Tokyo Motor Show: Nismo tweaks the new Leaf

Nissan revealed a concept version of a Leaf Nismo performance EV at Tokyo.

The Leaf Nismo has better aerodynamics and produces more downforce than the standard Leaf. The car has an exterior bodykit, upgraded alloy wheels, sports suspension and Nismo badging. The interior is black with red accents.

Nissan hasn’t confirmed whether it will build the Leaf Nismo, although the firm’s head of sales and marketing, Daniele Schillaci, said it does have plans to expand the reach of its performance sub-brand in Europe.
