Nissan zero-emission racing car. Le Mans 2014 debut
Nissan unveiled the ZEOD RC (Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car), the world's fastest electric racing car, which is claimed to reach speeds of more than 300km/h with electric technology at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Nissan ZEOD RC will utilise the same lithium battery technology as used in the Nissan Leaf.
Nissan's invitation from the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) to compete in the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours was announced by Nissan Chairman and CEO, Carlos Ghosn in Japan in February.
The car will compete under the ACO's 'Garage 56' entry.
The technologies developed through the ZEOD RC program will form part of future innovations for Nissan road cars, said the company.
The ZEOD RC (Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car) will make its race debut at next year's Le Mans 24 Hour.
"The Nissan ZEOD RC is a natural progression that follows on from the development of the Nissan Leaf road car and the Leaf RC race car prototype. The technologies developed through the ZEOD RC program will form part of future innovations for Nissan road cars," said Andy Palmer, Executive Vice President and Executive Committee member at Nissan Motor Company Limited.

Nissan Unveils World's Fastest Electric Car
The Nissan ZEOD RC (Zero Emissions On-Demand Racing Car) prototype is part technology demo and part publicity stunt for the Japanese automaker. The car uses the same lithium-ion batteries as the Nissan Leaf electric car, and Nissan is touting the fact that race-car technology often finds its way to cars driven on the street.
Andy Palmer, an executive vice-president at Nissan, said in a statement that this zero-emission, on-demand option lets a driver "switch between electric and petrol-powered drive," calling it the future direction for road cars. He continued, "That will be tested in addition to pure electric power and other new technologies that we still have under development."
