Case Study: Nissan Zeod RC

The revolutionary Nissan ZEOD RC (Zero Emissions On Demand Race Car) is a true innovation showcase.

Developed and run by RML at the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours on behalf of Nissan, the ‘Garage 56’ project broke new records, becoming the first car ever to lap the La Sarthe circuit as a full EV (electrical vehicle).

Reaching over 300kph along the Mulsanne Straight on EV power alone, the ZEOD’s revolutionary Powertrain comprises a 400bhp 40kg three cylinder 1.5 litre petrol engine – designed and built in-house at RML with a pair of 110kW electric motors, fed by a 12.5kWh battery pack, providing the crucial electric components that enabled Nissan to rewrite the history books.
