Would you be interested in a Nissan LEAF Nismo?

According to the news release, the improvements made to the car will be more than skin-deep. Perhaps the most pertinent piece of information to share is that the car will have a revised/tuned computer which will allow for more responsive acceleration but since the battery and electric motor are not listed as altered, we don’t think it’ll be any quicker.

The real good news is that the LEAF Nismo gets specific 18” wheels shod with Continental ContiSportContact tires, upgraded dampers, steering, and driving aids including Trace Control (corner stabilization system using braking) and more.

Aesthetically, the Nissan LEAF Nismo gains unique bumpers, skirts and LED lights. In the cabin, look for alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, various other trim changes including for the seats and door cards and of course, NISMO emblems everywhere.

The car will be launched in Japan at the end of the month but there’s nothing confirmed for North America. Odds are, however, that we’ll get it.
