What if everything ran on gas?

In the news today you can read about how the Nissan Leaf is going to be driven by Chad Hord at Pikes Peak.  They’ve left it pretty bog standard, except for the addition of bucket seats, harnesses and a roll cage, and most of the interior software has been removed.  The engine hasn’t been touched.

So it’s going to battle to reach the podium, but it does have the small advantage of not needing air, so when it hits the higher end of the course it won’t suffer from any power loss.  I’m still a bit sceptical though…

I found this commercial for the Leaf online and it made me laugh.  Enjoy.
