Nissan’s Ariya gets the Nismo treatment.

Making performance versions of EVs is tricky, because the electric assist is already pretty darn snappy and the vehicle body has likely been aero-optimized from the beginning. What’s left? Well, according to Nissan, plenty. The latest version of the company’s Ariya compact SUV features handling and performance “all brought about by NISMO’s exclusive tuning.” Basically hand it over to your racing division and see what they come up with.

Of course there’s an option to add fake engine noises “evocative of Formula E racing.”
