It looks like Infiniti is jumping on the all-electric car bandwagon and is reportedly working on an electric performance model.
The new EV will be revealed as a concept at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show to give us an idea of what we can expect of the production model, which is slated to arrive sometime in 2019.
In an interview with , Infiniti’s Design boss Alfonsa Albaisa confirmed that the new standalone EV won’t be related to the Nissan Leaf or any other vehicle in the Infiniti lineup and will instead ride on its own unique platform. It will, however, be partly inspired by the Infiniti Prototype 9 that debuted at the 2017 Monterey Car Week & Concours d’Elegance.
It’s not quite clear what form the new Infinti EV will take — will it be a sports sedan akin to the Tesla Model S or a sports coupe like the Emerg-E concept of 2012 (pictured)? — but Infiniti boss Roland Krueger revealed to the English publication earlier that he’s already driven an early prototype, describing it as “very good”. Why wouldn’t he?
