Infiniti will present the new LE Concept during the 2012 Paris Motor Show next month, which is the first 100 percent electric vehicle ever developed by the company.

The 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show will keep everyone busy for days thanks to all the premieres and between those, the LE Concept will definitely shine, especially because this is the very first ever electric vehicle to be developed by Infiniti. According to Nissan’s luxury brand, the Infiniti LE Concept is based on the Nissan Leaf and from its brother, the model is getting the power train, while the body and interior design are signed by Infiniti.

As you can see from the images posted below, the exterior design of the LE Concept is inspired from other concept cars made by Infiniti, including the beautiful Emerg-E, which was revealed in Geneva. The car manufacturer is promising a full production version based on the LE Concept, which is expected to make its way onto the market over a period of two years. The production version of the Infiniti LE Concept is expected to be more powerful than the concept, which is getting 135 HP and 325 Nm of torque. The LE Concept has a range of 160 km (100 miles) and, thanks to a quick charge system, the 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack can be charged up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
