In­finiti takes in­spi­ra­tion from way be­yond

The Herald Magazine - - DRIVE -

NIS­SAN’S lux­ury arm, In­finiti, has re­leased an im­age of its new Q In­spi­ra­tion Con­cept ahead of its de­but at the 2018 North Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional Auto Show in Detroit on Jan­uary 15.

Sleek is the only word for the new model, with the ex­te­rior of the Q In­spi­ra­tion fea­tur­ing clear and con­cise lines and avoid­ing what might be re­garded as clas­si­cal sa­loon forms with its elon­gated sil­hou­ette. In other words, it’s sup­posed to look like a coupe or grand tourer.

It is the first man­i­fes­ta­tion of In­finiti’s new form lan­guage for an era of ad­vanced pow­er­trains and presents a de­sign vi­sion for ve­hi­cles in this seg­ment.

Karim Habib, In­finiti’s Ex­ec­u­tive De­sign Di­rec­tor, com­mented: “We aim to take tra­di­tional sa­loon ar­chi­tec­ture to its next stage of evo­lu­tion.

“Ex­per­i­ment­ing with new pro­por­tions in an es­tab­lished seg­ment with the arrival of smarter, com­pact pow­er­trains, the Q In­spi­ra­tion fea­tures a shorter hood and elon­gated body, with all the ben­e­fits to in­te­rior wellbeing, com­fort and space that this lay­out en­tails.”
