Australian actress and Nissan electric vehicle (EV) ambassador Margot Robbie hosted her first Facebook livestream, announcing that Nissan will premiere its new Formula E electric concept livery at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018.

The cameras, lights and equipment used to broadcast the live appearance were powered by the new Nissan Leaf battery.

Margot Robbie said: “The world is going electric and technology is getting smarter. Even the cameras used for the broadcast were powered using the Nissan Leaf, something I never thought a car would be able to do. It’s crazy in a way but it’s another simple demonstration of how we can change the way we drive and live to create a cleaner and more sustainable world for everyone.”


Nissan announced last year that it will enter the fast-growing Formula E series in the 2018/19 season. The all-electric series gives Nissan a highly visible global platform from which to spread the message of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the three-pillar strategy to redefine how its vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society.

Nissan launched the second generation of the Nissan Leaf in the Middle East in November 2017. 

The car’s features include the e-Pedal, which reportedly allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate, stop, and hold the car with just the use of the accelerator pedal.

The e-powertrain, which offers a power output of 110 kW, 38% more than the previous generation Nissan Leaf.
