Nissan's latest version of the electric race vehicle has more than double the maximum power and torque output of its predecessor. The model is equipped with advanced battery technology and drivetrain components from the Nissan LEAF.

With dual electric motors, all-wheel drive and an aggressive, restyled body shape, the purpose-built auto demonstrates how Nissan's electric vehicle technology can deliver exciting yet quiet, zero-emission power-a key component of the company's Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision.

And because the motors power both axles, there's all-wheel drive for the first time, with real torque vectoring to provide the optimum amount of torque to each wheel.

The lightweight chassis only weighs 1,220 kg, which helps the Leaf RC reach 100 km/h from zero in just 3.4 seconds; Nissan says that's 50 per cent quicker than the previous model, which was introduced in 2011. As opposed to the road auto, the Nismo RC uses a carbon fiber monocoque with an integrated roll cage for rigidity and lightness, giving the vehicle a weight of just 2,690 pounds (1,220 kilograms). It also has a lot more relevance now that Nissan is participating in Formula E.
