Margot Robbie aka Harley Quinn is the newest ambassador of the top-notch Japanese auto brand for the new Nissan Electric BladeGlider. She was officially introduced as their new brand ambassador and this popular member of the Suicide Squad definitely ready to jumpstart on Nissan's popularity.

It's not surprising that automobile makers tap many popular actors and actresses to endorse their vehicle and Nissan is definitely no exception. Margot Robbie, the Aussie actress well-known to have played Harley Quinn in "Suicide Squad" and the recent movie "The Wolf of Wall Street," is set to ride and become the brand ambassador of Nissan's electric vehicle, according to Maxims.

Kicking off the event, Robbie rode the Nissan All-electric BladeGlider at a closed circuit in Monaco at the historic Fairmont Hairpin. The launch became like a mini movie where Robbie apparently raced with another BladeGlider and simply breeze through the streets. The car raced through the tunnels and out-ran one another until it finally ended at the Casino Square.  

"It's a really exciting time for electric vehicles," Margot Robbie said. "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."  

Car buzz mentioned that many are now becoming interested in using electric cars because it is environment-friendly and some think it is more efficient and saves energy. The all new Nissan BladeGlider demonstrates a 268 hp which accelerates to about 62 mph in just a mere 5 seconds.

Aside from its electric driving system, it also features a narrow front track with central driver seat enclosed with a pair of passenger seats and reverse butterfly doors. The engine features a 200kW electric motor with rear-wheel drive transmission.

The all new Nissan BladeGlider was first developed as a concept car in 2013 and was revealed in Tokyo, Japan. It will be seen during the 87th Geneva International Motor Show in March. Unfortunately, though, Margot Robbie will not be present during the show.
