The Sports Sedan. Electrified.
QS Inspiration Concept
We’re not just designing electric vehicles. We’re changing them. By rethinking what makes a car, a car – we’re putting the driving experience at the centre of everything we do.
“The age of electrification presents us with an opportunity to renew our credentials as an innovative challenger brand.”
MIKE COLLERAN, GLOBAL DIVISION VICE PRESIDENT, MARKETING & SALES OPERATIONS, INFINITI
Reshaped for Electrification
Drawing from traditional Japanese design and a modern influence, we reimagined what the sports sedan could look like in the electrified era. Inspired by origami and the Japanese spatial concept of ‘Ma’, the Qs Inspiration’s muscular surfaces are punctuated by clean lines. These innovative shapes and details are a glimpse into the future form of the INFINITI lineup.
The Face of Performance
With no need to cool an engine, the Qs Inspiration hints at its sporty character by maintaining the outline of the grille.
Enabled by Electrification
Without the weight of a combustion engine, the Qs Inspiration has a low centre of gravity, giving it a sporty advantage on the road.
A Welcoming Cabin
The flexible form of the Qs Inspiration invites you into a spacious, lounge-like interior. We merged Japanese hospitality and design techniques, with modern architecture and innovative technologies to create the ultimate relaxed atmosphere.
A WAVE OF SENSES
Finished in carbon fibre, the dashboard illuminates the cabin, while you drive. Watch the light transition from a vermillion red (shu) symbolizing performance, to a soft turquoise (ama-yo) during autonomy, for a relaxing sensory experience.
Like a carefully folded kimono, overlapping panels of white leather on individual seats make the most of the generous space.
SPACE AND LIGHT
Timber louvers above cast beautiful moving shadows throughout the interior, creating pleasant diffused lighting for everyone inside.
The Inspiration Behind The Inspiration
Electrified powertrains have given us the design and engineering freedom to create something truly engaging to drive.
“Electrification represents a revolution for INFINITI, not just in the way our cars are powered, but in the way they are designed.”
ALFONSO ALBAISA, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT FOR GLOBAL DESIGN, INFINITI
A Journey in Electrification
In the coming years, the entire INFINITI lineup will become electrified. Each concept vehicle we build helps shape our vision of the future.
