At Nissan’s stand in the Geneva Motor Show, there is only one non-production vehicle that was displayed – the ESFLOW concept. Making its world debut, the ESFLOW comes as a pure EV sports car. The model on display takes inspiration from glaciers. Actually Nissan describes it as “highly reflective solidified liquid with blue tints in its shadows.”
Nissan tinted the vehicle’s headlights and Nissan emblem cool blue. In addition, the six spoke wheels contain blue carbon inserts. The same material was used on the side sill, roof mounted lip spoiler and lower rear bumper. Blue LEDs highlight the futuristic lights slashed into the bodywork both front and rear.
The interior, which is said to be both luxurious and eco-friendly, has highlights that include the steel framed, thickly upholstered and increasingly motorized seats. Adjustments are made electrically by the fly-by-wire steering and pedals so as to best suit the driver’s size and preferred driving position.
It also features gold leather upholstery and perforated gold suede on the seats. The doors are trimmed in dark blue leather and suede. The dashboard also features this blue and gold motif (the color of sparks).
It has silver carbon trim, and it features four multifunction illuminated LCD displays. In terms of performance, the vehicle is rear-wheel drive and it is equipped with two electric motors that are positioned above the axis of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship position.
Lithium-ion battery packs, the same as those used in the Nissan LEAF, power the ESFLOW. These battery packs give the car enough power for it to run over 240 km (150 miles) on a single charge.
