Infiniti reveals electric vehicle concept

Infiniti has unveiled what it calls a “production intent” all-electric concept called the LE which will debut at the Paris Motor Show towards the end of next month.

Bernard Loire, vice president of Infiniti Europe, Middle East, India and Africa, said: “It is too early to confirm exactly when and where it will go on sale, but we are heartened by recent moves to encourage electric cars, such as France raising the purchase incentive from €5,000 to €7,000 per car.

“It is fitting that the LE Concept should make its European debut in Paris.”

A production version of the LE is expected to go on sale within the next two years and Infiniti intends to launch the car with wireless charging technology which can be installed at owners' homes.

The concept comes with a 100kW (132bhp electric motor which can deliver 325Nm (240lb ft) of torque. The target for the engineers was “impressive EV acceleration without sacrificing the range”, which is expected to be around 100 miles.

Infiniti says the LE can be charged from 0-80% within 30 minutes with a quick charger and an intelligent park assist feature will automatically align the car to its wireless charging pad.

Loire said: “A luxury car for a new generation of sustainable luxury buyers must not compromise on performance.

“Buyers want ‘green,’ but won’t settle for any aspect of the driving experience being less than that of their current luxury vehicles.”
