L’Automobile revealed Infiniti’s new electric sports car, called Emerg-e, through what appear to be patent images.
To be really honest with you, we thought this electric sports car would be a stupid, weird eco-car. But it so isn’t. It looks like a full on supercar this thing, especially from the sides it looks awesome. The Emerg-e appears to be a direct rival for the new Honda NSX.
The face is familiar, as it’s pretty much the same as the Infiniti Essence concept. But from there backwards, it’s all new and amazing. The slightly fat rear-end is where the engine – well, electric motors – are located.
That’s right, the Emerg-e is a mid-engined electric sports car. You can realize that by the little ‘e’ in its name, or by the absence of exhaust pipes at the back.
There’s no details available yet on the powertrain and the performance figures. We shall find out soon enough though, as the car is set for debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, which is less than a month away.
