At the 2018 Detroit auto show, Infiniti pre­sented the Q80 In­spi­ra­tion con­cept, a car de­signed to “take the tra­di­tional sedan ar­chi­tec­ture to its next stage of evo­lu­tion,” ac­cord­ing to the mar­que’s ex­ec­u­tive de­sign di­rec­tor. What the con­cept re­ally does is give us a sneak peek at the fu­ture of Infiniti’s elec­tric ve­hi­cle pro­gram and pro­vide a likely rep­re­sen­ta­tion of what Infiniti’s next-gen­er­a­tion flag­ship sedan will look like. Although orig­i­nally de­signed for the VC-Turbo vari­able-com­pres­sion four-cylin­der, the chas­sis that the Q80 In­spi­ra­tion rides on will form the ba­sis for a range of up­scale elec­tric ve­hi­cles Infiniti will be­gin build­ing in China over the next five years. Ex­pect much of the con­cept’s de­sign lan­guage to carry over as well. By 2025, Infiniti says that more than half of its to­tal pro­duc­tion will be elec­tri­fied.
