The design of the Q30 Concept looks sharp and appears to have been designed with plenty of inspiration from other Infiniti concepts from previous years, including the Etherea . Incidentally, the latter was also a compact concept that was introduced a few years ago.
One of the few details we have of the Q30 Concept is that it will carry the same front-wheel-drive platform that you can find in the new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class . That’s not a coincidence, considering that the two brands joined forces a few years ago to share some of its technology and development know-how with each other.
The engine for the concept will likely come in the form of a hybrid although don’t be surprised if the production version opts for the more traditional four-cylinder engine.
Another curious tidbit about the Q30 Concept is the involvement of Infiniti’s director of performance, Sebastian Vettel. Yep, the reigning F1 world champion will be heavily involved in the development of the production model so that’s something we can all look forward to as well.
