Infiniti wows with its latest electric car concept

If you build it, they will come. Infiniti was hoping to save the official unveil of its Emerg-E concept car until next week's Geneva auto show, but the company has been kneecapped twice by leaks.
 
Nearly two weeks ago, the design of the vehicle was leaked via design patent drawings submitted to The Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM). This weekend, however, The Full Monty was released in the form of official photos of the vehicle.
 
There isn't much to say about the official specs of the vehicle as we're still a week away from its official unveil, but it is known the that Emerg-E is a range-extended electric vehicle with a mid-mounted 1.2-liter gasoline engine to charge its batteries. Think of it as a Chevrolet Volt without the dumpy looks.
 
As for the styling of the Emerg-E, some say that it has a bit of Ferrari 458 Italia in its side profile and a bit of Lexus’ new “Predator” grille up front. However, the overall design of the vehicle should give the designers of the Acura NSX remake some sleepless nights.
 
For now, you can just ogle the pictures of Infiniti's supercar concept:

To bad its electric.

Nicely packaged garbage is still garbage. "Yay I can drive my car 80 miles before I sits for 2 days driving my electric bill through the roof!"

Wish the stupid US government would quit forcing electric trash on people who don't want it, and stop taxing/mandating the hell out of oil companies.

your (shortsighted selfish ignorant) rant is invalidated by reading comprehension fail.

it has a gas engine as well.

Only an idiot would buy an EV if he needs to drive more than 100 miles a day.

So your post is invalid (on so many ways it's actually sad)

Not to mention that this is not a pure EV, but a range-extended EV, or the way hybrids should be designed.

This is a good thing that this design is catching on. I would probably buy one, but I'm guessing it will be well over $60k.

... and I obviously was not paying attention. Nissan. Sorry.
