A number of images of Infiniti’s upcoming EMERG-E electric supercar have been leaked ahead of the car’s offical debut at next month’s Geneva Auto Show. Like the Nissan Mid-4 concept of the 1980s, this one was also built as a technological showpiece to steal some of rival carmaker Acura’s stunning new NSX hybrid. To do that, the EMERG-E builds on technology developed by Nissan/Renault (Infiniti’s parent company) in its high-profile Nissan Leaf and low-cost Renault Twizy EVs.
The leaked photos follow months of poorly-lit videos and patent-drawing leaks, and show a slinky Japanese sportscar with mid-engine proportions and aggressively styled flanks. The Infiniti concept’s batteries are expected to be powered by a small, internal combustion, range-extending engine, which will help the powerful electric motors deliver useful driving range to the car’s (conceptual) buyers.
There is no word yet on the Infiniti’s production prospects.
