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