Infiniti small concept car (2011) teaser pictureTue, 08 Feb 2011
Infiniti has released this solitary teaser picture of its small concept car to debut at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
It's confirmation that Nissan's upmarket wing is plotting a smaller car to sit below the current G saloon, coupe and convertible.
Nope, indeed not. Infiniti is remaining unusually tight-lipped on the matter and we'll have to wait until press day at the 2011 Geneva show on 1 March for the full story.
CAR’s Ben Whitworth previously interviewed Infiniti chief Jim Wright who suggested that the smaller Infiniti was high up on the list for Europe in particular.
It's crying out for a model below G with which to take advantage of the boom in downsizing. This concept car is a signal that Infiniti could join the ranks of the 1-series/A3/A-class.
No word yet whether the sub-G Infiniti will be electric or hybrid, but bearing in mind parent company Nissan's experience with the Leaf EV and Infiniti's own experience in hybrids, we'd wager it's at least partly electrified.
