EXACTLY 70 years after the debut of
its first electric vehicle (EV), Nissan’s
most advanced EV ever – the Nissan
BladeGlider sports car – has taken
centre stage at Goodwood Festival of
The 100% electric prototype spent
Friday and Saturday in the thick of the
action, with electrifying performances
on the famous Hillclimb course.
The culmination of the weekend
was a Sunday test session on the
historic Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Putting the all-electric BladeGlider
through its paces was NISMO athlete
Lucas Ordóñez, who becomes the first
professional racing driver to take the
wheel of the three-seater.
Nissan’s EV success story began in
1947 – exactly 70 years ago – with the
launch of the Tama. This pioneering
four-seater EV was available as a
passenger car and a van, and offered
customers a range of 65km on a full
charge. It was initially developed by
the Tokyo Electro Automobile Co Ltd,
which later became part of Nissan.
Since the debut of the Tama in
1947, Nissan has established a rich
heritage in zero-emission technology
as the world leader in EVs. It pioneered
the EV revolution with the launch of
world’s first mass-market 100% electric
passenger car – the Nissan LEAF – in
2010. The new second-generation
LEAF will make its world premiere on 6
Ordóñez, a former winner of Nissan’s
GT Academy competition to turn
computer gamers into racers, was
thrilled by the opportunity to test-drive
He commented: “Driving the
BladeGlider round the famous
Goodwood Motor Circuit has been
a fantastic experience. 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.”
The BladeGlider’s debut at
Goodwood Festival of Speed helped
showcase the Nissan Intelligent
Mobility vision of a more confident,
more connected and more exciting
future for the brand’s models.
The zero-emission prototype also
supports Nissan’s #ElectrifyTheWorld
movement, which is dedicated to
harnessing conversations around
sustainable energy use.
The BladeGlider was created to
demonstrate the potential of a pure
electric powertrain to satisfy the
dynamic and performance needs of
sports car enthusiasts. It has been
developed by Nissan in association
with its technical partner for the
project, UK-based Williams Advanced
