Nissan hasn’t revealed details of battery pack yet but reports suggest that it will come with same electric motors from Leaf which produces 147 hp of power and 320 Nm of torque
Nissan officially revealed Sylphy Zero Emission sedan based on the second generation Leaf at the 2018 Beijing International Auto Show. This year we have seen so many manufacturers revealing lots of EV products exclusive for Chinese market as the EV market in the country is going to get bigger in coming years thanks to the government as they want to reduce pollution from regular combustion cars by replacing them with EVs to keep the country green.
Chinese market also demands more space especially for rear passengers, which is why Nissan designed Sylphy as a sedan. The Japanese manufacturer has made changes for the platform to increase space inside the cabin. Nissan hasn’t revealed specifications of Sylphy yet but the rear legroom will be class leading according to the manufacturer.
The design of Sylphy took inspirations from second generation Leaf as the signature V-shaped grille with sleek looking headlamps and wider air vents at the front gives the impression of a much bigger car. The side design is simple and the widows get chrome detailing. At the rear, Nissan has given big tail lamps with a chrome lining on the top of number plate holder.
Overall, the design of Sylphy is attractive. The interior design of Sylphy is not yet revealed but it will be similar to the Leaf hatchback which took inspirations from new Micra. The centre console get a touch screen which gives details about battery and also it will also be the infotainment screen which can be controlled via smartphone application. The seats design will be unique with comfort as priority and it will get heated and cooling option also.
Nissan hasn’t revealed details of battery pack yet but reports suggest that it will come with same electric motors from Leaf which produces 147 hp of power and 320 Nm of torque. The range of Sylphy is 338 km which is similar to 378 km of Leaf. But both are tested in different places so this could vary. Nissan placed batteries under the seats to keep low centre of gravity. The Sylphy is expected to enter Chinese market later this year and the company will launch 20 new electric cars by 2022.
