Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Infiniti has given a glimpse of its electrified future with its QX Inspiration concept.

Revealed ahead of its full debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this month, the concept ‘represents Infiniti’s plans for high-performance electrified vehicles’.

According to Infiniti, the development of new electric vehicle platforms has allowed it to create ‘spacious, lounge-like interiors’. As such, the cabin of the QX Inspiration has been designed to be as comfortable as possible, with hand-crafted techniques used throughout.

Karim Habib, Executive Design Director for Infiniti describes the QX Inspiration as “the beginning of a new era for Infiniti, and an illustration of where the brand wants to go.

“New technology gives the opportunity to evolve Infiniti’s design philosophy – and the new vehicle communicates the ‘serene strength’ at our core.”

Though Infiniti has given no details surrounding the vehicles power output nor electric range, it claims that is will be ‘offering complete range confidence’. In order to keep up to speed with rivals, that means it’ll need to offer the current target for most manufacturers of 300 miles.

The interior follows the Japanese hospitality principle of ‘omotenashi’, which means that drivers will be sat in a ‘welcoming environment’. Rival Lexus also follows the principle of omotenashi in its latest models.

The QX Inspiration will make its public premiere at the North American International Auto Show, better known as the Detroit motor show, which commences on January 14.
