INFINITI Motor Company will introduce new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021, said Nissan Chief Executive Officer Hiroto Saikawa at the Automotive News World Congress on 16th January 2018.
Customers can expect beautifully designed vehicles like the Q Inspiration concept shown in Detroit, with a whole new level of electrified driving performance as an evolution of INFINITI's current powertrains.
INFINITI will offer a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles – demonstrating the full range of ultra-low emission vehicle technology available to INFINITI as the premium brand within the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
INFINITI's proprietary e-POWER technology features a small gasoline engine that charges a high-output battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source and providing the convenience of refueling with gasoline while offering the same driving experience as a pure EV.
As a result of this emphasis on low-emission technology, INFINITI expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.
