The announcement that Infiniti is developing “a new platform for electrified vehicles inspired by the Q Inspiration concept car” was made by the Roland Krueger -- Infiniti’s Chairman and Global President -- at a special 2018 Auto China preview event at the Infiniti Brand Experience Center in Beijing.
Krueger said that the new EV platform being developed by Infiniti -- which is Nissan’s luxury brand -- will unfold “the new design language for the age of autonomy and electrification.”
He further added that the Q Inspiration concept car has been designed by Infiniti by keeping the Chinese market particularly in mind, and described the concept car as “a very sporty, performance-oriented electric concept” which has a notably big interior space.
