Infiniti‘s new Etherea concept, unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show, takes the coupe-styled sedan trend and meshes it with the added functionality of a crossover. As this wasn’t enough, Nissan’s luxury brand added plenty of wild styling cues and even bills it as a hybrid.
Designed to attract younger luxury buyers, the Etherea is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 engine, mated to a supercharger and an electric motor. Making 245-hp, it uses the same twin-clutch setup as found in the Infiniti M Hybrid.
Infiniti tout the Etherea’s functionality, although there’s no mention of cargo room – an area where Infiniti SUVs and crossovers have always been lacking in.
Taking Infiniti’s already bold design language a step across the line, it’s not what we’d call ‘a looker’, however, knowing Infiniti its sure to make up for ‘out-there’ styling with driving dynamics that are hard to resist.
