Nissan Leaf to tackle Pikes Peak challenge

Nissan is attempting another publicity seeking stunt in its all-electric Leaf by entering the car into the gruelling Pikes Peak hillclimb in Colorado Springs.

The Leaf will compete on the same 12.42 mile course as several insane and one-off creations such as an 850bhp Dacia Duster concept and various stock Ford Mustangs and Chevys.
