Future of INFINITI, Electric Cars by 2021
Someday in the near future you could find an electric INFINITI car parked in your driveway. Recently Nissan Chief Executive Officer Hiroto Saikawa announced at the Automotive News World Congress, that INFINITI will introduce new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021. INFINITI has plans to launch its first pure electric vehicle in the same year. Future INFINITI vehicles will also include a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles.
New INFINITI e-POWER technology features a small gasoline engine that charges a high-output battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source. This innovative powertrain provides the convenience of refueling with gasoline while offering the same driving experience as a pure EV.
As INFINITI works to develop an entirely new level of electrified driving performance it is also incorporating stunning new designs, such as the Q Inspiration concept model revealed at the North American Auto show earlier this month. With a focus on improving low-emission technology and the addition of new electrified INFINITI vehicles, the company anticipates more than half its global sales will be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.
Our Houston INFINITI Dealership is looking forward to adding electrified vehicles into our lineup of new INFINITI Cars and SUVs. Until that time we will keep you informed with updates from INFINITI Motor Company.
