Infiniti Emerg-E Concept a Must See in Geneva

Infiniti has released images of its sleek Emerg-E hybrid sports-car concept this week. The car is slated to make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Although there are some design cues from the current G37, the concept is strongly reminiscent of the Essence that excited enthusiasts and the media on the auto show circuit in 2009 and 2010.

Nissan’s luxury arm is clearly interested in offering more performance-tuned offerings, but the brand isn’t going to do so without offering innovative fuel-saving tech either. Infiniti already boasts the world’s fastest hybrid, and the range-extended electric powertrain within the Emerg-E is telling of the the brand’s eco-centric strategy moving forward.

Nissan executives have previously described the Infiniti Emerge-E as, “our vision for a totally new kind of inspired premium performance car. The natural next step was to push the boundaries where performance and the environment intersect.”

The two-seat, mid-engined Emerg-E has a powertrain that operates in the same fashion as the Chevrolet Volt, where electricity drives the rear wheels while a small gasoline generator helps recharge the batteries. It’s propelled by an 80 kW electric motor and a lithium-ion battery from the Nissan Leaf. Its small 1.2-liter engine is mounted amidships for optimal weight handling and distribution.

In the wake of the Emerg-E’s debut, Infiniti also plans to challenge BMW with its own Z4 rival. An all-electric sedan is also rumored to make its debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show in April.
