A mid-engined extended-range sports car concept is destined for Geneva, Infiniti say
12 January 2012

Infiniti will launch a range-extended electric sports car concept at the Geneva motor show in March, promising low emissions and high performance.

The as-yet unnamed concept will feature a mid-mounted 1.2-litre petrol engine with a range extender offering “optimal weight distribution and handling”. The concept will also debut Infiniti’s new design language.

Infiniti says the concept is designed to explore the next stage in “how to deliver a vivid, engaging and sophisticated driving experience from an electrically-propelled vehicle”, and how the mid-engined layout can help achieve it.

The range-extended electric car will have zero tailpipe emissions, but is claimed to offer high performance on the open road.
