There's been much speculation on the look of Infiniti's new EV - will it be designed like Nissan's Leaf, or have an entirely fresh design?
We finally have a sneak peak at the all new upcoming Infiniti Electric Vehicle. The image dropped on Motor Trend's website yesterday. You can see it here.
According to MT: "As far back as last October's Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn hinted that a stylish, compact, performance-oriented four-seat Infiniti with zero emissions was being developed in Japan."
"Expected to be based on a modified version of the Leaf platform but with a slightly more powerful motor, the Infiniti EV illustration at least looks to employ intriguing design elements -- like the C-pillar -- from the Infiniti Essence first seen at the Geneva show in 2009."
The sketch suggests the rear of Infiniti's EV will look more like the back of a Prius sedan. No hatchback version for Inifiniti's EV? For now, there doesn't seem to be one in the works. When the final production model drops, this may change.
Don't expect to see the Infiniti EV on the road for several years yet, but with the popularity of electric cars jumping through the roof these days it might be available in the near future.
