Detroit 2019: Infiniti Previews The QX Inspiration Concept

Infiniti has released two coloured images for their upcoming all-electric (EV) vehicle, which is set to be officially unveiled at the Detroit 2019 motor show.  

Karim Habib, Executive Design Director at Infiniti says, "QX Inspiration is the beginning of a new era for Infiniti, and an illustration of where we want to go with the brand. New technology has given us the opportunity to evolve our design philosophy – and the new vehicle communicates the 'serene strength' at our core."

Without releasing images of the interior, Infiniti says the cabin of the QX Inspiration concept has hand-crafted using traditional techniques and a choice of materials inspired by a subtle Japanese sensuality. New interior technology follows the Japanese hospitality principle of ‘omotenashi’ creating a welcoming environment, while assisting drivers and connecting occupants to the world around them.

While Infiniti is set to just unveil another concept vehicle, traditional premium manufacturers already have production-ready EV SUV offerings- Audi recently launched the e-tron, Mercedes-Benz will offer the EQC by the end of the year, and Jaguar i-Pace is supporting the all-electric Formula E championship with its own one-make race.

Volvo meanwhile is set to launch an all-electric XC40, the first EV model to bear the iron mark symbol on the grille.   

Infiniti will share more details on the QX Inspiration concept on the opening day of Detroit 2019, scheduled for January 14th.
