Actor Margot Robbie has been revealed as the new face of Nissan electric cars and zero emission in a staged midnight race around the glamorous streets of Monaco.
Robbie tested the Nissan BladeGlider, which can top 100kph in less than five seconds.
I’m ever so glad they chose Margot for this advert because we need some distraction away from how terrible the car looks on the outside. But I do understand the asthetic of the car is purely for aerodynamic ‘drag’ purposes. The inside looks amazing but outside, well let’s just say my retina’s started to burn on first vison contact. The car looks like a very futuristic dragster but wouln’t look at home anywhere other than a well-shot advert or a professional track.
Showcasing the electric sports car of the future Margot Robbie put the futuristic three-seater through its paces before finishing her thrilling drive in Casino Square, which has served as the set for blockbusters Ocean’s Eleven and Casino Royale not to mention Grand Prix racing since the 1920s.
Margot Robbie said: “It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles. More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
The BladeGlider is part of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision, showing how cars could evolve to connect with the world around them.
Monte Carlo provided the perfect backdrop for me to distract away from the car and although the stats of this electric car are impressive I fail to see myself even wanting to be seen with anyone sat in the passenger seat, let alone driving it. The doors and interior however, are awesome!
