This year marks the fifth time that Infiniti has attended the Geneva Motor Show. Since then a lot of changes have been happening in the auto industry, not only in Europe but across the globe.
As it stretches its arms out further into new markets, Infiniti is also looking towards the future and from this yearís press conference in Geneva, that might just include a low emissions, mid-engined super sports car.
The stunning Emerg-E concept is Infinitiís first ever exploration into the idea of a such a vehicle and incorporates a mid-mounted driveline with dual electric motors that enabled it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in around four seconds and from 0-130 mph in around 30. Infiniti says the EMERG-E can travel on pure electric power for a distance of up to 30 miles, after which a range extending, three-cylinder gasoline engine kicks in.
Measuring some 175 inches from nose to tail, the Emerg-E is currently just a concept. That said, two running vehicles are under construction at the Nissan corporate facility in Sunderland, UK, in an effort to provide a more hands-on experience of mid-engined sporty motoring.
All said, itís shaping up to be nearly a direct rival to the new Acura NSX concept Ė itself a mid-engined hybrid.
