You Can Actually Drift a Nissan LEAF
One of the biggest advantages of an electric vehicle (EV) is that it does not generate harmful gases into the atmosphere. But apart from that, it also has another exciting trick up its sleeve and that is drifting.
Drifting is usually performed by fuel-powered sports cars, but Nissan wanted to try something different.
In an unlikely pairing of adrenaline-inducing drifts and electric mobility, the new LEAF demonstrated with ease its ability to produce both maximum torque and force, while delivering virtually silent donuts and burnouts.
The world’s best-selling EV thereby debunked outdated perceptions that electric vehicles are nothing but large golf carts.
Throughout the test, the Nissan LEAF’s emissions remained at zero – a number symbolized by the vehicle’s donut tread marks. As such, exhilarating performance aside, this indoor drift experiment provides yet another reason for us to smile at the prospect of future electric mobility.
