Nissan Leaf Nismo headed for production, spec-race series canned?
Nismo chief Shoichi Miyatani has reportedly confirmed to Autocar that the zippier-looking electric Nissan will head down the assembly line in Japan this summer. But instead of a world-wide launch, the five-door will be sold only in the automaker's domestic market until consumer reaction is gauged. Even then, such low volumes will hardly justify expanding to other markets, Miyatani added.
In other news, it appears that the Leaf RC race car program – hinted as a one-make race series – is probably not going to happen.
