A new Concept in Detroit will anticipate first Infiniti standalone electric vehicle
Infiniti is completing the project to launch its first standalone electric model in 2019. The car will be anticipated by a concept that will be on display as world premiere at Naias in Detroit next January.
The news was confirmed to Autocar by Nissan's global design manager, Alfonso Albaisa, according to which the model will not be a variant of the other cars currently present in the Infiniti range, but it will be a completely new car.
The Infiniti Electric will also be developed on a new platform and not on the newly introduced platform of the second-generation Nissan Leaf.
The forms will resume part of the Prototype 9 that Infiniti has exhibited at the recent Monterey Week and it will also be based on the Emerg-E Concept on display at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012.
