Gorgeous Performance: Infiniti’s EV Sedan

Previewing the First of 4 New Models: The Vision Qe

Infiniti may be behind the times when it comes to electric vehicles, however they are hoping to make a grand entrance with their debut. The Vision Qe concept, which is being showcased this week at Japan Mobility, gives us a sneak peek of what’s to come. According to Infiniti, their first electric vehicle will be a “sleek” sedan that will retain many of the design elements seen in the concept.

The Infiniti Vision Qe is introducing a new iteration of the brand’s “Artistry in Motion” design language, complete with its signature single fluid motion feature. This line runs from the hood, over the fenders, and onto the rear. The iconic Infiniti “double arch” grille motif is still present, but designers have swapped out the traditional grille insert for unique lighting elements that stretch across the entire front bumper.

The ultra-slim, hook-like headlights extending onto the front fenders are part of Infiniti’s “digital piano key” design. The large lower chin on the front bumper is boldly styled and features LED lighting to emphasize its angular shape. Even the Infiniti logo on the hood is illuminated, completing the look.

Details on the important stuff, like horsepower, battery capacity, and range, are nonexistent. But Infiniti assures that this will be a “performance” vehicle with an “engaging all-electric drive.” Taking a look at their current lineup, the most impressive and stimulating cars they have are the Q50 and Q60 Red Sport models, offering 400 horsepower. This leaves much room for advancement.

The Vision Qe will be Infiniti’s initial production electric vehicle (EV), however the exact date of its release is unknown. An SUV to come after the sedan, and a pair of additional petrol models will become part of the Infiniti lineup starting from 2021.

A freshly redesigned Infiniti QX80 is scheduled to launch in 2024, taking after the QX Monograph model which was showcased this year. Additionally, a revised edition of the QX65 crossover coupe, based off of the existing QX60, featuring styling similar to that of the QX55, will join the collection in 2024.
