2018 Week 3 Infiniti sets EV strategy

INFINITI, Nissan’s luxury brand sees that EVs will contribute more than half of its global sales by 2025. Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa announced at the Automotive News World Congress in Detroit today this week that the Japanese automaker will launch its first EV in 2021. It is strange that Infiniti sees EVs to be such an important contributor to its sales yet its entry into the market only in 2021 makes it one of the latecomers to the sector signaling that it was not geared for the market change in the first place.

According to a press release by the company, INFINITI will offer a mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles, demonstrating the full range of low-emission vehicle technology. Infiniti unveiled the Q Inspiration Concept at the Detroit Auto Show as a future vision of what customers can expect from its new level of electrified driving performance. Other than announcing that the Infiniti  Q Inspiration will have Nissan’s ProPILOT autonomous drive technology no specifications were released around the electrified drivetrain.
