With sales forecasts assuming 1.5 million units sold in 2016 for the Renault-Nissan Alliance, electric mobility is more than ever at the heart of Nissan's strategy as its fleet of concepts proves it.
-First of all, the one closest to reality, a Nismo kit for the Leaf, the technology remains unchanged, it offers the 0 to 100kph in 7 seconds (same 145kph Vmax) improved aerodynamics and handling plus LED lights that gives it a more dynamic look.
The Leaf already represents sales of 20,000 units since its launch one year ago.
-The other big release is the Pivo3, a concept of micro electric city car, 3-seater with four-wheel steering. Pivo3 offers wireless charging and the driver as the ability to give instructions to the car via SmartPhone, for example if you want the Pivo3 to get you at a precise location.
-Then the one we really want to see on our roads, the Esflow
Initially revealed in Geneva, the electric coupe is here presented in a pearl white livery, its specs remain unchanged, 0 to 100kph under 5 seconds, a back wheel drive 2-seater with aluminum chassis and composite bodywork for a range of 240km.
Created purely for electric propulsion, Nissan ensures a dynamic vehicle thanks to lithium ion batteries placed in the floorplan between the axles. Still no launch announcement...
