Infiniti Previews Q Inspiration Concept Ahead of Detroit Debut
A few weeks ahead of its official reveal at the 2018 Detroit auto show, Infiniti gives us a peek at the new Q Inspiration concept. This all-new concept is a design study previewing what we can expect from the brand in the near future.
At the moment, we’re only privy to a single rear-three-quarter shot of the car. From the looks of things, it’s still recognizably Infiniti, with distinctive cut-lines and drop-off edges toward the rear of the car. Beyond that, the Q Inspiration appears a bit slab-sided, with a noticeable amount of flat real estate around the doors and portions of the rear quarter panels.
“Experimenting with new proportions in a typically conservative segment, the Q Inspiration features a shorter hood and elongated body,” said Infiniti Executive Design Director Karim Habib, in a release. “We aim to take the traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution.”
At the moment, information remains scarce on both the powertrain and interior design, but it’s expected to pack either an electric/hybridized powertrain or the variable compression four-cylinder found in the new QX50.
