Before bidding adieu to 2018, INFINITI will reflect on a successful calendar year. Besides achieving record sales in November thanks in part to the award-winning 2019 QX50 crossover, INFINITI made historic promises, debuted a stunning speedster concept and helped paleontologists discover new dinosaur species in the Gobi Desert.
Here's INFINITI's Top 10 Moments of 2018:
INFINITI unveils Q Inspiration Concept at NAIAS
Previewing a new generation of INFINITI vehicles, the Q Inspiration Concept proposes how an innovative VC-Turbo powertrain, next-level autonomous drive technologies, and a unique human-centric interior could enrich the experience for drivers of luxury sedans. The concept car was revealed for the first time at the 2018 North American International Auto Show and is meant to demonstrate future technologies. The Q Inspiration is the first manifestation of INFINITI's new form language, for an era of advanced powertrains. The concept eschews classical sedan forms with coupe-like proportions and an elongated silhouette, demonstrating INFINITI's design vision for vehicles in this segment.
INFINITI announces plans to go electric from 2021
INFINITI Motor Company will introduce new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021, said Nissan Chief Executive Officer Hiroto Saikawa at the 2018 Automotive News World Congress. INFINITI will offer a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles – demonstrating the full range of low-emission vehicle technology available to INFINITI as the premium brand of Nissan Motor Company. As a result of this emphasis on low-emission technology, INFINITI expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of EVs by 2025.
