Nissan reports that the ZEOD can reach speeds of more than 186 mph. Word is that the ZEOD will race using both gasoline and electric power, using a system not far removed from what is currently employed by the Nissan Leaf. The car will travel approximately six laps in a charging mode, followed by another lap entirely on electric propulsion.
Performance-wise, the ZEOD is expected to take on other top-level prototypes run by Audi, Toyota and others.
Nissan recently announced that Lucas Ordonez will drive the ZEOD at Le Mans in 2014.
