Nissan ZEOD RC Electric Race Car

Nissan’s ZEOD RC (Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car) Electric Race Car will be on the track at Le Mans in 2014. The 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, held at Circuit de la Sarthe in France, is the world’s most famous endurance car race. It is also well-known for its ‘garage 56’ slot – a garage reserved for vehicles competing using new, prototype technology and not entered in any specific racing class. That’s where you’ll find the ZEOD RC next year.

Nissan reports that the ZEOD can reach speeds of more than 186 mph. Word is that the ZEOD will race using both gasoline and electric power, using a system not far removed from what is currently employed by the Nissan Leaf. The car will travel approximately six laps in a charging mode, followed by another lap entirely on electric propulsion.

Performance-wise, the ZEOD is expected to take on other top-level prototypes run by Audi, Toyota and others.

Nissan recently announced that Lucas Ordonez will drive the ZEOD at Le Mans in 2014.
