Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept Shows Up in First Official Images

Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept Shows Up in First Official Images”

INFINITI has revealed its Qs Inspiration concept ahead of next week's Shanghai motor show, with the all-electric model previewing an emissions-free production sedan that could be the replacement for the Q50.

The Qs Inspiration sport sedan concept follows the QX Inspiration crossover, which made its debut at the 2019 Detroit auto show, and the Q Inspiration sedan that bowed at the 2018 Detroit auto show. The long and thick beltline lifts the sedan higher, even though Infiniti promises a low center of gravity from its electric powertrain. It has the layout of a sports sedan with an elevated driving position and high-performance electrified all-wheel drive (e-AWD) power.

Christian Meunier, Chairman of INFINITI, comments: "For 30 years INFINITI has built a reputation for introducing new technology that delights and gives confidence to drivers".

China's automakers have to sell more new-energy vehicles including battery electric cars or plug-in electric hybrids for conforming to the official quotas of production aimed at strengthening environment and smog reduction.

Infiniti officials have said that from 2021 every model launched will be either an all-electric vehicle or e-Power hybrids, underlining Nissan's previously announced plan to make Infiniti primarily an electrified brand.

In the luxury sector, Infiniti will be rivaling with the top-selling Model S and Model X by Tesla Inc, along with other models due to be released in coming months by Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Lexus.

Its design, especially the interior, would be majorly different to present models, design chief Karim Habib stated.

At the same time, competition is increasing in China's electric vehicle market with a barrage of new models coming from startups such as Nio and WM Motor plus offerings of several established automakers.

"It will have a flat floor, and if you are a passenger you can cross your legs or stretch out your legs", Habib informed Reuters. The final verdict will be out after seeing the display at Shanghai auto show.
