Electrified powertrains have given us the design and engineering freedom to create something truly engaging to drive.
The sports sedan of the electrified era The Qs Inspiration Concept
We’re not just designing electric vehicles. We’re changing them. By rethinking what makes a car, a car — we’re putting the driving experience at the center of everything we do.
“The age of electrification presents us with an opportunity to renew our credentials as an innovative challenger brand.”
MIKE COLLERAN, GLOBAL DIVISION VICE PRESIDENT, MARKETING & SALES OPERATIONS, INFINITI
RESHAPED FOR ELECTRIFICATION
The Qs Inspiration challenges the traditional sedan design, innovating the shape and details to preview the future form of the INFINITI line-up.
The evolution of the sedan
Drawing from traditional Japanese design and modern influences, we reimagined what the sports sedan could look like in the electrified era.
The face of performance
With no need to cool an engine, the Qs Inspiration hints at its sporty character by maintaining the outline of the grille.
Inspired by origami
Embracing the Japanese spatial concept of ‘Ma’, the muscular surfaces are punctuated by clean lines — just like folded paper.
Enabled by electrification
Without the weight of a combustion engine, the Qs Inspiration has a low center of gravity, giving it a sporty advantage on the road.
A WELCOMING CABIN
The flexible form of the Qs Inspiration invites you into a spacious, lounge-like interior. Merging Japanese hospitality and design techniques, with modern architecture and innovative technologies.
A wave of senses
Finished in carbon fiber, the dashboard illuminates the cabin while you drive. Vermillion red (shu) symbolizes performance, moving to a soft turquoise (ama-yo) during autonomy for maximum relaxation.
The most essential element of travel: seating. Panels of white leather are folded over one another, like a carefully-folded kimono.
For the passengers
A more relaxed atmosphere, with individual seats and a subtle color palette that make the most of the generous space.
Focused on the road ahead
Through digital surfaces and striking artistry, the cabin keeps drivers connected — without the need to take their eyes off the road.
Space and light
Timber louvers above cast beautiful moving shadows throughout the interior, creating pleasant diffused lighting for everyone inside.
The inspiration behind the Inspiration
“Electrification represents a revolution for INFINITI, not just in the way our cars are powered, but in the way they are designed.”
Alfonso Albaisa, Senior Vice President for Global Design, INFINITI
A journey in electrification
In the coming years, the entire INFINITI line-up will become electrified. Each concept vehicle we build helps shape our vision of the future.
