Infiniti plug-in hybrid concept teaser

Infiniti teases plug-in hybrid sports car concept ahead of its 2012 debut.

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."

Infiniti releases pair of teaser images of its plug-in hybrid sports car concept.

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.

I was a witness in the Geneva auto show and this car looks fantastic. I was so lucky i was able to see this hybrid sports car! Based on the sheets, it can perform like some other not-so-green sports car. This would be a good pick i guess. Infiniti did not release the price range for this unit. I think it would be better if it will be cheaper than a sports car that can do a 100 in less than 5 seconds. Auto parts with discount would also be better since this would be their first production hybrid sports car. Hoping to hear more from this and its major difference from LEAF and Nissan's ESFLOW.
