Just after last year's Detroit Auto Show, Infiniti announced its plans to . At the 2019 Detroit show later this month, we'll see a concept that previews the automaker's EV design language, and yes, you guessed it, it's a crossover.
Meet the QX Inspiration concept, an electric crossover that "represents Infiniti's plans for high-performance electrified vehicles, offering complete range confidence while signaling a new era for Infiniti design enabled by new technology," according to a statement the automaker released Friday.
Without any sort of powertrain or range details to go on, not to mention the fact that this is purely a concept car, we can't speak much to the "high-performance" or "complete range confidence" aspects. Hopefully Infiniti will give us a more realistic look into its EV powertrain intentions when the QX Inspiration debuts later this month.
The concept has a high-riding stance, with slim lighting elements and a totally closed-off front fascia (EVs don't need grilles, after all). The QX Inspiration looks to have a two-door layout, and of course, a prominent and illuminated badge.
Infiniti says the concept's EV-specific platform "enables the formation of spacious, lounge-like interiors." For the QX Inspiration concept, specifically, "the cabin has been hand-crafted using traditional techniques and a choice of materials inspired by a subtle Japanese sensuality," according to Infiniti.
That's a lot of fluffy PR speak, for sure. But we'll get a closer look inside the QX Inspiration concept soon. Infiniti will reveal its EV concept on Monday, January 14, the first press day of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
