Infiniti is going to launch its first ever electric car in 2013. It has been confirmed by the company’s Senior Vice President, Mr Andy Palmer, during a ceremony held to mark the opening of the Infiniti Centre Piccadilly in London. And this being Infiniti, their EV will be a stylish, compact, high performance, five-seat luxury car with zero emissions technology. Here’s a sketch of the car in question which appears to be a four-door coupe.
Infiniti At 2010 Paris Motor Show
Infiniti’s passion for cars – and the art, craft and technology that goes into making them so special – is given full rein at the Paris Motor Show with the debut of the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) G Cabrio Concept.Infiniti’s most seductive car, appropriately unveiled in one of Europe’s most romantic cities, builds on the fine looks and sporting nature of the production G Cabrio to raise the temperature in the luxury cabriolet stakes.
Resplendent in new Malbec Black – a pearlescent black paint with red hints – and Monaco Red leather interior complemented by unique new cabin inlays inspired by the finessed craftsmanship of samurai armour, the ultimate G Cabrio in concept form is a bespoke and very exclusive fulfilment of Infiniti design values.
As well as previewing a dramatic new look and classically luxurious cabin, the world’s sexiest four-seat cabriolet with electric folding hard-top – probably – provides a tantalising vision of a new range of Infiniti models to extend the Japanese brand’s reach further into the performance car market.
The Paris debut follows on from the unveiling in the USA in August of the first production Infiniti Performance Line variant, the G Coupé, with which the IPL badge has been launched in North America.
