‘What should a real electric sports car by Nissan look like? Well, not a penny the worse that the 370Z coupe!’ – that was probably what the Japanese designers thought when working at the Esflow concept. They endeavoured to keep all 370Z’s characteristic features – the long hood, bulging roof, L-shaped headlights and rear lights – having emphasized them even more and made them more muscular.
It’s a 2-seater with 4WD transmission. The electric motors are mounted near the rear wheels working separately from each other. Li-Ion batteries (the same as the production Nissan Leaf has) are placed exactly in the middle between the front and the rear axle, which provides equal weight distribution and keeps much of the mass within the wheelbase. Esflow’s frame is made from aluminium, the body panels are of composite.
