Nissan Esflow, the affordable sports car of the future


is bringing an all-electric sports car to the 2011 Geneva Motor next month, and it is called the From the looks, the Nissan took on design cues of the Infiniti Essence and Nissan We can see the resembling in the fluid-like curvatures of the and the rear end that almost like from the Nissan

What s more, the Nissan is an all-electric two-seater sports car uses the same technology for the Nissan LEAF EV. But to separate the sports car from the LEAF Nissan uses two potent one for each rear wheel. The two motors are placed above the of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship to keep a balance weight

Each motor is independent of other to provide stability and as well as power regeneration.

As for the system, Nissan uses the laminated lithium-ion battery found in the Nissan LEAF. claims that the Esflow can 149 miles in a single charge, and it can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 5 seconds.

Tesla already has an sports car. but it is too expensive at a $100K price mark. If the Esflow ever gets would it able to hit the magic mark of under $35,000? We it could, since it will be on an already developed electrical from the Nissan LEAF.

If it we ll be seeing a lot more of the Nissan in the streets in the future.

The Nissan ESFLOW

Nissan has a for creating some of the most sports cars on the market. has also developed the world s practical Zero Emission car, the Nissan LEAF.

Now has put that expertise together. It has the excitement of a sports car and the environmental of an electric vehicle and blended into one dramatic two-seater ESFLOW.

ESFLOW has been from the ground up as a pure vehicle, to give an idea how a Emission sports car of the future look. Living ecologically has been seen as an act of austerity to one s environmental conscience sacrifices be made. ESFLOW is here to that misconception.

Owning an ecologically sound car not have to come at the expense of enjoyment. The briefest glance at the is enough to tell you what of car it is: a long bonnet leading a steeply raked, wrap windscreen, the compact cabin the occupants bang on the car s centre of hunched arches over profile tyres wrapped six spoke wheels. ESFLOW is a sports car, and those in the will recognize its heritage of classic and contemporary Nissan cars abound.

Vitally, is not an existing ICE (internal combustion powered vehicle that has adapted to run on electricity, but a sports car s been designed from the as a Zero Emission vehicle. means that Nissan s thinking designers have had rein to place the power and batteries in the optimum positions to the car s handling and performance and enhancing the of driving.

The Car

The ESFLOW is based on technology, implemented in innovative An attractive, head turning body covers an aluminium incorporating its own roll cage. The unit, which employs the technologies installed in the Nissan is tuned to offer a sporty experience.

The Powertrain

ESFLOW is drive and it runs on two motors. The car s proportions allow the twin motors to be placed above the of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship These motors independently the left and right wheels, and so the is optimized to ensure outstanding stability and control as well as power regeneration.

The motors produce enough in an instant for it to reach a 100kph in 5 seconds.

Power for the motors from the same laminated battery packs used in the LEAF, but in ESFLOW the packs are along the axis of the front and wheels. This centralizes the of the car, and thus its rotation close to the driver s hips. cleverly positioned batteries the car to travel over 240km on one

The Chassis

An aluminium chassis has built around the drive taking full advantage of the that Zero Emission propulsion provides. Power are incorporated in such a way that benefit ESFLOW s strength and not detract from them. unlike a conventional fuel batteries do not get lighter as they energy, so the car s weight distribution constant throughout a drive.

The waistline afforded by the ESFLOW s sports car proportions allows yet unobtrusive roll bars in to the structure behind the seats to take the entire load of the car in the of a roll over, negating the for obtrusive, thick, reinforced and the blind spots they create.

This almost view ahead will not be to fighter pilots, and just as pilots speak of strapping planes on to their backs , we ESFLOW owners will feel the car to be an extension of their reacting to their slightest The driver must be at the centre of the car both physically and metaphorically.

The Body

The ESFLOW is undoubtedly an car. Crisp, clean not only convey the purity of its potential, but suggest the clarity of power. The colour scheme for the concept car is inspired by glaciers reflective solidified liquid blue tints in its shadows. its ZEV concept forebears and contemporary mate the ESFLOW s headlights and emblem are tinted cool

The six spoke wheels contain carbon inserts while the material adorns the side roof mounted lip spoiler and rear bumper.

Blue accentuate the futuristic lights into the bodywork both and rear. Where the Nissan s protrusive headlights are used to airflow around the door this is not needed on ESFLOW as the have been replaced minute rear view at the base of its A-pillars. The ESFLOW s lights do protect a secret of own however: flip out charging built in to the air ducts beneath.


Ecological minimalism need not at the expense of luxury. The cabin of the is clean and open and weight has been a priority throughout its but it is still a comfortable and pleasant to sit. By far the heaviest components in cars interiors are the steel thickly upholstered and increasingly seats.

In ESFLOW the seats are into the rear bulkhead of the negating the need for a heavy This of course means they are immobile, but this is of no as the fly-by-wire steering and pedals electrically to the best spot to each individual driver s and preferred driving position.

The seats themselves are upholstered in leather and perforated gold while the doors are trimmed in blue leather and suede. The and gold motif, the colour of is continued across the dashboard, is also adorned with carbon trim, and features multifunction illuminated LCD displays.

On Saturday he drives to a club to exhibit his DJ skills and his are impressed by his cool EV sports

On Sunday he drives through the for leisure. ESFLOW s superb distribution and unobstructed view enables him to effortlessly nail apex, every time. His from the mountains is more and he allows the ESFLOW to overrun on the sweeping curves, turning the energy he and the car gained climbing up the back in to electrical energy he can use he hits the roads around
