The new Nissan BladeGlider, which hits 100km/h in less than five seconds, challenges the conventional thinking of what an all-electric sports car could look like in the future. Showcasing all the fun and excitement of pure electric vehicles, the prototype is part of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision of how cars should be driven, powered, and integrated into society.
Margot Robbie has been nominated as the new ambassador of Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) by racing the carmaker’s radical all-electric BladeGlider sports car around the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit. The pair of 272PS performance cars raced through the iconic Tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square. In the film, the Suicide Squad and The Wolf of Wall Street star are also seen demonstrating the drifting prowess of Nissan BladeGlider around one of the most famous corners in the world of motorsport – the iconic Fairmont Hairpin.
Margot Robbie said: “It’s an exciting time for electric vehicles. More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future, and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
As the manufacturer of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, the LEAF, Nissan is also revolutionizing the way energy is generated and utilized with products like its intelligent xStorage Home unit and vehicle-to-grid technology, which harness the power of battery technology from electric vehicles.
The Nissan BladeGlider will be on display at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show from 7th to 19th March 2017.
