Infiniti’s Sports Car Concept: Power & Low Emissions

The development of Infiniti’s new advanced sports car concept, due for global reveal at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, continues daily. The concept promises to be lightweight, with the offer of low emissions. It will fit in perfectly with the new trend of fuel economy and performance combined. The sports car concept will be the first Infiniti to have not only a range-extender drive train but also one mounted in a mid-ship package for optimal weight distribution and therefore handling.

Infiniti already enjoys a lead in high performance, low emission technologies with its Infiniti M Hybrid. But the purpose of the Geneva concept is to explore what might be the next stage in how to deliver a vivid, engaging and sophisticated driving experience from an electrically-propelled vehicle. The mid-ship mechanical layout could be a vital ingredient.

The as yet unnamed car will minimize the traditional compromise between thrilling performance and sustainable mobility. Its style, content and mid-ship package are all new to Infiniti, although the character of this striking, sports car concept remain absolutely true to the brand, as does the direction of its innovative electric vehicle engineering which is to combine extreme, low emission open-road performance with zero emission operation in urban situations.

Further news of this exciting project will be released at its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. More information, high-res images and b-roll are available at www.media.infiniti.ca or upon request.
