Now that the LEAF has proved itself to be in high demand, Nissan is planning to expand its line of LEAF-related vehicles. According to Inside Line, a Nissan source has confirmed that it will be using the LEAF drivetrain in both a luxury vehicle and a sports car.
The luxury vehicle will be branded as an Infiniti, while there's no news yet of what shape the sports car may take. So far, it looks like the 370Z and Essence Coupe are the most likely candidates, but we won't know until Nissan makes an offical announcement.
Hopefully Nissan's strategy of making affordable EVs will apply to the sports car too. For everyone who's priced out of a Tesla Roadster, this might be the next best thing.
