The new LEAF NISMO will be available in nine body colors, including the NISMO series’ custom Brilliant Silver (Metallic)/Super Black two-tone and the Dark Metal Grey (Metallic)/Super Black two-tone.
Some of the custom features for the New LEAF NISMO will include a sporty interior, the distinctive layered double wings of the NISMO road car series, dedicated 18-inch high-grip tires, custom suspension system, and custom-tuned electric power steering and Intelligent Trace Control.
