Infiniti Teases Plug-in Hybrid Sports Car Concept
With all eyes on the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, Japanese automaker Infiniti slipped out a pair of teaser shots of a "highly advanced, range-extending electric sports car concept." According to Infiniti, the plug-in hybrid concept is "under development" and will be officially unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Infiniti describes its plug-in concept as a vehicle that "extends the potential for high performance, low emission electric cars." This plug-in concept is not Infiniti's upcoming LEAF-based electric sedan. Rather, it's a never-before-seen extended-range concept that Infiniti claims is the "natural next step" to "push the boundaries where performance and the environment intersect."
The concept's design seems to be inspired by the all-electric, rear-wheel-drive Nissan ESFLOW concept. The two-seat ESFLOW concept features dramatic styling, boasts a range of approximately 150 miles and rips from 0 to 60 miles per hour in "under five seconds." At this time, there's no additional info available on Infiniti's extended-range plug-in concept.
