CarMax’s new supercar looks just like the old Leaf: a luxury sedan.
But that’s not the case at all, according to CarMax founder Carly Hallam.
In a video posted to Instagram, Hallam explains that the carmax design team spent a year refining the new Leaf’s styling.
“We took it to Nissan and asked them, ‘What would you think if you were driving it?’
And they said, ‘A Nissan Leaf.’
And that’s exactly what we did,” Hallam said.
The new carmax will feature a carbon fiber body, and a carbon-fiber roof.
The interior is also expected to be more luxurious than the Leaf, with an all-black interior, as well as carbon-finish dash panels.
The carmax’s battery will be similar to the Leaf’s, with both using a hybrid battery pack, Hallams said.
The new car max will be available in late 2019.
