Nissan will race the ZEOD RC car at Le Mans 24 Hours in just a few days as the first car to complete a full lap of the storied race on nothing but electrons. That’s right, it’s an electric race car, albeit with an on-board generator for the full race, but the car will make history as the first in the top Le Mans circuit to be all-electric for at least one lap.
Before it can go, however, it must pass some testing to qualify for FIA standards as a Garage 56 entry. One of those is crash testing to ensure driver safety.
That testing has been done and the video below shows how well it did.
