Nissan is set to reveal the Sylphy EV at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show next week. These images, from China’s PCauto, show a sedan that’s exactly how we’d expect an electric-powered Sylphy facelift to look like – just like a regular one but with a charging port and badges displaying its credentials.

The Sylphy EV’s front fascia is a combination of the facelifted US-market Sentra/Sylphy that debut in late 2015 (the headlamps) with the second-generation Leaf. The car’s U-shaped black portion and narrower V are from the Leaf, as is the lower front bumper.

No one would miss the location of the Sylphy EV’s charging port, which is prominently located just above the Nissan badge – it’s somehow more obvious/awkward here than on the Leaf. Besides that, Nissan’s ‘Zero Emissions’ badge can be found on the front doors and boot lid.

It is said that the battery-powered Sylphy will use a 109 hp electric motor that will push the car to a 144 km/h top speed. The Chinese website estimates a range of 200 to 250 km. The latest Leaf’s stats read 148 hp, 320 Nm and 378 km on the European cycle from a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery, up from late model first-gen‘s 250 km. Full details next week.
