According to the Japanese automaker, this concept serves as a preview for upcoming high-performance, high-range electrified vehicles, while also signaling a new era in terms of design. As you can see, the QX Inspiration boasts a sharp and futuristic exterior with a high shoulder line.
Conventional features go out the window
We can also spot cameras instead of wing mirrors, which is a clear indicator as to where we’re heading when it comes to future cars – in time, we suspect most if not all automakers will adopt this solution, not just the likes of Audi or Infiniti.
By developing new EV platforms, Infiniti will aim for their vehicles to feature spacious, lounge-like interiors. Such is the case for the QX Inspiration concept, as its cabin was hand-crafted using traditional techniques and multiple materials inspired by what the automaker calls “a subtle Japanese sensuality”.
Meanwhile, overall interior ambiance and technology follows the Japanese hospitality principle of “omotenashi”, creating a “welcoming environment while assisting drivers and connecting occupants to the world around them.”
“QX Inspiration is the beginning of a new era for Infiniti and an illustration of where we want to go with the brand,” stated the automaker in an official press release. “New technology has given us the opportunity to evolve our design philosophy – and the new vehicle communicates the serene strength at our core.”
The QX Inspiration concept will debut on January 14th, 11:40 AM EST in Detroit.
