The Nissan Leaf Nismo will hit the market this month in Japan, with a re-engineered computer that promises better acceleration and more powerful tires and suspension. But the true speed comes naturally from the red stripes.

It's best if the Leaf Nismo is more like a BMW M performance package than a real M-car, with the upgrades subtly adjusting the character and look of the car. Power numbers were not listed Nissan's press releasebut you can expect a largely similar output to the normal Leaf, with a slight focus on handling and response, to differentiate the Nismo model.

So, for those of you waiting for a budget performance EV, well, keep waiting. This is not the Everyman P100D, like that Base Leaf cruises to 60 in leisurely 7.4 seconds in Car & Driver Tests and we do not expect any significant improvement for the Nismo model. It's just the leaf you know, at least with a nodding look toward fun.

On the outside, you can distinguish Nismo Leafs with its wheels, splinter / diffuser combination and a pair of unique two-tone finishes. And then there's the sweet little rally light down there. In the interior, the Nismo model gets a red-gray accentuation and a Alcantara steering wheel with flat bottom.

No word from Nissan about whether or when we'll have the Nismo Leaf in the US.
