As if the Nissan Leaf wasn’t garnering enough media attention [2], Nissan just announced that they will be debuting nine new models at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon [3] in January — including a stunning new Nissan concept car [4]. According to Nissan, the Leaf Aero Style Concept “expresses an image of futuristic sport EV driving”.

Nissan’s two freshest offerings, the Leaf [5] and the Juke [6], are due to receive added doses of sportiness, though apparently only in terms of appearance — no details have been released on the vehicles’ technical specs. The Leaf boasts an impressive new body kit, while the Juke wears dealer-installed parts designed for Europe and North America. Dubbed the “Juke Sporty Package”, the show car includes things like chrome-trimmed accessories and 17-inch alloy wheels. According to Nissan, the Nissan Leaf Aero Style [4] is “equipped with an aero body kit that accentuates Nissan LEAF’s distinctive silhouette and character lines”.

The Japanese car manufacturer will also unveil the Nissan Elgrand (a.ka. The Quest) [4] and new versions of the March, the Fairlady Z and the GT-R. We can’t wait to see what January will bring in terms of innovation for Nissan’s green cars.
