Nissan celebrates 70 years of electric vehicles

GOODWOOD, UK – Exactly 70 years after the debut of its first electric vehicle (EV), Nissan’s most advanced EV ever – the Nissan BladeGlider sports car – took center stage at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
The 100% electric prototype spent Goodwood festival weekend in the thick of the action, with electrifying performances on the famous Hillclimb course. The culmination of the weekend was a test session on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit. Putting the all-electric BladeGlider through its paces was NISMO athlete Lucas Ordóñez, who became the first professional racing driver to take the wheel of the three-seater. Ordóñez, a former winner of Nissan’s GT Academy competition to turn computer gamers into racers, was thrilled by the opportunity to test-drive the BladeGlider.
“Driving the BladeGlider round the famous Goodwood Motor Circuit has been a fantastic experience,” said Ordóñez. “It’s such an exciting car to drive, with so much torque from the moment you start. It’s great fun on a fast track like this and so quick through the corners.”
