Infiniti launches electric concept, says first battery-driven model to be ready in three years

EDITORS PLEASE NOTE - THIS STORY HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN BECAUSE FOOTAGE OF THE INIFINITI "QX INSPIRATION" MODEL HAS BEEN INCORRECTLY LABELED AS THE INFINITI "QS INSPIRATION" MODEL PLEASE MAKE NO FURTHER USE OF THIS VIDEO (ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Infiniti, the premium brand of Nissan Motor Co, has launched an electric concept sedan named the Qs Inspiration at this week's 2019 Shanghai Auto Show in China.

The first electric car for Nissan Motor Co's premium brand Infiniti will be a sporty sedan produced in China, the Japanese carmaker said in a statement viewed by Reuters.

The vehicle would hit the market in around three years, Nissan officials said, and consumers got a taste when the company unveiled the Qs Inspiration electric sedan concept at Shanghai.

Automakers operating in China have to sell more so-called new-energy vehicles, either battery electric cars or plug-in electric hybrids, to comply with official production quotas designed to reduce smog.

It was not immediately clear whether Infiniti planned to produce its first electric vehicle in other markets.

An Infiniti spokesman said, however, the brand did not intend to export the e-sedan from China.

The planned e-sedan is part of Infiniti's longer-term strategy to significantly "electrify" its product lineup.

Brand officials have said that from 2021 every Infiniti model launched will be either an all-electric car or so-called "e-Power" hybrids, underlining Nissan's previously announced plan to make Infiniti primarily an electrified offering.

The e-sedan likely would be built on a new flexible architecture developed specifically to accommodate electrified powertrains, Infiniti said in the statement.
