Excited to see what the unveiled Infiniti Hybrid Sports Car will look like. So far from the teaser picture, I see a lot of Infiniti Essence design features, which is a good thing, hopefully it will look a lot like the Infiniti Essence concept.




Just the Facts:

* Infiniti's new sports-car concept will preview the brand's future design language.
* The concept also will showcase Infiniti's first application of a range-extending hybrid powertrain.
* Infiniti says its intent is to "extend the potential for high-performance, low-emissions electric cars."


YOKOHAMA, Japan — Infiniti, Nissan's upscale brand, has released two teaser images of a new hybrid sports-car concept that it will unveil next March at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show. Infiniti says its intent is to "extend the potential for high-performance, low-emissions electric cars."

Infiniti's new sports-car concept will preview the brand's future design language, beyond the Essence and the Etherea. The concept also will showcase Infiniti's first application of a range-extending hybrid powertrain, "to push the boundaries where performance and the environment intersect," according to the company.

Infiniti already sells a standard hybrid model, the M35h, and is readying a pure electric car based on the Nissan Leaf for the 2012 New York Auto Show.

The range-extended Infiniti hybrid sports-car concept showcases a third "green" application, one that, similar to the Chevrolet Volt, uses the gasoline engine primarily to extend the range of the electric motor and battery pack.
