The Nissan ESFLOW is based on existing technology - including
a drivetrain borrowed from the Nissan Leaf. However unlike
the Leaf the ESFLOW is a two-seat, RWD sports car.

The ESFLOW features twin electric motors which are mounted
above the axis of the rear wheels, in a mid-ship position.
These motors independently control the left and right
wheels, and so the torque delivery is controllable to
improve stability and also increase the efficiency of
power recovery during deceleration. The motors provide
enough motivation to bring the ESFLOW up to 62 mph (100km/h)
in under 5 seconds.
Power for the motors comes from lithium-ion battery packs
which are located between the front and rear wheels for
balanced weight distribution.
