Nissan LEAF Nismo Acceleration Test – Video
The Nissan LEAF Nismo is a performance version of the LEAF – which unfortunately is only available in Japan at the moment.
The Nismo package brings mostly a new, more aggressive aero package (that we kinda like), but also a reprogrammed/sport tuned VCM (Vehicle Control Module).
Cost for a full conversion? About $10,000
The question is, “Is the carbon fibred, skirted-up, chipped Nismo LEAF any faster?” Watch the video and find out. Our own test of the ‘standard’ US-spec LEAF returned a time of 10.4 seconds to 60 mph (96.5 kmh).
Hat tip to offib!
