Because you need one, obviously.
Left-field Japanese marque Infiniti have announced ahead of the 2019 North American International Auto Show (’19 NAIAS, or the Detroit Auto Show) that it’ll be showing what’s called the ‘QX Inspiration,’ a concept car that previews the future of the marque and how they intend to tackle the growing interest in zero-emissions vehicles, as well as the unrelenting demand for SUVs and crossovers.
The QX Inspiration is exactly that, an EV crossover, which the company claims is “infused with Japanese DNA” that signals “a new era for Infiniti design enabled by new technology.” In English, it means that the QX Inspiration maximises the advantages that come with EV motivation. That means a large, spacious cabin (that’s been designed more like a lounge rather than like a car), while also offering an experience that’s uniquely Japanese in its presentation.
Infiniti claims that the technology utilised inside are in keeping with the ‘omotenashi’ principles of hospitality, ensuring that the environment is welcoming and connected in equal measure.
Weirdly, Infiniti has only released two photographs of the QX Inspiration, showing us nothing of the cabin. Further, they gave us nothing of the powertrain, or the range, or the autonomous driving capabilities that we’re sure it has. Whatever that hasn’t yet been revealed will surely be detailed when the veil is lifted at the Detroit show, which is scheduled for January 14th.
