Nissan Reveals ESFLOW, Its Electric Sports Car

Recommended Posts


We showed you renderings of that Nissan ESFLOW electric sports car, but now that the International Motorshow in Geneva is drawing near, here’s a pic of the actual vehicle from a pre-show event in Frankfurt.

As you peruse the gallery on AllCarsElectric, notice details of the interior that haven’t been revealed before — is Nissan using the same Windows Embedded Automotive 7 system in ESFLOW as it does in its now-available electric car, the Leaf?

Keep in mind that this is a concept car and will probably change drastically by the time it hits the streets. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t hope this ultimate gadget retains some of its unusual yet (hopefully) aerodynamic shape and that spectacular accent lighting. And on the other hand, we’re wishing for a range longer than the announced 150 miles, and hope for a price that doesn’t put this carriage into exotic-car territory. We might know more when the Geneva show gets underway March 3.

As an illustration of how concept vehicles can be unrecognizable by the time they’re for sale, remember the Chevy Volt, whose concept car looked a lot more futuristic than the current assembly line version. Not long after the Volt concept car debuted, GM’s then-vice chairman Bob Lutz said the car might have had better aerodynamic results if they had put it in the wind tunnel backward. So the design team went back to the drawing board.
