Nissan's ESFLOW production concept sportifies the Leaf

It's tempting to think of sports cars as carnivores, but Nissan's ESFLOW electric production concept is more of a herbivore. Despite its aggressive look, inside it's really just a Leaf.

The ESFLOW electric concept car, which is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, is Nissan's way of taking its Leaf electric car and making it appealing to people besides my Grandma.

Underneath the hood, the ESFLOW is basically stuffed with Leaf guts twice over, using two motors (one for each back wheel) instead of just one, powering it from zero to 60 in under five seconds. It's also got some extra lithium-ion batteries that boost its range to 150 miles, and of course boasts the Leaf's extra-quick charge time.

While the ESFLOW is described by Nissan as a concept, it's also described by Nissan as 'production ready,' so feel free to let your imagination run wild.

Oh, and on a personal note, I'd like to apologize to my Grandma. She's got great taste in music, just not in cars.
