This sleek and powerful concept shatters expectations of what high-performance can be. And no driver would ever guess the secret - the Infiniti EMERG-E is 100% electric. And now, the recent winner of the German Design Council's prestigious Automotive Brands Contest 2012 in the Concepts category.
In addition to setting a new standard for high-performance, low-emission electric vehicles, the Infiniti EMERG-E concept also brings forward a new design language with styling that is seductive and energizing.
The Infiniti EMERG-E is a 402bhp (300kW) mid-ship sports car designed to be capable of accelerating from 0–60mph in just four seconds — and from zero to 130mph in a single, seamless 30 second burst. In addition to thrilling performance, the EMERG-E will also be able to travel in urban conditions for a period of time with zero emissions.
The EMERG-E is the first Infiniti developed in Europe. More than that, its advanced technology deliberately draws on the knowledge of vendors beyond Infiniti’s usual base in the quest to uncover the most innovative technology. As a result, Infiniti has become a part of the UK government’s Technology Strategy Board initiative, whose aim is to fast-track the arrival of low carbon vehicles.
