INFINITI to Go Electric from 2021

By Terry Steeden on 17 January 2018

INFINITI Motor Company will introduce new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021, according to Nissan Chief Executive Officer Hiroto Saikawa, speaking at the Automotive News World Congress yesterday.

 

  • New INFINITI models will offer electrified powertrains from 2021
  • INFINITI will launch its first pure electric vehicle in the same year
  • Electrified vehicles will comprise more than half of INFINITI global sales by 2025

A mix of pure electric vehicles (EV) and e-POWER vehicles will be offered – demonstrating the full range of ultra-low emission vehicle technology available to INFINITI as the premium brand within the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

As a result of this emphasis on ultra-low emission technology, INFINITI expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.

e-POWER technology features a small gasoline engine that charges a high-output battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source, providing the convenience of re-fuelling with petrol, while offering the same driving experience as a pure EV.
