While the Leaf is a practical and innovative electric vehicle, it hardly bears the same allure as Tesla’s Roadster or any other luxury car for that matter.  And that explains why the company has announced plans for an all electric two seater that can shoot from 0-60 in just 4 seconds and achieve a projected range of 150 miles.

So what’s it called?  The Esflow.  Okay, so we’re not digging the name, but they’re borrowing tech from the Nissan Leaf, leaving behind the mommy mobile stats and replacing it to be inline with race car pedigree, or so we hope.  

Right now, Nissan hasn’t released too much in the ways of specs and details, but they will show us more at the Geneva auto show, which fires up this March.  In terms of design it is notably similar to the car maker’s 370Z and 350z vehicles, and even borrows its front end from Mazda’s RX8.

Our best guess is that the Esflow, will never be a massively produced car and will probably serve best as a mouth piece and beacon for Nissan to draw more attention towards their less expensive, gas guzzling vehicles.  But that doesn’t mean we can’t salivate about one day driving one.
