Electric vehicle (EV) concepts seemed to outnumber their internal combustion engine-equipped counterparts this year at the 81st International Geneva Motor Show. One EV concept that stood out from all the rest, however, was the dramatically styled, technically advanced Nissan Esflow.
The Wall Street Journal was one of many global media outlets weighing in on the Esflow’s “electrifying” performance credentials. Here’s a brief summary: “The Esflow recalls the company’s long-running Z two-seater, but the car maker says the Esflow is a pure electric car that isn’t based on an existing gasoline-powered model. Nissan has long said its electric-car strategy stretches far beyond the Nissan LEAF, so the promise of an electric performance car in showrooms seems strong. Nissan says the Esflow’s two electric motors driving the rear wheels can propel the car from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in less than five seconds. Such acceleration puts it in the company of Ferraris and Porsches.”
They also added: “For driving enthusiasts the concept car suggests one won’t necessarily have to give up the engaging experience of fast, sharp-handling cars when switching to electric power.”
