Nissan have announced their intention to take up the Garage 56 slot for the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans with an all-new fully electric car.

The announcement was made from the new NISMO base in Yokohama as the brand outline their racing plans for 2013 and further into the future.

Nissan were part of the DeltaWing project that was the first occupant of Garage 56 under the Automobile Club de l’Ouest’s scheme to invite innovative designs and technologies to take part on the famous endurance race. However, earlier this year it was announced the manufacturer had split from the project, Dr. Don Panoz taking engine building in house for future DeltaWing outings.

Garage 56 for this year will be filled by the GreenGT machine, a hydrogen fuelled car.

Nissan continue to have a strong conventional representation on the entry list for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans with 16 LMP2 cars set to run with Nissan power at the event.

Their work on the new technologies for their Garage 56 entry are part of a longer-term project intended to bring a new approach in a future LMP1 car.
