2018 Nissan Leaf Goes Topless

Perhaps the thought has crossed your mind at some point; what would the 2018 Nissan Leaf look like if you removed the top and two doors. Well Nissan has read your mind and came up with a concept called the Leaf Open Car.

In celebration of the model’s 100,000 sales milestone in Japan since the Leaf was first introduced 2010, designers have come up with a two door convertible concept. AutoBlog was more surprised by how long it took for Japan to hit that number than they are of the concept. In fact, the U.S. reached that milestone back in 2016.

But we’re getting off topic. The Leaf Open Car made its first appearance at the Tokyo forum on zero-emission society with around 100 people in attendance, including local and prefectural government officials and company executives.

Nissan hasn’t released additional information aside from the convertible’s lack of future production plans. So anyone who’s actually interested will have to make due with the concept though it’s honestly not bad looking with a Targa-style roof and two-door body. Of course structural rigidity and rollover protection comes into question with these body styles, but as a concept model Nissan probably wasn’t all that worried about meeting safety requirements.

Let us know what you think of the Leaf Open Car below.

This is precisely why i like what Tesla is doing with their windshields. Its designed in way that makes the vehicle feel "open". No more annoying cut off close to where the dash ends.
