Sports version of the Nissan Leaf the second generation will prepare a tuning division of the Japanese brand. In an interview with Autocar said the head of the design Department of Nissan Alfonso Albaisa.
According to him, “quick version” by Atelier Nismo will help electrojets to win a younger audience. Albaisa believes that for the previous model it was impossible. Top Manager hinted that the Leaf 1 can use more popular (currently sold about 300 thousand cars), if not for his “boring” exterior.
“Design of the previous Leaf was not popular among most people, so appearance could not help sales. The new car is lower, wider and sports – from the point of view of design, it will make the machine more attractive in the market,” said Albaisa.
Development of a sports kit for the new Nissan Nismo Leaf 2 – no problem, I’m sure the creative Director of the brand. This practice is not new to Nissan because it offers “treatment” for several Nismo models.
Hot version of the new Nissan Leaf, which may receive the name prefix E-Plus should appear in 2019.
In addition to external improvements and increased productivity it will have a battery with a larger capacity and more powerful engine.
