Zero emission luxury: Infiniti LE Concept, brand’s first electric luxury sedan

“Production Intent” Concept Previews Infiniti’s Upcoming Luxury Electric Vehicle


Infiniti unveiled its new Infiniti LE Concept, brand’s first zero emission luxury sedan. Making its world debut 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, announced the company in a statement.

Luxury sedan is combining signature Infiniti design cues with EV aerodynamic efficiency. One of the key features and innovations of the Infiniti LE Concept is a leading-edge compact Lithium-ion battery technology and an exceptional acceleration and re-acceleration, providing a new level of luxury driving experience.

Put also on the list: the “Smart Hospitality“, featuring a quiet, luxurious Infiniti interior and next-gen Infiniti Connection, Infiniti Personal Assistant, the EV connected services, plus an intuitive home-based Wireless Charging System with Intelligent Park Assist.

“Infiniti is about a unique fusion of performance and hospitality, and a distinct vision that challenges convention. Part of that vision, part of our challenger mindset, is a belief that the future of luxury is sustainable luxury,” said Carlos Ghosn, president and chief executive officer, Nissan Motor. “No other luxury brand has the corporate EV experience, the advanced battery technology, or the sustainable product credibility to claim a leadership position in zero emission luxury. No one except Infiniti.”
