The Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept presented in Detroit

With the Infiniti Q Inspiration concept, Infiniti presents its vision of the style that its VC-Turbo vehicles with autonomous driving technologies could have in the future. The Q Inspiration, very stylish indeed, demonstrates what we may see from Infiniti in coming years. Or not.

For those who do not know, the Infiniti VC-T turbo engine is the world’s first variable compression engine. Since the compression ratio is essential for both performance and fuel economy, the possibility of varying it in real time according to the driver’s behavior and road conditions makes it possible to obtain a vehicle that will be both economical and packed with power.

The VC-T engine can therefore vary the compression ratio from 8: 1 to 14: 1 by adjusting the position of the cylinders. We will see the first real application of this engine in the upcoming 2019 Infiniti QX50.

The Q Inspiration concept also features an improved generation of ProPilot driving assistance technologies. In the concept, this system acts as a co-pilot by taking over several elements of the drive. Infiniti did not offer more information about these features.
