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 (
). 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 “
” 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:

Yeah I admit i didn't recognize that 30,000 watts of power was that few horsepower but it brings up a great point, that of how dense gasoline is in energy and how we're generally squandering it now driving bloated, heavy, highly powered cars most often hauling one person around. There's a great article on the subject here.
How much do we really need if we want to have a ready supply of oil in the future and morally how can we justify squandering so much oil given all the environmental devastation oil causes?
Besides that, you miss the real selling point of running a gas turbine in a hybrid car beyond lighter weight and fuel flexibility, that is sounding like a jet airplane when the battery is charging. ;-) Capstone is offering these systems for sale in hybrid cars right now.
