Premium Automakers INFINITI plans to introduce new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021.

INFINITI Q Inspiration Concept @ 2018 NAIAS

Currently on show at 2018 NAIAS, the INFINITI Q Inspiration Concept has been named “Best Concept Vehicle” and awarded “Best Designed Interior” by EyesOn Design at the show. The Q Inspiration concept, a preview of INFINITI’s future form language and innovative drivetrain design, made its world debut a day prior.

 

The Q Inspiration Concept explores the future of the mid-size sedan segment with a combination of an innovative VC-Turbo powertrain, next-level autonomous drive technologies, and a unique human-centric interior. The sedan’s direct, clear lines are combined with bold, chiseled styling that will form the basis of the future of the INFINITI brand’s sedan design, with a coupe-like roofline and mid-size sedan proportions.

Inside, the cabin features plenty of room thanks to a minimalist design, with an emphasis on driver and passenger experience. INFINITI’s VC-Turbo engine, the world’s first production ready variable compression ratio engine, powers the Q Inspiration and allows for optimal performance on demand while optimizing fuel economy across the powerband, previewing future uses of variable compression drivetrains.

Paired with the latest ProPILOT suite of semi-autonomous driving systems, the Q Inspiration Concept allows the driver to delegate certain driving tasks to the vehicle’s systems and enjoy the experience of the human-centric cockpit, while retaining ultimate control of the vehicle.

Infiniti is Electrifying the way to the future

INFINITI will offer a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles in the near future, demonstrating the full range of low-emission vehicle technology available to INFINITI as the premium brand of Nissan Motor Company.

INFINITI’s proprietary e-POWER technology features a small gasoline engine that charges a high-output battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source and providing the convenience of refueling with gasoline while offering the same driving experience as a pure EV.

As a result of this emphasis on low-emission technology, INFINITI expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.
