LE concept is “80%” of production Infiniti

Infiniti says its concept electric vehicle, the LE Concept, is “probably 80%” of the production car which will come to market in 2014.

Based on the Nissan Leaf (although there are no similarities in design), the LE also features technology that will be cascaded out to other models, such as a split screen sat-nav, which separates the map from the menu.

The car features advanced wireless charging that is completely hands free. There are no plugs or cables to handle; instead Intelligent Park Assist automatically guides the vehicle into position over the wireless charging pad, guaranteeing an efficient, simply charge.

While the drive train could be used as the basis for more EVs, it is unlikely to go into existing models.

“The alliance has a reputation for building electric vehicles that are bespoke,” said Tony Lewis, Infiniti director for Northern Europe.
