When one says “electric vehicle”, the first thing that comes to most of our minds are things like clean technology, charging infrastructure, and driving range.
However, many EVs out there today are also able to deliver an exciting driving experience, such as the Nissan Leaf here.
To demonstrate the capabilities of the car, Nissan recently challenged a professional stunt driver to drift the Nissan Leaf, which went better than expected.
The Nissan Leaf demonstrated with ease its ability to produce both maximum torque and force, while delivering virtually silent donuts and burnouts.
Throughout the test, the Nissan Leaf’s emissions remained at zero - a number symbolized by the vehicle’s donut tread marks.
The world’s best-selling EV thereby debunked outdated perceptions that electric vehicles are nothing but large golf carts.
As such, exhilarating performance aside, this indoor drift experiment provided yet another reason for us to smile at the prospect of future electric mobility.
