Nissan’s first electric vehicle ambassador
Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn in the movie Suicide Squad, was recently named brand ambassador of the Nissan’s new all-electric BladeGlider sportscar.
The Australian actress raced the three-seater electric sports car in the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit.
A pair of 272PS performance BladeGlider cars raced through the iconic Tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square, proving that sportscar and electric can now be used in the same sentence.
“It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles,” said Robbie. “More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
The prototype 190km/h Nissan BladeGlider challenges the conventional thinking of what an all-electric sports car could look like in the future. Showcasing all the fun and excitement of pure electric vehicles, the prototype is part of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision of how cars should be driven, powered and integrated into society.
The Nissan BladeGlider will be on display at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show from March 7 to 19, 2017. Developed from a concept car first debuted in 2013, the all-electric sportscar is a precursor to a suite of future technologies that will combine Intelligent Mobility, environmentally friendly impact and sports-car driving capabilities.
