The Nissan ESFLOW Concept has been officially presented by the Japanese based automaker at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s promising to take on the electric vehicle sports car segment if it enters production.
Even if the Nissan ESFLOW Concept isn’t quite new to the public, being already presented at other automotive events earlier this year, it’s actually a fully working vehicle which has been developed by the Japanese based automaker in order to reinforce its statement that it wants to bring electric sports cars to the market. Nissan is using electric technology from its Leaf model onto the ESFLOW Concept which will help the manufacturer to cut down on production costs if the vehicle will be eventually presented as a production version.
According to Nissan, the ESFLOW Concept is using the Leaf’s powertrain but, in order to provide the vehicle with some extra power, it’s actually using two electric motors, unlike the Leaf. The Japanese based automaker is claiming that if the ESFLOW Concept will hit the market, it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in around 5 seconds. It seems that Nissan have planned its ESFLOW evolution and says that if a production version of the concept will arrive, it will be priced around 26.000 EUR (35.000 USD).
