Nissan has unveiled Esflow Concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The Nissan Esflow Concept uses driveline similar toNissan Leaf. It is an electric sports car, but it is much different than your average sports car.

Some of the design features and technology will be transferred over to another anticipated Nissan n model, the 370Z Hybrid.

The two-seat Esflow concept is a rear-wheel-drive sports car, that promises its only emissions will be some why-so-serious smiles. A pair of electric motors sits above the rear wheels. The powertrain for the Nissan Esflow consist of two electric motors which are positioned above the rear wheels and a low mounted laminated lithium-ion battery pack for better weight distribution.

The speed from 0-62 mph in less than five seconds. Provided you’re not constantly launching the car in this manner, a lithium-ion battery pack can reportedly deliver up to 144 miles of range on a single charge. This centralizes the mass of the car, and thus its rotation point, close to the driver’s hips. These cleverly positioned batteries enable the car to travel over 240km on one charge.

Nissan bills the Esflow as a concept, but we’re betting some of the ideas incorporated into the car work their way into future production vehicles.
