2011 Nissan Esflow Concept
2011 Esflow Concept as green car model by Nissan for this year’s edition of the Geneva Salon Show. Nissan Esflow sports coupe concept has “captured the excitement of a sports car and the environmental benefits of an electric vehicle and blended them into one dramatic two-seater concept”.
2011 Nissan Esflow Concept also has most of the right ingredients to satisfy purists, including a rear-wheel drive layout, the electric motors produce enough torque in an instant for the car to reach 100km/h (62 mph) in under 5 seconds, two seats and an aggressive design, but there’s a catch: it runs purely on electricity.
The Esflow Concept created from the ground up as a pure electric vehicle using technology introduced in the Leaf EV. The concept model runs on two electric motors with an unspecified output that are placed above the axis of the front and rear wheel. The batteries are said to offer a driving range of over 240 kilometers or 149 miles on a single charge. These motors independently control the left and right wheels, with Nissan claiming that the torque is optimized to ensure vehicle stability and control as well as efficient power regeneration.
The car concept features a composite body that covers an aluminium chassis which incorporates its own roll cage. While in interior Nissan said the cabin is “clean and open” with weight saving measures being a priority throughout its design.
