Nissan first revealed the all-electric BladeGlider Sport concept in 2013 in Rio, Brazil. The car quickly generated plenty of hype all on its own as Nissan, known for staying away from more creative designs, seemed to be thinking outside the box. The hype died down in the following years but now Nissan is proving its mettle. Say hello to the Nissan BladeGlider Sport EV prototype!
That’s right—Nissan is going full throttle with its futuristic hotrod, and that isn’t just a figure of speech. Under the hood of this all-electric sports car are twin 130 kW motors that can produce a whopping 268 hp and 521 lb-ft of instant torque. That gives this crazy car a zero-to-60mph time of under five seconds. Boasting a top speed of 115 mph, things are about to get exciting with the Nissan lineup.
Best of all, Nissan has revealed not just one, but two working prototypes, proving the automaker is serious about futuristic designs. While the BladeGlider Sport EV still isn’t heading to the production line, it does hint at what’s yet to come, perhaps what is to be under the hood of the Nissan LEAF.
We here at Nissan of Clinton can’t helped but be amazed at the technology behind the Nissan BladeGlider Sport EV prototype!
