Infiniti Qs Inspiration Electric Sports Sedan Concept Leaks Ahead Of Shanghai Debut

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.

    Overall it looks great, EXCEPT the front doors look like it was T-boned by a out of control forklift. How could they mess up a good design like this?

    meh. Looks like the offspring of a GTR and a Ford Taurus. It looks like a huge FWD domestic car.

    So its a lowered SUV that will never see the light of day… and the Q60 still has had Zero updates to tech and exterior… Infiniti is not what it used to be.

    Best looking Inifiniti–maybe ever. I’m not sure about the little lines going from the rear quarter windows into the C-pillars, but the rest looks very sleek, and uniquely Infiniti. I would love to see this design language applied to the next Q50/Q60.
