The ground-breaking BladeGlider is Nissan’s view of a next-generation electric sports car and Williams Advanced Engineering has played an important role in the vehicle’s conception and creation as Nissan’s technical partner.
Initially unveiled at 2013 Tokyo Motor Show as a concept, the first fully operational demonstration vehicles debuted at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Williams Advanced Engineering was responsible for building these vehicles, drawing on the company’s knowledge of electrification, lightweight materials and aerodynamics.
Featuring a three-seater configuration with a narrow front track and wider rear track for enhanced aerodynamic efficiency and chassis dynamics, along with a central driving position, the fully electric Bladeglider offers exceptional performance delivered by Williams Advanced Engineering’s battery and motor technology with a top speed in excess of 118mph, with 0-60mph taking less than five seconds.
BladeGlider further builds on a successful collaborative relationship between Williams Advanced Engineering and Nissan on a number of previous projects including NISMO.
