ESFLOW in the Flesh

Posted in Blogging the Bloggers, Car Tech, Geneva Motor Show, News by Dustin Driver | February 24th, 2011 | 2 Responses |

We covered the announcement of the ESFLOW earlier this month. Way back then we only had these computer renders and a lame video to pique our interest in the little runabout. Now we have photos of the real-deal rolling concept vehicle in the flesh . . . er, sheet metal. And it’s right sexy.

These photos, captured backstage during an official Nissan photo shoot, show just how sleek and organic the thing is. It’s like a 370Z fell into a vat of molten adamantium and then rolled in el-wire.

According to Nissan, the ESFLOW is built on an aluminum chasis, sports dual electric motors at the rear wheels, and can hit 60 in less than five seconds. Range? About 150 miles.

At the risk of sounding like a Nissan copywriter, I would say the ESFLOW heralds a new era of sporty, fun electric cars that can defibrillate the dead hearts car enthusiasts who are already mourning the death of the internal combustion engine. If it’s anything like a Z car, it’ll do that and more.

But it’s just a concept, after all. I won’t put too much faith in the car hitting the road in its current form until it appears at dealerships or, of course, Nissan lends me one to test drive for a month or so.
