Infiniti performance electric vehicle to debut in Detroit

Infiniti performance electric vehicle to debut in Detroit”

However, unlike the Nissan LEAF-based, suped-up Inifiniti LE from a ~six years ago (that was seemingly cancelled and re-started a half-dozen times...much to our annoyance), Autocar reports that Infiniti design lead Alfonsa Albaisa says it will be different this time.

Infiniti's chief of design, Alfonso Albaisa, confirmed the automaker's plans to show a new EV in Detroit in a recent interview with Autocar. Instead it will get its own unique platform.

He said that at the Monterey vehicle week, the annual event where Infiniti showed its Prototype 9, a classic race car-styled machine powered by an electric motor.

The UK mag added that earlier this year, Infiniti boss Roland Krueger told the publication that an electric model was coming and that he had already driven an early prototype that was "very good".

Infiniti Emerg-e Concept Infiniti Emerg-e Concept New "performance" EV to debut from Infiniti at the NAIAS in Detroit in January - production in 2019! Krueger said that it was important that an EV maintained Infiniti's values of performance and handling.

Krueger also referred to parent company Nissan's expertise in electric vehicles.

We don't know much else at this stage, but we do know that Infiniti is late to the party on this, like a lot of auto makers.

Infiniti's last foray into full electrification was a concept revealed in 2012.
