Nissan, a company started in the year 1933 in Japan, is a manufacturer and a worldwide dealer of automobiles. As per the 2011 statistics, it was termed as the 6th biggest company.

ZEOD RC sounds a pretty big and complicated term, doesn’t it? The terminology is rather simple when we elaborate it. It stands for Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car. It basically is using a Lithium ion battery to power the vehicle. This was also seen its previous venture, Nissan Leaf. If you are wondering why it is called ZE on demand then here is the answer. The car has two driving options – petrol and electric. The driver gets the privilege to swap between the two modes and convert the fueled car into an all Electric Car while it is on the drive. This is been taken as the future of automobiles to get on the road.
Due to this innovative technology, the car has been invited to enter in the race through the spot referred to as “Garage 56” of Automobile Club De I’ Quest. This is the slot reserved for cars which challenge the normal trend and do something extra ordinary.
The car will be seen racing in the next year’s Le Mans 24 hours. Prior to its launch, Nissan is planning to experiment with its engine and electric motor to get the optimum out of this effort. The progress on the car can be viewed at Nissan’s website on a regular basis. This is taken an act of publicity for its latest super car.
