There is no point in doing that. It would have to be crippled down to going no more than 25 mph in almost all the markets thus making it near useless. (In a some places, it could be allowed to go 35 mph.)

35 would be plenty fast for that thing…

I does more than 50mph actually 🙂

Why should it be crippled down for the US? In Europe it is registered as quad. It runs around 50 Miles on a charge, and has a topspeed of 55 mph and is allowed on highways as well. In Japan it is sold as Nissan, which would make sense for the US as well, being seen as small brother of the Leaf
