Nissan has launched the upgraded Note e-Power Nismo S in Japan, which gets some added kit and a power boost compared to the non-S-badged version that went on sale in that market in 2015.
Earlier this year, the Leaf Nismo was revealed with a stiffer suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, new looks and a slew of unique interior touches. It didn’t, however, get any more power to justify the hallowed Nismo badge.
Things are slightly different in the hotted-up Note. It gets the same array of black-and-red body add-ons as the Leaf, along with a stiffer suspension, more body bracing and tweaked power steering but (get fired up) the powertrain has also been boosted this time around.
With 100kW of power and 320Nm of torque on tap, it’s 25 per cent punchier than the previous Note e-Power Nismo. Nismo has freed up the extra grunt by tweaking the car’s inverter and vehicle control module, apparently.
Performance figures aren’t quoted, but it should be meaningfully quicker than the standard car and its 10-second 100km/h time.
