Nissan turns over a new Leaf with China-made Sylphy electric
Added by admin 26/04/18
Aaron Turpen - April 25,
has debuted the Sylphy Zero Emission electric car at Auto China
2018 in Beijing as the first Nissan EV made in China for Chinese
consumers. The new model is based on the Nissan Leaf and has a
range of about 388 km (241 miles) per the Chinese range testing
"The new Sylphy Zero Emission is the next step in our
electrification strategy for China," said Jose Munoz, Nissan's
chief performance officer and chairman of the Management
Committee for China. "The new Sylphy Zero Emission will be
Nissan's first mass-production electric vehicle for the China
market and one of 20 electrified models that we plan to introduce
over the next five years."
Using the Leaf's platform, the Sylphy is on a full-sized
wheelbase and offers more interior room than the compact Leaf.
Connectivity within the car allows audio and video in the Sylphy
to be controlled from a mobile phone.
Nissan has otherwise kept information about the car's specifics
close to its chest, including battery pack size, charging style
and times, and so forth. More information is promised closer to
the car's release later in 2018. Meanwhile you can watch the full
launch in the video below (skip to the 1:35 mark).
