Watch Real Madrid's Eden Hazard Take A Spin In Several Nissan Electric Car

The soccer player put Nissan’s EVs through their paces on the track.

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has been getting to grips with Nissan’s EV offerings alongside the Japanese brand’s Formula E racer Oliver Rowland.

The pair came together at Jarama Circuit in Spain where Hazard put the Nissan Leaf e+ through its paces with coaching from Rowland. Next, Hazard experienced Leaf Nismo RC concept car, which is capable of accelerating to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds.

“I knew that electric vehicles can be fun to drive on the street – but wow, what a track experience,” Hazard said. “I particularly enjoyed driving the Nissan Leaf Nismo RC.

“I love performance cars, and the instant acceleration this car produces is incredible.”

Hazard, who is also captain of the Belgium national team, has been a Nissan brand ambassador since 2018. Ahead of his meeting with Rowland at Jarama, Hazard took delivery of a brand new Leaf e+ from the Caetano Reicomsa Nissan dealership in Madrid – he then drove it straight from there to the track.
