Infiniti EMERG-E Sports car concept teased ahead of Geneva debut image

The Japanese based automaker Infiniti has released a series of teaser images of a new sports car concept, named the EMERGE-E, ahead of its 2012 Geneva Motor Show debut.

Infiniti has officially announced back in September, last year, that work has started on a new electric vehicle and now this EV is close to being unveiled. According to the Nissan luxury brand, the new Infiniti sports car concept will be named the EMERGE-E, and it will be officially unveiled next month at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Even if the Infiniti EMERGE-E has been teased by the Japanese manufacturer, we still don’t have too much data on it.

The upcoming sports car concept is rumored to come with a range-extended capability, just like the Chevrolet Volt, and this will be an important competitor to the North American vehicle, even if the two models are being sold in different segments of the market. Infiniti says that the EMERG-E sports car concept will be powered by a 1.2 liter engine, which will be mounted mid-ship for an optimal handling and weight distribution, and this will be helped on the way by an electric motor and a battery pack. The Infiniti electric sports car concept will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
