Set to debut at the Fuji International Speedway alongside Nissan's Formula E racer as part of the annual Nismo Festival, the Leaf Nismo RC uses the same high-capacity lithium-ion battery and inverters as the regular Leaf.
The Nissan Juke Nismo has finally been confirmed as a starter in Australia, with the company's local arm announcing the sportier SUV's launch through a media invite.
Scheduled to launch in October according to the press invitation, the Juke Nismo adds a range of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades to Nissan's littlest crossover, first launched in Europe six years ago.
Nissan has unveiled the latest GT3-ready version of its GT-R – the GT-R Nismo GT3 – blending revised driving dynamics with creature comforts like air-conditioning.
Although it looks like the previous GT3, launched in 2015, Nissan has left no stone unturned in search of more speed. The engine has been mounted 150mm further back in the chassis than before, along with a revised suspension tune, new cross members and a fresh dry sump for the engine.
