Infiniti confirms new electric vehicle platform based on the Q Inspiration concept car

Infiniti Chairman and Global President Roland Krueger said the new format gives the Q Inspiration much bigger interior space than a conventional sedan of the same size - a key concern for Chinese buyers, where a production version of the Q Inspiration is scheduled to go on sale.

Infiniti Q Inspiration is a sporty auto, which will be offered with enough interior space that was developed by a performance-oriented electric concept.

Without confirming the exact nature of the "electrified powertrains", the automaker announced that they will be launching a new sedan built on "an electrified platform based on Q Inspiration concept vehicle will go into production within the next five years". Representing the next step in Infiniti design and electrification, the Q Inspiration features clear and concise lines with dynamic and confident proportions.

Infiniti has announced it is developing a new electrified vehicle platform based on the Q Inspiration concept auto that was revealed back in January this year.


While the platform being developed will accommodate electrified powertrains, Infiniti didn't say which type will be employed on its upcoming sedan.

Infiniti has dropped some hints about its all-new architecture, including that at least some of the new models will be all-wheel drive and still have an on-board internal combustion engine. "With its long cabin, balanced proportions and muscular stance, the concept heralds in a new era for INFINITI models".

Q Inspiration before the Meridian Gate at the Forbidden City in Beijing. Prototype 9 blends modern technology and hand-crafted details paying tribute to the forebears of INFINITI. As part of our roadmap to electrify our portfolio, we anticipate that by 2025, more than 50% of new INFINITI vehicles sold globally and in China will be electrified.

INFINITI operates in China via a partnership with Dongfeng Motor Company Ltd. (DFL), China's largest automotive joint venture.
