Infiniti says the new concept represents the company’s plans for high-performance electrified vehicles, “offering complete range confidence, while signalling a new era for Infiniti design enabled by new technology”. A refreshed form language “hints at the potency and character of the brand’s future electrified powertrains”.
Infiniti says the development of new electric vehicle platforms enables the formation of spacious, lounge-like interiors. In the case of the QX Inspiration concept, the cabin has been hand-crafted using traditional techniques and a choice of materials “inspired by a subtle Japanese sensuality”. The new interior technology is said to follow the Japanese hospitality principle of ‘omotenashi’, creating a welcoming environment, while assisting drivers and connecting occupants to the world around them.
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.
