Nissan has recently announced its electrification project “R32EV” that aims to add the latest electrification technology to the iconic R32-generation Skyline GT-R. The project is said to have originated from an engineer’s passion for the GT-R, who joined Nissan to create a more thrilling car by adding the latest electrification technology to their favorite vehicle.
Although there’s no official word yet on how Nissan will convert the Skyline GT-R, the project has already generated considerable buzz and controversy. While some may argue that gutting the motorsport icon for an electric drivetrain could spoil its essence, others see it as a unique opportunity to merge classic design with cutting-edge technology.
Interestingly, Nissan’s move towards electrification follows in the footsteps of Toyota, who recently produced hydrogen and electric versions of its iconic AE86 series cars. This trend towards converting classic cars into electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles could be an exciting development for automotive enthusiasts who may shift their perspectives on the increasingly electric future.
In summary, Nissan’s “R32EV” electrification project could create a new era of high-performance, electric vehicles that merge classic car design with modern technology. As the unnamed engineer from Nissan said, “by combining the car that I love the most with the technology that I think is the best, we can create a car that people around the world will be more excited about.”
