When will the Nissan Leaf NISMO go into production?

Auto shows all over the world give automakers a great opportunity to show everyone what they have in the pipeline. The 45th Tokyo Motor Show is fast approaching on the horizon. The huge event will be happening October 27 through November 5, and Nissan will be there to show what it has to offer. What will Nissan have on display at the Tokyo Motor Show? All in all, the automaker plans to have 13 vehicles shown, but one model in particular is going to raise eyebrows for electric vehicle drivers here in the United States. The automaker is set to formally introduce the Nissan Leaf NISMO to the masses at this auto show, and anticipation is building, with rumors of production happening soon. When will the Nissan Lead NISMO go into production? Read ahead for what we have heard so far. 

Have you seen that the Midnight Edition lineup is expanding to include the pickup trucks?

Leaf NISMO Concept takes center stage at the Tokyo Motor Show

As we told you earlier, the 2018 Leaf is a fresh redesign of the popular electric car. It offers the newest version of Nissan’s ProPILOT single-lane autonomous driving technology, as well as ProPILOT Park. It’s exciting enough as it is, but the NISMO Concept wants to take the Leaf to a whole new level of sportiness.

The aerodynamics on the Leaf NISMO are even sharper, and the vehicle offers a sport-tuned drive that lies at the heart of every NISMO model in Nissan’s lineup. When looking at the few pictures we have seen so far, you can tell that it fits right in with the rest of the NISMO lineup. If there is anyone that can make an electric vehicle even more fun to drive by giving it a sporty suspension and high-performance features, it is Nissan. 

When will we see it?

The Leaf NISMO is still just a concept at this point, but the chatter in the automotive world suggests it could go into production by the end of this decade, which is closer than you may realize. We will know more about this vehicle when it is formally revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, so stay tuned to the Nissan of Victoria blog for more updates as they are available.
