Not much of the details were given by Nissan, they just said that the car will be having two motors mounted over and ahead of the rear axle of the car. The car has the conventional lithium-ion battery, placed between the axles for enhancing the improved handling. The size of the battery is still not known, but as per Nissan the battery will be having a range of 149 miles. Considering the fact that the Nissan Leaf has a 24 KW-hr pack, capable of delivering an EPA estimated fuel economy of 73 miles, the EsFlow surely is going to have a huge honkin’ battery.
