Infiniti aims to launch Chinese-built EV in 3 years
The first electric car for Infiniti will be a sporty sedan produced in China, the Japanese carmaker said Wednesday.
The vehicle will hit the market in around three years, and consumers will get a taste when the company unveils a concept car, dubbed the Qs Inspiration electric sedan, at the Shanghai auto show.
«China has the most growth potential for electric vehicles globally, especially in the premium segment» Infiniti Chairman Christian Meunier said.
It's unclear whether Infiniti plans to produce its first electric vehicle also in other markets. An Infiniti spokesman said the brand did not intend to export the e-sedan from China.
The e-sedan is part of Infiniti's longer-term strategy to significantly electrify its product lineup.
