motorsport version of the Nissan Leaf. Known as the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC (Racing Competition), the racing model lacks of rear door, a rear seat, trunk, audio system, navigation, carpeting and other amenities but still keeps its 100 percent zero-emission advanced lithium-ion battery design.
“There’s a perception among some people that electric vehicles fall on the dull side of the automotive enthusiasm scale – which is certainly not the case with either the production Nissan LEAF or this electrifying Nissan LEAF NISMO RC,” added Tavares. “Nissan LEAF owners are fully embracing this new world of zero emission technology. We believe the same potential exists in the motorsports world as well, with Nissan proud to be first on the starting grid.”

Power for the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC comes from a lithium-ion battery composed of 48 compact modules and a high-response 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107-hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. 80 percent charge can be reached in 30 minutes using a quick charging port (just like the regular Leaf). 0 to 62 mph comes in 6.85 seconds with a top speed of 93 mph.
How long will it drive for before it runs out of power on the track? Nissan says that the Leaf NISMO RC is projected to have a running time of around 20 minutes under racing conditions.
We’ll bring you live images and more details from the 2011 New York Auto Show next week. Stay tuned.
