It’s been a week since Infiniti released this official teaser showcasing their new Qs Inspiration Concept, scheduled to be unveiled in Shanghai on April 16. As luck would have it, we don’t have to wait that long in order to find out what it really looks like.
Thanks to China’s Autohome, we now have a gallery of images (albeit low-res), depicting the Qs Inspiration in all its splendor. As for its purpose, it is a design study that will eventually morph into medium and large full-electric Infiniti vehicles sometime in the future.
Avant-garde yet sporty
It is no mere coincidence that the Qs Inspiration features the same design language as the QX Inspiration. The latter was unveiled earlier this year in Detroit in order to preview an electrified crossover. As you can see, the Qs boasts a nearly identical front fascia and pillar design, although de devil is definitely in the details.
The Qs’ headlights are a little less pointy than those of the QX, almost resembling Volvo’s Thor’s Hammer LED signature. You can tell that the designers wanted to make the Qs a little less rugged-looking, emphasizing its elegant features.
Then you have the A-Pillar design and the way it blends in with the roof – very reminiscent of the Nissan GT-R, which in turn helps give the Qs Inspiration a more dynamic stance, especially when viewed from the side.
Tech on display
Inside the Qs Inspiration there is a futuristic and display-laden dashboard (two of them), similar in design to that of the previously-mentioned QX. Unlike the QX though, the Qs has a slightly sportier ambiance inside, with a smaller steering wheel that doesn’t appear to have its own display.
Overall, the cabin of the Qs seems more driver-oriented, which makes sense seen as how this concept is meant to be less of a traditional family-hauler and more of a sports/luxury sedan, depending on which EV segment it will infiltrate.
