Actress Margot Robbie is Electric
 

Well this is obvious. The 26-year-old star of films such as Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad and The Big Short is one of the hottest commodities in Hollywood at the moment. But she’s also electric for another reason.

You see Robbie has just been named as Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) brand ambassador. This means that her famous visage will be used to punt products like the Leaf as well as the firm’s radical new BladeGlider concept: a 220KWH, 707Nm, 200kW three-seater sports car designed to, uh, spark a little excitement in the electric car arena.

To showcase what the BladeGlider is all about Nissan shot a mini-film of Robbie racing a BladeGlider around the famous Monaco Street Circuit at midnight. “It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles,” said the Australian after filming had wrapped. “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 will be on display at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show from March 7 to 19, 2017. So if you’re in town stop by and take a closer look. Who knows, maybe you’ll bump into Robbie too. – Thomas Falkiner
