As the first mid-ship sports car the marque has ever produced, Infiniti Emerg-e takes the Infiniti design vocabulary in a fresh, intriguing and convincing new direction.
Launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the Emerg-e concept also seamlessly blends supercar performance with the ability to function as a true electric vehicle.
The 402-horsepower mid-engined, twin electric motor-powered Infiniti Emerg-e is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 miles per hour in just 4.0 seconds – and from zero to 130 miles per hour in a single, seamless 30-second burst. Yet it also operates as a zero-emission urban transport over a 30-mile range.
Infiniti, which has enjoyed a major presence at the event for many years, will be showing a number of special vehicles in addition to the stunning Infiniti Emerg-e, including the Infiniti LE Concept luxury electric vehicle, the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 showcar, and the all-new 2013 IPL G Convertible – the second member of the Infiniti Performance Line.
In June, a fully functioning prototype version of the Infiniti Emerg-e made its bold global debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Infiniti Emerg-e stretches Infiniti’s already accomplished expertise in the areas of electric vehicles and alternative propulsion systems. Along with its advanced Infiniti M Hybrid luxury sedan, Infiniti recently announced that a production luxury electric vehicle, based on the Infiniti LE Concept, will join the line in 2014. Infiniti LE Concept’s compact EV platform maximizes interior space by placing the lithium-ion batteries under the passenger compartment floor, helping provide a low vehicle center of gravity for enhanced handling and maximizing trunk room without compromising front or rear seat passenger legroom or comfort.
