Infiniti wants to build an electric car based on the Q concept
Q Inspiration Concept previews EV coming in the next five years
Infiniti is planning to build five news cars in China over the next five years – and today it’s announced one will be an EV, based on an “all-new electrified vehicle platform influenced by the stunning Q Inspiration concept car”.
The Q is “the first manifestation of Infiniti’s new form language for an era of advanced powertrains,” says the company. Its boss Roland Krueger said Nissan’s luxury arm had China in mind when it was designing the Q, which he says “shows a very sporty, performance-oriented electric concept, with a much bigger interior space”.
Five years is still a way off, so predictably details are scant (we don’t even know whether it’ll make it to Europe or the US, let alone the UK in RHD), but we’d wager on something to compete with the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and Jaguar I-Pace.
Say what you want about Infiniti, but there’s no denying it does a good concept. So if the eventual production car looks anything like the Q, we’ll be happy. Happier still if it has the tech to back it up.
