Japanese LEAF buyers can make their EV a bit faster, cooler and lower – for $10,000 and up

The Nissan LEAF is a bit cooler in Japan, we’re sad to say. In its native land, the slightly dorky EV can be all tricked out with a body kit, flashy interior bits, and a performance ECU upgrade from Nissan tuning arm NISMO.

That’s right, for 136,500 Yen ($1,400), LEAF owners can have their car’s performance improved. The upgrade unleashes a bit more power – how much, we don’t yet know – without ruining the battery range. Not only does the acceleration improve, NISMO also reworks the Eco mode, which boosts cruising range, according to Green Car Reports.

Not only can Japanese buyers make their LEAF a bit quicker, they can also make it stand out in a crowd, too. As we’ve reported before, NISMO offers a body kit for the LEAF in either fiber-reinforced plastic or wet carbon. What does it cost, though? A staggering $10,225.
