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.
