The automaker’s Q naming strategy was in full force, with the exceptional Infiniti FX (http://www.infinitihoffman.com/
Of course, it was Infiniti’s vehicle lineup that stole the spotlight at the Geneva Motor Show. The Q50, for instance, is a new sedan that was shown off with a 3.5L hybrid powertrain and a 2.2L diesel engine. It drew attention with its styling in particular, with headlights designed to mimic human eyes and a double-arch grille. It also features Infiniti’s new Direct Adaptive Steering technology.
There was also a revolutionary concept car on display. The Infiniti LE Concept is the automaker’s first entirely electric vehicle. Featuring dramatic styling and claiming to deliver “dynamic luxury,” the production version should be available in Europe within two years, and it should redefine what an electric vehicle should be, providing the luxury trappings for which the automaker is known along with superb efficiency.
John de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, said, “We promised new models with smaller, lower CO2 engines and now we are starting to deliver them.”
The only caveat is that these models were shown at a European auto show, and these are vehicles that are confirmed for release in Europe. While it’s not yet known whether these models will come to the United States, they are, at the very least, a glimpse at the future of the automaker’s lineup — a future that is as efficient as it is luxurious.
