It'll be harder to make fun of electric cars if Nissan actually build the ESFLOW concept — a two-seat, rear-wheel-drive EV. It's the car you'd get if a 370Z ravished a Leaf — and God, do we want it.
While it has the same 24 kWh battery pack as the Leaf, the ESFLOW puts it to more sporting use, driving a pair of electric motors balanced over the rear axle that can propel the concept to 60 mph in under five seconds. The smoother body and lack of rear seats also means the ESFLOW can travel about 150 miles before needing a recharge, almost a 50% improvement on the Leaf.
Nissan will unveil the concept at the Geneva auto show in March, and then quickly put it into production for a reasonable price, assuming Paris and Yokohama are still within reach of a reasonable God.
