Infiniti Previews 4 Future Models, Sleek Vision Qe Electric Concept
Infiniti is finally going electric, and it's sticking to sedans to do it.
Infiniti on Tuesday revealed the first steps in a new era for the brand. With a promise to electrify "the majority" of its lineup by 2030, the Japanese brand showed off a quartet of models, including a stunning all-electric sedan dubbed Vision Qe.
The Qe cuts a dramatic profile, a long and low four-door fastback—yes, that's a hatchback. This concept previews the brand's first EV, which will be produced at the Canton, Mississippi plant. Infiniti has kept the surfacing clean and organic, while there's ample lighting elements up front. A reworked "grille" design is an evolution of the brand's current curved design, with a peak in the lower section mirroring the Infiniti badge. As for the badge itself, it's now a three-dimensional design, as seen on the QX Monograph concept earlier this year. As the logo has symbolized a road heading off into the distance, this is an appropriate remix to our eyes.
Speaking of the QX Monograph, it previews next year's QX80 flagship SUV. Expect a cleaner exterior design replete with a light-up badge and a full-width taillight design inspired by ripples on water. As for the cabin, Infiniti says it "will pair opulent materials with cutting-edge technology to deliver extraordinary comfort and convenience for all three rows."
Further back, we get our first look at the QX65 crossover coupe. Based on the name alone, this should be a svelte coupe-over built on the same platform as the QX60. The chopped roofline means this one will stick to just two rows, however.
Last but not least, the Vision QXe should follow up the Qe with a more market-friendly SUV shape.
