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:

The nice thing about an electric is that the recharging source doesn't change the 0-60 times. Stick a 5hp outboard in it to power a generator and this infinity would still blow the socks off alternatives.

Small diesel, small gas, turbine, hamsters. Long as they'll charge the battery they'll do the job.

Provided you're happy to limp home on 5hp or wait around in a parking lot while the battery charges if you manage to run the battery down. Would it extend the battery capacity by constantly charging it at red lights? Yes, but by how much?
