Nissan has unveiled the Nissan Sylphy Zero Emission, Nissan’s first electric car made in China for Chinese consumers, at Auto China 2018.The new model offers the exciting performance of a 100 per cent electric powertrain. Its advanced technologies and spacious cabin offer convenience and comfort. Drivers will be able to enjoy an extended drive range of 338 kilometers, according to official Chinese standards.
“The new Sylphy Zero Emission is the next step in our electrification strategy for China,” said José Muñoz, Nissan’s chief performance officer and chairman of the Management Committee for China, who unveiled the model in Beijing. “The new Sylphy Zero Emission will be Nissan’s first mass-production electric vehicle for the China market and one of the 20 electrified models that we plan to introduce over the next five years.”
The new car is the result of more than 70 years of electric vehicle research and development at Nissan, and more than 25 years of battery research, development and manufacturing experience. More than 320,000 Nissan LEAF customers globally are testimony to the strength of the expertise that has gone into the new model.
The Sylphy Zero Emission embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society. Built on the same platform as the Nissan LEAF – the world’s best-selling electric car – the Sylphy Zero Emission inherits the LEAF’s core technologies while offering the stability and reliability of a full-size wheelbase.
The EV platform allows the battery to be placed under the seats. This results in a comfortable, spacious cabin with class-leading legroom. Multilayer ergonomic seating with heating options further enhances comfort. A connectivity feature allows the vehicle’s audio and video to be remote-controlled from a mobile phone.
The Nissan Sylphy Zero Emission will go on sale in China later in 2018. There are no current plans to sell this vehicle in Australia.
