I’ve said it over and over again; electric cars don’t have to be boring. The Nissan ESFLOW is proof of that. Nissan’s rear-wheel drive electric sports car concept is proof of that, if only they will build it.
And if that doesn’t tittilate you, how about a 0-60 time of under five seconds? That’s equivalent to a car with 400 horsepower, but with zero emissions, no gas…and a distinct lack of engine rumble. I guess that’s the one pitfall of electric performance cars, no mean growl, but it wouldn’t stop me from buying a rear-wheel drive electric car. I think this thing looks hot, and it’s got all the right numbers to keep me interested. It sort of looks like a smaller 370Z, and I can totally dig that. Would you buy this bad boy if Nissan built it?
