At the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Infiniti will present an electric performance concept car that gives indication on the design direction for future electric models.



The study will signal the company’s performance intent as the line-up moves towards electrification from 2021.

The teaser images shows an asymmetrical design with a single seat and a distinctive surface treatment with clean surfaces and sharp edges.

The concept, developed by the design teams in Japan, UK and US, is the first project to come to fruition under the direction of Karim Habib, who joined Infiniti as new executive design director last year.

He described the new concept as providing clues to where the INFINITI brand is heading.

“Electrification means performance – electrified cars will be powerful, efficient, and a joy to drive, and the new concept is a physical representation of INFINITI’s electrified performance future.”

The new concept will be revealed at Pebble Beach on 23 August 2018.
