Nissan Wins the Dakar!!
OK...not really...in fact Nissan vehicles did particularly poor this year with only a few entered and fewer finishing including a number of the usually solid Dessoude Nissans that included the fastest and most capable Nissan driven by Christian Lavieille that was out of the event after only a couple stages.
Not all is lost however!!
A very unique Nissan powered vehicle did finish and was the first ever of its kind to do so.
The #370 OSCar Eo became the first electric driven vehicle to ever finish the Dakar ending up in 77th out of the 78 official finishers with a time that was inclusive of 24 hours and ten minutes of penalties--but hey!! They did finish!
