Infiniti has confirmed that it will introduce a range of new vehicles with electrified powertrains from 2021.
Nissan chief executive officer Hiroto Saikawa made the announcement at the Automotive News World Congress yesterday.
A statement issued by the company said: “A mix of pure electric vehicles and e-power vehicles will be offered – demonstrating the full range of ultra-low emission vehicle technology available to Infiniti as the premium brand within the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
Infiniti’s e-power technology features a small petrol engine, similar to the range extender on a BMW i3, which is used to charge the battery, eliminating the need for an external charging source.
The company says this will offer drivers the convenience of re-fuelling a petrol, while offering the same driving experience as a pure electric vehicle.
As a result of this emphasis on ultra-low emission technology, Infiniti expects more than half its global sales to be comprised of electric vehicles by 2025.
