INFINITI Motor Company has just announced that it’s going to have a crack at the electric car market. And why not? Who doesn’t love a bit of style with their sustainability?
Inspired by the QI Inspiration concept car that was revealed at the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year, INFINITI plans on rolling out its own electrified automobile over the next five years. These models will be built in China and is one of five new models that will be manufactured between now and 2023.
“The Q Inspiration concept car takes the traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution,” said Karim Habib, INFINITI executive design director.
“A shift towards smarter, more compact and less intrusive powertrains; we were able to create an alternative form with flowing gestures, more engaging in character and more enriching in experience.”
An offshoot of Nissan, it’s not entirely surprising that INFINITI is getting in on the electric car game, particularly as the Nissan Leaf has been in production since 2010. I’m personally itching to see how this one turns out.
