Detroit Auto Show 2018
The Infiniti QX50 concept looks ready to goPowered by a variable compression turbo engine, this concept is pretty close to production.
The QX50 concept is one stage closer to production. We showed a similar car already which was called QX Inspiration, which gave inspiration to this design. And now we show the concept, which is very close to the production stage. This vehicle taps into the biggest single growth opportunity for us, which is the D SUV segment. Especially here in the US, but also in the rest of the world. You will see copiloting here in this vehicle, but we already offer autonomous driving technology within the Q50 and the Q60. Actually three years ago, we launched that already. You can drive the cars hands free about 60 kilometers an hour, or about 40 miles And this is something they're very, very proud of. Well, it's variable compression where the engineers have found a way to change the compression ratio, and actually the displacement of the engine seamlessly. What it does is it give the driver the power when he wants it, And the efficiency when they need it. And this is very important for us. So you have the output of approximately a V6 engine. And you have the consumption of a small [UNKNOWN] engine. So the best of both worlds really. And we will offer this car with [UNKNOWN] drive technologies the next step. Which makes us again the leader in the segment. And then just take a look at the car, it's beautiful. The design is outstanding. It exemplifies our design language that we have redefined for Infinity. So, going for all the future cars we will see, some of the features we will see here in this car.
