Infiniti Emerg-E Hybrid Sports-Car at 2012 Geneva Auto

Just the Facts:

* Infiniti s concept is a midengine, range-extender car that could potentially a new flagship model for the brand.

* The s range-extending hybrid driveline has co-developed with Lotus, and similar hardware with the 414E concept from

* The Emerg-E receives 402 horsepower a pair of electric motors drive the rear wheels via a open-differential transmission.

GENEVA — has unveiled a midengine, range-extender car concept called Emerg-E at the Geneva Auto Show. to be one of four concepts that potentially become a new flagship for the brand, the Emerg-E is the first Infiniti.

Also novel is much of its creation has taken in the United Kingdom, where its hybrid driveline has been with Lotus, which similar hardware in the Evora concept that debuted in Part of the reason for developing Infiniti in Britain is that the has attracted U.K. government by encouraging the development of new, developed green technologies as its electric motors and carbon-fiber

However, the Emerg-E s exterior was created in the U.S. by Randy out of Infiniti s California design His theme triumphed over from the company s Japanese and design centers, although it was the studio that completed the development.

The inner core of the is based on a slightly stretched of the aluminum chassis of the Lotus and its potent drivetrain is much the as the Evora 414E concept s, Potent in this case 402 horsepower from a pair of motors that drive the wheels via a single-speed open-differential developed by Xtrac. Peak is an equally dramatic 738 pound-feet, the Emerg-E to streak to 60 mph in just 4 says Infiniti.

The rather less impressive — the power output — top speed of 130 mph is by the need to prolong battery and to give the 47-hp 1.2-liter gasoline range-extender engine a of replenishing the lithium-ion battery

This engine is purposely as a generator — Lotus is planning to dedicated range-extender power to hybrid manufacturers — and is identical to the s, though curiously, the Lotus motors develop slightly power at 408 hp. Both cars are at all times by these electric (unlike the Volt), which been developed by U.K.-based The onboard generator provides the with a 300-mile range, 30 of in zero-emissions EV mode.

When the engine is running, it produces a low of CO2 emissions on the European NEDC cycle.

The decision to collaborate with on range-extender technology appears surprising within Infiniti it does from outside, brand Nissan having unpublicized projects with the division of the sports-car maker for than a decade. Infiniti a range-extender concept as a logical exploration of the hybrid technologies in it is already a front runner models like the M35h and began developing a front-engine sports car of its own. But the chance to win funding for this project and importantly, work with an of hi-tech engineering specialists it would not normally come contact with, persuaded that there were to be made by working with and developing much of the car in Europe, the technical similarities between the and the earlier 414E.

In terms of the two cars are completely different, the providing Infiniti with the to stretch its design language a midengine layout for the first Apart from the corporate which looks as if it has been from an Infiniti sedan, the makes for a shapely and dramatic and a more elegant one than the thanks in part to a 2-inch-longer Emerg-E s interior architecture is slightly similar to the Evora s but it, too, looks more elegant.

Infiniti plans to increase its experience by building a pair of Emerg-E prototypes during The aim is to prove out the hardware used in the and explore the question of whether a range-extender hybrid will the pinnacle of a model line lately has been best for bold crossovers such as the FX and EX. contenders for the Infiniti top slot a luxury sedan, another and an as-yet-undisclosed vehicle format.

Inside Line says: The makes a striking departure for with its overtly sporty concept, and the exploration of fresh avenues is intriguing, too. it makes a fitting flagship for a best known for SUVs and is another issue, however.
