Infiniti flips the electric switch

Riley Riley

Infiniti will flip the switch and introduce new vehicles with electric powertrains from 2021.

The company will offer a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER (hybrid) vehicles that demonstrate the full range of low emission vehicle technology available.

Customers can expect beautifully-designed vehicles, like the Q Inspiration concept shown in Detroit, with a whole new level of electrified driving performance, Nissan chief exec Hiroto Saikawa told the Automotive News World Congress.

Infiniti’s proprietary range extender e-POWER technology features a small petrol engine that charges a high-output battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source, providing the convenience of re-fueling with petrol, while offering the same driving experience as a pure EV.

As a result of this emphasis on low emission technology, Infiniti expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.

Infiniti is Nissan’s premium brand in much the same way as Lexus it to Toyota.

The brand has been widely acclaimed for its daring design and innovative driver-assistance technologies.
