Nissan Leaf NISMO: Don’t Mistake Me For Lexus CT200!

By  | 

The Lexus CT200h is not the most popular or the best rated hybrid car around but we can be glad that the green hatchback does not look like alien pod.

Despite being based largely on the Toyota Prius, the CT200h is still able to look like a decent hatchback and this is something Lexus can be proud of. We raised this point because we are starting to feel that Nissan has taken some inspirations from the CT200h when designing the Leaf NISMO.

Yes, you read that right. The rumored Leaf NISMO is now an official thing and a concept will be making its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. What bothers us is that the leak photo of the Leaf NISMO reminded us about the CT200h.

If you can look past the design on the body, the structure of the Leaf NISMO is very close to that of the CT200h. Either way, we really dig its appearance and can’t wait to check out the vehicle in person.
