Infiniti electric car to debut at Paris Motor Show

Infiniti is to reveal its first fully electric car at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show this September. What’s even more exciting is that the luxury carmaker says that the new LE Concept is a ‘production intent’ model, meaning we could expect to see it away from the showground and on real roads before too long.

Joining the Emerg-e range-extended concept and the M35h production hybrid which we’ve already seen at Geneva Motor Show back in March, the new concept to debut at the show comes in the form of a four door saloon. At around 4.7m long, the LE Concept is a similar size to the Infiniti G Saloon-a reflection of the carmaker’s desire to ensure that zero emissions does not mean small.

As you would expect from the luxury arm of Nissan, Infiniti has also focused on making the new model desirable; with flowing lines, a well-equipped interior and the possibility of a ground-breaking wireless recharging system to boast of.

Infiniti’s home-based wireless recharging system uses a coil safely encased in the charging pad to charge the battery using inductive energy flow. An Intelligent Park Assist feature will also automatically align the vehicle over the charging pad to make it even easier to recharge-without the need to connect cables. The high-frequency, wireless charging, controlled by the car’s display or by smartphone, is safe for children and pets and can be installed easily in a home garage.

The new LE Concept uses a 100kW (134ps) electric motor achieving 325 Nm of torque. Like its Nissan LEAF cousin, the concept uses a 24 kWh lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery to give the car a range of around 100 miles per charge. Using the familiar ChaDeMo DC50kW quick charger, the battery can be recharged to 80 per cent capacity in 30 minutes.

“The Infiniti LE Concept is a ‘production intent’ concept and most of what you see will become a reality,” said Bernard Loire, Vice President of Infiniti Europe, Middle East, India and Africa said as he announced the concept’s forthcoming European debut. “It is too early to confirm exactly when and where it will go on sale, but we are heartened by recent moves to encourage electric cars, such as France raising the purchase incentive from €5000 to €7000 per car. It is fitting that the LE Concept should make its European debut in Paris.”

Infiniti believes the future of luxury lies in sustainable luxury and we intend to continue taking a leadership role to achieve it,” added Loire.

The model will appear at the Paris Motor Show which opens with two press preview days (September 27 and 28) before opening to the public from September 29 to October 14, 2012.
