The world's fastest electric racer Launched By Nissan at Le Mans

Nissan chooses Le Mans in France, home to one of the world’s most prestigious 24-hour races, to unveil its prototype electric speed racer, the ZEOD RC.

The Zero Emission On Demand Racing car is said to be capable of a top speed in excess of 300 kilometers per hour (186.4 miles per hour), is shaped a bit like the closed-cockpit version of the DeltaWing (albeit, to our eyes, better looking) and will make its debut in 2014 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This weekend, visitors to the race will have the opportunity to view the prototype near the Circuit de la Sarthe.

The ZEOD RC uses an electric-only system similar to Nissan’s Leaf Nismo RC. But where the Leaf Nismo RC only delivered 107 hp and a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph), the ZEOD RC is expected to be capable of speeds exceeding 300 km/h (186 mph). It has lightweight architecture and advanced aerodynamics.

Nissan will partner with French tire manufacturer Michelin to produce tires for the new prototype. Nissan previously joined forces with Michelin on the Nissan DeltaWing program. The Clermont-Ferrand-based manufacturer has an enviable record at the Le Mans 24 Hour, winning the past 15 consecutive races overall.

The Nissan ZEOD RC will make its testing debut later this summer. Nissan's assault on the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hour will again target victory in the P2 class with 15 of the 22 entries powered by Nissan. In the opening rounds of the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship, Nissan has dominated, taking victory at Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps.

Important Points :

1. Nissan ZEOD RC will utilize the same lithium battery technology as used in the award-winning Nissan 
2. The Nissan ZEOD RC will achieve speeds in excess of 300km/h.
3. Multiple electric drivetrain technologies to be tested before racing in 2014 Le Mans 24 Hour and assesed 
    for potential in LM P1.
4. Nissan again at the forefront of Zero Emission and battery technology.
