https://www.motor1.com/news/240194/niss ... -revealed/ has a few pics. I found more info and interior pics at https://www.dongfeng-nissan.com.cn/car/ ... o-emission. (I can't read Chinese worth beans.)

IIRC, Sylphy is roughly the equivalent of a Sentra in the US.

It's essentially a Leaf with a restyled rear. Same drivetrain, AFAIK.

Looks somewhat like a sedan version of the LEAF.

Well, no. The Sylphy is actually what is called the Sentra over here, called the "B17" in Nissan-speak. The two cars have little in common.

While its 38 kWH battery is only slightly smaller than the present Leaf, I'd like to know what compromises were made to cram it into a car not originally designed as an EV. For example, how much of the ICEV version's trunk space remains?
Blue Ocean 2012 Leaf SV, lost that 1st bar at 34 months/26,435 miles. Lease returned 2 months later. Final LeafStat figures: 225 Gids, 17.44 kWH, SOC 91.89%, SOH 82.36%, 69.49% HX, 54.57 Ahr, battery temp 61.8 F.
Now driving a 2015 VW eGolf SEL.
