New Nissan Electric Sports Car
GENEVA (AP) — What do you get if you cross Nissan's Leaf electric compact with one of the Japanese car maker's Z-car racers?
Possibly the Esflow, an unlikely mashup the Yokohama-based constructor unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show this week.
On the outside it's all flash, with a gleaming silver aluminum body and sexy sportscar curves inspired by Nissan's long racing lineage.
Under the hood, though, Nissan has opted to go with two electric motors, indistinguishable from those it builds for its Leaf electric compact car that began selling late last year.
