2011 Infiniti M preview

Infiniti has revealed the next generation M model with a virtual presentation at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The 2011 Infiniti M has an exterior design inspired by the Essence Concept and will go on sale in Spring 2010.

2011 Infiniti MThe 2011 Infiniti M was revealed at the 59th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance through a unique video mapping process, in which a ‘virtual M’ was created on a 3D form.

It is the world’s first ‘virtual only’ (no physical vehicle) automotive application of this technology.

The third generation M will make its official public debut later this year and is scheduled to go on sale starting from Spring 2010.

The 2011 Infiniti M features a completely redesigned body, with sports saloon proportions and new styling with a low front end and deeply sculpted wings inspired by the Infiniti Essence concept car.

The new M interior will be characterized by the use of innovative materials, an advanced climate control system, superior audio and an enhanced quality feel.

Like the current Infiniti M, the next-generation design will be offered with V8 and V6 engines. The 2011 M models will be designated the Infiniti M56 and Infiniti M37 respectively, reflecting their more powerful, larger displacement engines. For Western Europe, the M56 will be replaced by a V6 performance diesel.

Despite improved performance from the new engine line-up, fuel consumption will be reduced. Technical highlights will include the Side-Collision Prevention (SCP) system, which alerts the driver if another vehicle is detected during an intended lane change and helps prevent a potential collision by moving the vehicle toward the center of the original lane of travel.
