Environmentalists looking for a fun EV to drive are going to love the Nissan ESFLOW. The Nissan ESFLOW is a concept car featured at the recent Tokyo Motor Show. The concept was created by Nissan to show what a zero-emissions sports car would look like and how it would perform.

The answers to those questions are "good" and "surprisingly good." Nissan's ESFLOW is compact and streamlined, sharing a few design traits with Nissan's Z series. The interior of the Nissan ESFLOW features gold leather and suede seats sculpted into the car. The immobile seats might be an issue if the pedals and steering wheel weren't able to electronically move forwards and backwards. The ESFLOW is powered by two electric engines mounted to each wheel on the rear axle. The concept has a zero to 60 times of five seconds and can get 150 miles on a single charge.
