The Chairman and Global President for the INFINITI brand, Roland Krueger, has announced that the company is now in the process of developing a new all-electric vehicle platform based around the Q Inspiration concept car design.
The confirmation of what had long been alluded to by company execs came at a “special preview event” in Beijing (China). The event also showcased various company tech.
As well as the news about an all-electric vehicle platform based around the Q Inspiration concept car, the INFINITI brand exec revealed that the INFINITI QX50 would be 1 of 5 new models to be manufactured in China over just the next 5 years.
A press release on the matter provides more: “Whilst no further details have been revealed, vehicles leveraging this new electrified platform are expected to be sold in global markets. The Q Inspiration represents INFINITI’s new form language for an era of advanced powertrains. It features clear and concise exterior lines with dynamic and confident proportions based on classical saloon forms with a coupe-like appearance and an elongated silhouette. The interior follows a minimalist approach, with a clean design enveloping the driver and passengers in a serene and comfortable environment.”
Production models will of course be far simpler in design (in many regards) than the concept car in question, but the concept car should still give one an idea of what the brand is aiming for.
