Nissan-Leaf-convertibleWe all love the Nissan LEAF here at The News Wheel and what it’s doing to promote adoption of electric vehicles, but even we have to admit that the car is pretty standard. It has great features and the a cool new design, but at the end of the day it’s a hatchback. Well, all that has just changed with the debut of the Nissan LEAF Open Car.

As you can see from the photo, this Nissan LEAF unveiled in Tokyo last week was transformed into a fun-looking convertible. Nissan designers created this vehicle to celebrate the 100,000th Nissan LEAF sold in Japan since the nameplate first rolled out in 2010. That key sale came at a good time, coinciding with a forum discussing the goal of a zero-emission future. About 100 people attended the summit, which represented company executives and local and prefecture government officials, and this Nissan LEAF was the centerpiece.

Now comes the bad news. The Nissan LEAF Open Car is not now, nor will it ever be, on sale. To have the wind whip through your hair while driving a Nissan LEAF, you will have to roll all of the windows down instead. The latest generation of the Nissan LEAF made its debut last October, and its improved range and advanced safety suite make it a great candidate for your personal fleet instead.
