What Do You Call A Nissan Leaf In China? How About Venucia E30?

Despite lower-than-predicted sales of its Leaf battery electric hatchback, Nissan is pushing ahead with its aggressive electric-car program.

At the Guangzhou Auto Show yesterday, its Chinese partner unveiled its own plug-in electric car, the Venucia E30.

And, surprise, surprise, it looks just like a Nissan Leaf–with a garish plastic “grille” over the charging port on the nose.

As seen in China Auto Web, the electric Venucia E30 has the same bodywork, dimensions and specifications, floor-mounted lithium-ion battery pack, and 80-kilowatt electric motor as the current Nissan Leaf.

The E30 is the production version of a concept car shown at the Beijing Auto Show earlier this year and deemed the Venucia E-Concept.

As far as we can tell, the change from the concept car to the production version appear to consist largely of a name change.
