    Nissan is showing of something quite electrifying at the Goodwood this weekend. Meaning they have brought their all-electric BladeGlider prototype to the UK’s “Festival of Speed.”

    The BladeGlider uses the most cutting-edge zero emission technology and innovative automotive design in a form factor that meet the needs of a future commuter. In other words, a 3-seater designed to meet the needs of the daily grind. Except that it adds a bit of excitement from a little electricity to cover the distance.

    At the Goodwood Hillclimb and the circuit afterwards, some lucky VIPs will be able to drive the 100-percent all-electric Blade Glider.

    In between runs while charging, Nissan will place the BladeGlider on static display in the Goodwood paddock, allowing attendees to get an up-close look at the brands vision of the future for performance cars.

    I'd like to see the small, frontal overlap safety test... Oops! Missed the car!

    Actually, since the driver is in the center, this car would be a lot safer in the small overlap test, all else being equal.
