To celebrate 35 years of production at Nissan’s Sunderland, UK plant, the automaker pulled out all the stops and released a fully custom-built rendition of its classic and colorful 1986 Bluebird, the first car to roll off the production line. The “Newbird” as it’s been dubbed is a one-off release featuring Nissan’s 100% electric LEAF powertrain. Kinghorn Electric Vehicles based in Durham, England handled the electric modifications converting this beauty from the 1980s into a modern EV. The LEAF electric battery can be recharged at up to 6.6kW with an approximate range of 130 miles and goes from 0-62mph in just under 15 seconds.

Beyond under the hood updates, Nissan added modifications to the power steering, braking, and heating systems along with a custom suspension. But, the retro paint job feels perfectly suited to the ’80s. While this was simply released as a celebratory one-off, Nissan aims to continue its EV production over the next few years.


Whether at home or on-the-go, when it comes to vaporizers, we want it all. We want to be able to use full flower or potent concentrates depending on the mood–and keep it smooth without any harsh smoke. We want multiple modes for unique combinations of flavor and vapor. We want an oven that’s as easy to clean as it is adjustable depending on the length of the session. Sounds impossible, right? It’s not with PAX Plus. In addition to packing all those features into one perfectly portable device, it’s also one the most sleek and stylish products that’s come out recently.
