Electric Infiniti executive saloon to enter production within two years

By / 9 years ago / International News / No Comments

The LE Concept uses Infinit’s latest battery and powertrain technology. Its lithium ion battery is fitted under the passenger compartment to offer a low centre of gravity and avoid reducing passenger or luggage space,while a 240lb.ft electric motor offers smooth and powerful acceleration.

Infiniti Americas vice president Ben Poore explained: ‘As a “production intent” concept, most of what you see in the LE Concept will become a reality, including its zero emission powertrain, advanced telematics, cutting-edge design, advanced connected services and premium appointments.

‘Infiniti believes the future of luxury is sustainable luxury and we intend to continue taking a leadership role, building on the foundation set by our advanced Infiniti M Hybrid and high-mpg Infiniti JX luxury crossover.’

Infiniti said the production version uses a rigid new platform designed specifically for electric drive, instead of being adapted from a conventionally powered version. Advanced features include wireless charging, comprehensive information services with remote charging and climate control and a fast charge port for fast ‘refuelling’ times.

Nissan President and chief executive officer Carlos Ghosn said at the presentation today: ‘For those who wonder how a zero emission vehicle like the Infiniti LE Concept will fit into their lifestyles, the answer is simple: perfectly. 

‘With a range of current and future stainable vehicles faithful to the Infiniti promise of Inspired Performance, Infiniti is well positioned for the growing demand for clean, efficient and exciting vehicles. In a rapidly changing world, Infiniti is well ahead of the game.’
