Nissan reveals their 2014 Le Mans Garage 56 Entry – ZEOD RC – World’s Fastest Electric Racing Car

Nissan ZEOD RC 2014 Le Mans Racer

Nissan has today unveiled its new Garage 56 entry for the 2014 Le Mans race, as we mentioned a few days ago.

The new car called the ZEOD RC, which stands for Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car, is the world’s fastest electric racing car.

The new ZEOD RC does resemble Nissan’s last Garage 56 entry the DeltaWing and there is a reason for this, Nissan has appointed the original designer of the DeltaWing Ben Bowlby as director of Nissan’s Motorsport Innovation.

The Garage 56 entry is an additional spot on the Le Mans 24hr grid created by the organisers, Automobile Club de l’Ouest,  for vehicles that showcase new and innovative technology.

While no exact performance or technical figures have been released as yet, we do know that the electric technology will come from Nissan’s Leaf road car.

So the next 12 months of development and testing will be very interesting to watch in the lead up to the 2014 Le Mans race.

Portuguese police will soon have new leads and be charged. Local police have taken delivery of a fleet of Nissan LEAF electric vehicles.

The eight Nissan LEAF police cars will be operated by Portugal’s PSP (Polícia de Segurança Pública) the security force responsible for policing the large urban areas of the country.

The multi-award winning, zero-emission cars will be used mainly as part of the PSP’s Safe School Program, but with flashing blue lights, sirens and clear ‘Polícia’ markings, they can be called upon to perform other police duties at any time.

Nissan LEAF was chosen by PSP as part of its push to reduce its ecological footprint. “We pride ourselves in being the first police force in the world to incorporate cars with zero-emission technology as part of our 5,000 vehicle fleet,” said Superintendent Paul Gomes Valente, National Director of PSP.

“We want to continue reducing pollution in large urban centres and the introduction of the 100 per cent electric Nissan LEAF sets a new benchmark for our fleet,” he added.

Portugal is an EV pioneer in Europe. It was one of the first countries to install a network of EV chargers in its big cities and was the first to sell Nissan LEAF to the European public when it was introduced in 2011.
