Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept Previews Production Sports Sedan

Infiniti has released the first teaser image of their new Qs Inspiration concept.

Designed to preview an upcoming production model, the Qs Inspiration is a sports sedan which features a new design language that Infiniti will apply to future electrified vehicles. The company didn’t go into specifics, but said the design will be inspired by the “art and modern architecture of Japan.”

That’s pretty vague, but the teaser image shows the concept will have rounded bodywork which is interrupted by angular surfaces on the rear bumper. We can also see slender taillights and a distinctive half-glass roof. Other highlights appear to include video camera side mirrors and a unique trim element which is integrated into the rear pillar.

Infiniti didn’t release interior pictures, but the company said drivers will find a minimalist cabin with two distinct zones. These include a “clutter-free cockpit” and a “relaxed passenger zone” with generous interior space. Regardless of where people sit, Infiniti said they will find “striking artistry and craftsmanship.”

Little else is known about the concept, but Infiniti confirmed the car will have an electrified powertrain. The model will also ride on an all-new flexible architecture which has been specifically designed to accommodate eco-friendly powertrains.

The automaker didn’t say much else about the concept, but they might have hinted it will be a flagship sedan. As they noted, the Q45 debuted in 1989 with a groundbreaking design and now, thirty years later, the company is “delivering another groundbreaking sedan.”

The Q45 was dropped over a decade ago and it has been effectively replaced by the Q70 / Q70L. The Q70 is getting long-in-tooth at this point, so it’s not entirely clear if the upcoming production model will replace it or become a true flagship sedan like the Q45.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but we should learn more at the Shanghai Auto Show.

    Looks good, but like every other Infiniti concept, it’ll disappoint us all when it comes to production.

        I’d argue the opposite really. Have you ever driven a recent Camaro? You can’t even see out of that thing. Not safe at all.
        It’s more of a styling design choice really. The structure and frame underneath aren’t raised up any higher than any other car.
