“With this hybrid, Infiniti may have turned over a new ace in its poker game with the likes of the Acura MDX and the Lincoln MKT. Call, raise or fold, pardners,” says The New York Times.

Eco-friendly website Treehugger.com has all the details about the hybrid, and a video of the Q50′s reveal. Watch at the link.

Will you check out this more sustainable option when the Q50 comes to Infiniti retailers? Tell us why in the comments!

    Yes!
    The coefficient of drag 0.26 really caught my attention.
    It’s aerodynamic nature gives it innate sustainability.
    I’d like to learn more about direct adaptive steering though. The fundamental principle makes sense, but I’d like to test drive it to get a feel for it.

  • 1/19/13 | 6:05 pm

    I will check it out. I love my Infiniti G37 and am curious to see the new Q.

  • 1/21/13 | 8:14 am

    Sam – Thanks for your comment! We think you’ll enjoy the Direct Adaptive Steering experience, but you’re right that the best way to know is to test it yourself.

    Deborah – We think you will love the Q50! Thanks for your comment.

Will 2013 be the year of the Electric Vehicle?

electric car

The New York Times posed the question this week – Will 2013 be the year of the Electric Vehicle? The discussion comes on the heels of a study that “estimates annual global sales of 3.8 million electric or plug-in hybrid cars by 2020,” the New York Times says.

What do you think? Will 2013 hold more EVs than ever? What do you think the road will look like in 2020? Leave a comment with your thoughts below!

    I agree with Christopher Schuetze, writer of that article.
    Although customers have historically been “ignorant and apathetic,” obvious manifestations of climate change are forcing many Americans to do their homework on this.
    I believe that after doing their homework, any level-headed human being will see the obvious benefits of owning an electric car, including greater efficiency, better effects on the environment, tax breaks, etc.
    In addition, seeing reputable brands like Infiniti lead the way adds verisimilitude to the idea that electric cars aren’t just cars that hippies daisy chain batteries to; if the big dogs are going for it, there’s value in it.
    I bet by 2020, there’ll be even more than 4 million electric vehicles on the road.
    The New York Times article stated that EV’s would grow linearly at 40 percent per year, but I disagree; with the manifestations of climate change and the obvious benefits of electric car ownership, I bet EV ownership will grow exponentially.

    I’ll buy an ev when they get the range to 500 plus miles on a charge.

The Infiniti EV Makes an Appearance at The LA Auto Show

Infiniti LE Concept Instagram

Our all-electric concept car is the star of the Infiniti space at the LA Auto Show, but the production version of the Infiniti LE Concept is also in the works. Will you be waiting in line to see it? Why or why not? Leave a comment – we want to hear from you.

  • Sam Sentongo

    If I lived in LA, Yes!
    By all means!
    I’ve heard some rumblings suggesting that many of the features of the concept would not be on the production version, so I’d definitely be waiting in line to see the LE production version to find out what will or will not be on the production version in addition to pricing, etc..
    In addition, I’d like to see the interior and parts of the powertrain in person.

    P.S. PLEASE come to the Chicago Auto Show!!!

    I also have some other questions about the LE Concept, like the following:
    1) I like to back up my car into the garage, does Intelligent Parking Assist work when moving in reverse?
    2) Is it possible to turn off Intelligent Parking Assist and manually adjust the placement of the inductive charging pad? Is there a feature which gives drivers an aerial view of the car in reference to the inductive charging pad, helping them park in tight situations?
    2) How does the initial setup work for Intelligent Parking Assist? When initially placing the inductive charging pad in my garage, can I place the car in park and move the pad around until I get a signal from the car?
    I’m really fascinated about the LE Concept

  • 1/19/13 | 5:52 pm

    I will go and check it out. Can’t Wait.

  • 1/21/13 | 8:28 am

    Hi Sam – Thanks for your comments!

    Yes, the Intelligent Parking Assist will work in assisting the driver to park their vehicle while backing or moving forward. Intelligent Park Assist must be driver activated, and so yes, you can park over the Inductive Charging Pad without it. However, the system is designed to assist the driver in positioning their electric vehicle above the charging pad for maximum efficiency when charging inductively.

    Infiniti’s Around View Monitor system does provide an aerial view to assist with parking in any situation.

    Final specifications and system functionality for the Intelligent Park Assist in the production version of the LE Concept have not yet been released to the public.

    We hope this helps answer your questions! Thank you again.

    A new wireless charging? so why create a new way to charge? in case u did not know. 25 yrs ago, there were different charging systems for EV1/EV2, Rav4, and others.
    Now Infiniti going out the way for another charger diffrent from the standard Tesla, Leaf, Mitsubishi, Honda, BMW system (w/c all use the same on) just to make it inconvient for infinti ev users! They plan to make it a failure before it is even launched!
    Unless infiniti EV has a 10,000 mile range, I won’t be able to go anywhere with it. Just around my home. so why get one? at least even with a 50 miles Mitsubishi EV, can can still drive cross country if I really want to. Just charge along the way.

    Quit stalling and bring it on. If it’s priced right and has a range of 100, Tesla is going to have a run for it’s money
