Pebble Beach to be Graced by Infiniti Electrified Performance Concept

Pebble Beach to be Graced by Infiniti Electrified Performance Concept

Another year, another interesting Pebble Beach-bound concept from Nissan’s luxury brand

The 2018 Pebble Concours d’Elegance is playing host to a number of extraordinary concepts, including one from Infiniti that’s being billed as an electric vehicle concept. The description doesn’t do justice to the accompanying teaser image, which shows the concept’s cabin taken from a birds-eye-view perspective. The teaser doesn’t reveal too much, but it does show enough for us to assume that the concept could have some loose connection to the Prototype 9 Concept that Infiniti showcased last year at Pebble Beach.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 Infiniti Project Black S

Let’s not beat around the bush here. The Infiniti Q60 is like the girl next door of the car world. She’s sexy, teases you from a distance with her sweet curves, and has an attitude to back up her good looks. In this case, however, the Q60 has a hotter sister, and the Project Black S is it. Go ahead, you know you want to add some car porn to your desktop ;)

Wallpaper of the Day: 2017 Infiniti QX30

Infiniti’s compact competitor that made a big splash

When Infiniti decided to enter the compact crossover segment, we were a little worried, but then we found out that the QX30 was going to have just the slightest bit of Mercedes DNA. We started to get excited. Come 2016, and we finally got to lay eyes on the 2017 QX30, and we were amazed. It’s currently giving the competition a serious run for their money and damn does it look good. Now that some time has passed since it made its debut, we’ve decided it’s about time for the QX30 to spend a little bit of time as TopSpeed’s official wallpaper. We’ve added it to every screen in the building, and we want to share our hand-picked favorite with you. Go ahead and spruce up your desktop with our favorite or one from our extended gallery.

2018 Infiniti QX80 by Larte Design

2018 Infiniti QX80 by Larte Design

There’s definitely no turning back for the QX80 if it gets this way-too aggressive body kit from the German tuner

For the longest time, the Infiniti QX80 suffered from a design that made it look like it preferred to be sleeping in a hammock than being out and about in the road. The refreshed 2018 model fixed some of those issues with new headlamps and a more upright profile, but there’s still something about the full-sized SUV’s design that lacks the personality that’s evident in the QX60 and QX70. Well, in times like this, the solution may not be found with the automaker itself, but rather, in the aftermarket tuning world. In this case, German tuner Larte Design is on the scene with a super aggressive body kit that not breathes much-needed life into Infiniti’s resident flagship SUV.

Subtle Update For The 2018.5 Infiniti QX30 Brings Important Safety Tech As Standard

Subtle Update For The 2018.5 Infiniti QX30 Brings Important Safety Tech As Standard

It is not exactly common to see a new car unveiled with a designation such as the 2018.5 Infiniti QX30. Nevertheless, Infiniti’s new QX30 received a few changes compared with the 2018 model. Most importantly, automatic emergency braking, previously optionally available only for top two trim levels, is now a standard issue across the range.

And the range has a different ring to it. For the 2018.5 Infiniti QX30 (official Infiniti designation, mind you), trim levels were renamed, equipment shuffled, and prices went up a bit. What once was Base, Luxury, and Premium, now is Pure, Luxe and Essential. It has a better ring to it without a doubt. The only trim level that retains the old name is the Sport.

With the Exception of the QX80, Infiniti’s Entire Lineup Will Have Some Sort of Electrification from 2021 On

The new e-Power platform will offer hybrid and EV solutions

Infiniti, Nissan’s luxury division, is working on a new platform for electric models that will hit the market in 2021. The underpinnings are said to debut in an all-electric model, but will eventually make in every model in the company’s lineup except the QX80. According to Automotive News, the SUV will continue to use the body-on-frame platform from the Nissan Armada/Patrol, while everything else will have some sort of electrification from 2021 onward.

Infiniti Will Take on Tesla, Mercedes with New Platform Based on the Q Inspiration Concept

Who knew the Q Inspiration Concept would be such an important prototype for Infiniti

When Infiniti rolled out the Q Inspiration Concept at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, not a lot of people thought that it would be such an important prototype for the company. It turns out; the Q Inspiration Concept isn’t only important in the loosest translation of the word, it’s important enough that Infiniti is using it as the basis for its future electrified vehicle platform. This new platform, according to Infiniti chairman Roland Krueger, will sit at the heart of the automaker’s future electric car lineup, which will include models that will take on Tesla, Mercedes EQ, and all other electric brands that are sprouting up these days.

Infiniti Q50, Q60, and Q70 to Ditch RWD Platform for Hybrid AWD Architecture Starting in 2021

Infiniti Q50, Q60, and Q70 to Ditch RWD Platform for Hybrid AWD Architecture Starting in 2021

Current versions will have to stay strong in the next three years

The Q50, Q60, and Q70 are all in dire need of generational evolution. But, don’t expect to see any of them until 2021 because Infiniti is still developing a new electrified platform with all-wheel drive that will take the reins from the aging FM rear-drive platform that’s currently underpinning all three models. Over the next three years, however, all three models will have to soldier on and hold the fort for Infiniti as it develops the next-generation platform that will underpin Infiniti’s models moving forward.

2018 Infiniti Q50 Sport - Driven

2018 Infiniti Q50 Sport - Driven

Every time I drive an Infiniti sedan or sport coupe, I’m struck by how much performance you get for your money. My time in a 2018 Infiniti Q50 Sport was no exception to the rule.

I found myself kind of falling for the Q50 Sport. It was handsome, it handled well, and it had a honey of an engine. Any car that gets those fundamentals right will win my respect and admiration, even if I think some things could be improved.

Infiniti’s F1-Bred and hybridized Q60 Black S Will Come to Paris in Production-Ready From

The question now is whether Infiniti thinks it’s worthy to be an actual production model

Barring the unexpected, the 2018 Paris Motor Show will play host to the production-ready Infiniti Q60 Black S hybrid. The performance coupe first entered our lives at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and in the year since its unveiling, Infiniti has fine-tuned it into becoming the what it claims as the first “accessible road car with up-to-date Formula One technology." It’s not clear yet if the automaker plans to approve the car for production, though if it did, it’s going to look like the model that we’ll be seeing in Paris later this year.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Limited

Full-sized SUV gets a shot of luxury and style

2018 Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept

2018 Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept

Is this the upcoming Q90 flagship sedan?

Infiniti has made tremendous progress in recent years, evolving from a brand that used to sell slightly more upscale Nissan models into a full-fledged luxury company that competes against the likes of Lexus and Lincoln. Come 2018, and the Japanese brand is looking to expand into new niches, including the electric car market. The Japanese firm is also readying a new design language, which was previewed at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show by the Q Inspiration concept.

A slightly futuristic midsize sedan, the Q Inspiration is giving us a glance into Infiniti’s future car design. It also signals a next-generation Q70 that’s sportier and uses a new-generation engine with variable compression ratio. "The premium sedan segment has become rather conservative. The Infiniti Q Inspiration previews something that could appeal to a younger audience, who seek modern design and new technologies to inspire and empower them," explained Christian Meunier, the company’s Global Division Vice President.

Infiniti didn’t say whether the Q Inspiration also previews an upcoming flagship sedan, but the concept car should serve as inspiration for all future products. Let’s have a closer look at what it brings to the table in the review below.

The Q Inspiration Concept Might Represent the Future of Infiniti, but Those Seats Will Never Make It

They look good, but they don’t look comfortable

Let’s get one thing straight. The Infiniti Q Inspiration is a stellar concept. It has its flaws, sure, but by and large, it provides a fascinating look into the automaker’s design future. But I’m not here to talk about the design elements the Q Inspiration hit; I’m here to discuss those seats, which are, in my opinion, one of the concept’s weak links. They fit into what concept seats should look like, but as far as seeing them in a production Infiniti in the future, I’m hedging my bets. I don’t think they’ll get that far.

2018 Infiniti QX30 Sport

Infiniti makes a lot of fun cars and SUVs. But the QX30 may be the best offering in the range on a fun-per-dollar basis — particularly the 2018 QX30 Sport.

Sharing a lot in common with the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, the smallest Infiniti crossover is eager to clip apexes on your favorite twisty road. Yet it remains practical enough for a small family to use as a daily driver, and cheap enough to make it attractive to people who might not be luxury-brand regulars.
