Announced last week just three weeks ahead of its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Nissan ESFLOW Concept two-seat all-electric sports car has already created quite a stir.
With a lightweight Aluminium chassis, composite body and the same laminated lithium-ion battery pack found in the 2011 Nissan Leaf, it promises a range of at least 150 miles per charge and exhilarating performance.
We know from a few choice comments by Nissan’s François Bancon and Andy Palmer in live web chats live from Japan on Monday morning that the ESFLOW is aimed as an experimental sports car base to give Nissan a way of testing future technologies rather than a direct competitor to existing electric sports cars like the 2011 Tesla Roadster.

Web chats are of course, very sterile environments to ask questions to automakers, but we’ve been lucky enough to be invited to Frankfurt tomorrow to meet François Bancon, Division General Manager, Global Product Strategy & Advanced Product-Planning for Nissan.
As the only U.S. based site reporting from the preview, you can be sure we'll have lots of juicy details no-one else has.
We’ll also be getting a sneak-peek of the 2011 Nissan ESFLOW Concept nearly two weeks before its official unveiling in Geneva.
You can be sure we’ll ask all the usual questions, such as how large the battery pack is, if the ESFLOW will ever make it to production and how much it would cost to buy should it ever reach production.
But what do you want to know? Post your questions below in the Comments before midnight on Thursday 17 February and we’ll be sure to ask the Nissan team.
