Infiniti unveiled its new Infiniti LE Concept, a near-production version of the performance luxury brand’s first zero emission luxury sedan. Making its world debut during a press conference at the 2012 New York International Auto Show, the Infiniti LE Concept combines an advanced electric vehicle drivetrain and wireless charging system with signature Infiniti luxury style. A production version of the LE Concept is expected to reach Infiniti showrooms in near-similar form within the next two years.
From inception, the LE Concept has been designed as a pure Infiniti, rather than as an electric vehicle with luxury appointments. It starts with an advanced luxury styled sedan body, not a converted hatchback – its bold exterior defined by its underlying high performance. The LE Concept’s dramatic exterior blends distinctive Infiniti design cues, such as its double-arch grille and crescent-cut rear-pillar, with EV aerodynamic efficiency to create a sleek, emotional silhouette. The large front grille features a solid finisher and a charge port hidden under the illuminated center Infiniti emblem. read more
