The brand also plans to show other future models.
Infiniti’s EV era is starting soon.
The Vision Qe concept receives a slopping roof.
The 2023 Tokyo Mobility Show will soon be opening its doors, which explains this rush of announcements from several car brands. Honda, Nissan, Subaru, and Mazda have already revealed what they plan on showing with a few teasers, and so far, we must admit that the 2023 edition of the show promises to be rich in important presentations.
This time, it’s Infiniti’s turn to prepare its followers by promising the arrival of this Vision Qe prototype, a styling study that will show what to expect from the brand’s very first electric vehicle. Infiniti, despite parent company Nissan’s early involvement in the electric segment with the Leaf over a decade ago, is still without any electrified option in its lineup.
This photo doesn’t tell us much about the concept vehicle, but it does reveal a coupe-like silhouette. Whether in the form of a crossover or a sedan with a fastback roof, we can still see that the rear of the vehicle will proudly bear the letters I-N-F-I-N-I-T-I on its rear end, a strategy already employed by the brand’s design department on current models.
While it’s clear that we’ll have to wait a few more seasons to see Infiniti’s first production EV, the automaker will also be taking advantage of its presence in Tokyo to show off “several stunning new models”, according to the brand’s release. We can guess that some of the existing models will be redesigned or heavily reworked.
All indications are that the Ambition 2030 plan, the name given to Infiniti’s strategy for the future, is back on track. Let’s hope so, because the last few years have been difficult for the brand’s head direction at Nissan’s luxury division. Sales have seen better days, and the model range doesn’t seem to be appealing to consumers. Infiniti is indeed in need of renewal, and on October 24, we’ll know more about what senior management intends to do to become a more serious brand in the luxury arena once again.
