Japanese carmaker Nissan is now working on a new model to use it at the 2014 edition of the Le Mans. We are in fact talking about the ZEOD RC, the Zero Emission On Demands Racing Car. So far, the engineers have worked on the carbon fiber tub and chassis borrowed from DeltaWing. Next the specialists will install the twin electric motors and fitting the seat of the driver and GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez. If everything goes according to the schedule, the zero-emission car will arrive on the British track this month. Ordonez will be one that will ride the Nissan ZEOD RC for the first time next week as soon as this model will receive the specially made seat. The model will be used in pure electric mode with zero emissions. The Japanese manufacturer will also test a lot of other electric drive trains before locking in its package for the 2014 edition of the Le Mans. The engineers want to reach 300 km/h under electric power train at the Le Mans and the carmaker assures us that the Nissan Zero Emission On Demands Racing Car has this capability. This is what Director of Motorsport Innovation of Nissan, Ben Bowlby declared. The target of the carmaker is to finish the entire 8.5 circuit with the electric power train with no problems. We first heard about this situation in February this year when the official announcement was made. We will have the opportunity to see a lot of innovative technology elements soon. The carmaker is now partner with Michelin and they are the only ones that will be able to produce new prototypes.
