It could be a simple concept… Yet this electric coupe, the Nissan ESFLOW, demonstrates how it is possible to adopt a “green attitude” without giving up the pleasure of driving.
It looks like a sportswoman, behaves like a sportswoman… and also has all the performance. By using the technologies used on the acclaimed Nissan LEAF, this electric concept car demonstrates that driving pleasure will be as intense in the future as it is today.
In short terms:
-The Nissan ESFLOW, a sporty and electric car concept
-A two-seater propulsion system
-Two electric motors at the rear, one per wheel
-Lamellar lithium-ion battery module installed in the lower position for better weight distribution
-Dynamic design, with panoramic windscreen for extended visibility
-0-100 km/h in less than 5 seconds
-More than 240 km of autonomy with full batteries
The Nissan ESFLOW is a propulsion system, equipped with two electric motors. Due to the pleasant proportions of the vehicle, both electric motors could be positioned above the rear wheel axle in the forward central position. These electric motors independently drive the right and left wheels, which therefore optimizes torque to ensure unfailing stability and control of the vehicle as well as efficient energy recovery. These engines provide enough instant torque to increase the car’s speed from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 5 seconds.
The energy for the electric motors comes from the same lamellar lithium-ion battery pack that powers the Nissan LEAF. But on the Nissan ESFLOW, the pack is implanted in the longitudinal axis of the front and rear wheels. This arrangement centralizes the vehicle’s mass, and therefore its rotation point, which is approximately at the level of the driver’s hips. Thanks to the intelligent positioning of the battery, the car has a range of more than 240 km per charge.
Blue LEDs accentuate the futuristic look of the headlamps embedded in the bodywork, front and rear. The Nissan ESFLOW does without mirrors and opts for tiny cameras placed at the base of the A-pillars to monitor its rear. However, the Nissan ESFLOW’s headlamps hide a well-kept secret: retractable charging sockets integrated into the air inlets below.
