Nissan’s Sylphy Zero Emission is now available to order in China. First presented in Beijing this Spring, the EV Nissan built with Dongfeng owes much to the Leaf but is longer and has a range of 338 km. Prices start at 22,000 euros after incentives.
Buyers can order the Sylphy Zero Emission through Nissan joint venture with Dongfeng (Dongfeng Nissan). According to the Chinese testing cycle, range is at 338 kilometres as the Sylphy boasts an updated battery at 38 kWh. The performance is much like the old Leaf EV though with an 80 kW electric motor and a top speed of 144 kph.
The Sylphy has a full size wheelbase, leaving more leg room as Chinese buyers desire and comes as a sedan, not a hatchback such as the Leaf.
Prices for the Sylphy Zero Emission start at 166,000 yuan, about 22,000 euros after incentives and the order books are open as of today.
