Infiniti’s taking the electric vehicle (EV) scene by storm, but not in the way you’d expect. While many are going big with chunky SUVs, Infiniti’s rolling out the red carpet for its sleek new saloon, the Vision Qe. Unveiled with flair at the Japan Mobility Show, this ride is all about redefining electric elegance.
Ditching the classic double-arched grille, the Vision Qe sports a revamped, illuminating front fascia. And it doesn’t stop there. Those front and rear light clusters? They’re rocking Infiniti’s fresh ‘digital piano key’ design and yes, they light up too. The side profile? It’s got these cool fissures, giving a nod to fluid design. It’s like Infiniti’s way of saying, “Who said dents can’t be chic?”
Now, let’s chat wheels. The Vision Qe isn’t rolling on your average rims. These geometric bad boys are inspired by electric motor coils. And that Shadow Blue paint? It’s not just a color; it’s a mood, setting the stage for those popping gold accents.
Alfonso Albaisa, senior VP for global design, asserted, “Our designers began creating forms that, to me, looked like abstractions of a bird in flight – powerful, almost motionless, but generating such speed.”
While the Vision Qe’s design has everyone talking, Infiniti’s playing it cool on the specs. With Nissan, its parent brand, having just the Ariya and Leaf in the EV lineup, there’s buzz about a new platform in the works for the Vision Qe. Release dates, price tags? Infiniti’s keeping those cards close to its chest. But word on the street is, the final ride will echo a lot of the Vision Qe’s concept vibes.
Infiniti’s Vision Qe is setting the stage for the next EV era. It’s not about following the crowd; it’s about charting a new course. With a blend of design genius and electric innovation, this sedan is turning heads and sparking conversations. Stay tuned, the electric road ahead looks promising with Infiniti in the driver’s seat.
