Refresher: Power for the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC comes from a lithium-ion battery composed of 48 compact modules and a high-response 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107-hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. 80 percent charge can be reached in 30 minutes using a quick charging port (just like the regular Leaf). 0 to 62 mph comes in 6.85 seconds with a top speed of 93 mph.
