The Infiniti Emerg-E prototype has been recently taken to the Goodwood Festival of Speed where the model has flexed its muscles with Mark Webber behind the wheel.
After officially announcing that the Infiniti Emerg-E will be presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed just a few days ago, the Japanese vehicle is once again entering our news, this time with the car manufacturer releasing a video with the model at the British automotive event. According to the Japanese based automaker, the Infiniti Emerg-E has been driven at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by Mark Webber, the Red Bull racing F1 driver.
“Normally these motorshow concepts have a small electric motor fitted in them, just enough to move them on and off the stand. We said, how about putting a real car under there and showing what it would look like as a running vehicle, and at the same time use this collaboration of UK companies to demonstrate the UK’s capability in this area”, said the VP Vehicle Design Development and the Nissan Group Technology Centre Europe and chairman of the UK Automotive Council, Jerry Hardcastle.
Nissan didn’t announce any plans to build a production version of the Emerg-E but it seems that the vehicle is a glimpse at the company’s future. The Infiniti Emerg-E is powered by two electric motors and a three-cylinder petrol engine, which acts like a generator. The Evora based car is producing 402 HP and the 0 to 60 mph acceleration is done in approximately 4 seconds. Top speed is 130 mph (209 km/h) and the model can go on electricity alone for 30 miles (48 km).
