Infiniti Emerg-e Concept Makes North American Debut at 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Aug. 16, 2012) - The Infiniti Emerg-e Concept, the latest embodiment of Infiniti Inspired Performance, makes its North American debut this weekend during festivities surrounding the 62nd annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, one of the world's premier celebrations of the automobile. The Infiniti Emerg-E is a two-place hybrid gasoline-electric concept that made its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Infiniti proves with the EMERG-E that the emergence of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles does not signify the death of the sports car-far from it. The Infiniti EMERG-E is powered by twin electric motors with an onboard range-extending three-cylinder gasoline engine. Infiniti EMERG-E is blazing a trail along the Automotive Council Technology Group roadmap, which sets out objectives for environmental sustainability in automobiles. A mandate from the UK Government requires the development of innovative powertrains, such as the range-extender technology used in EMERG-E, to reduce CO2 emissions. Infiniti Emerg-e Concept Under the skin, this is an extended-range battery hybrid. Its 400 lb, 17kWh Amberjack lithium-ion battery sits behind the seats, along with four separate inverters. The Infiniti Emerg-E Concept, which made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, is a highly advanced mid-ship sports car that provides an exciting glimpse into Infiniti's future. Infiniti Emerg-E is physical proof of Infiniti's intention to produce a bold halo model befitting the brand's promise of Inspired Performance, and also signals an array of exciting new technologies that the brand will adopt in its quest to build dramatic and sustainable high performance cars. The Infiniti Emerg-E is a concept sports car developed by the Infiniti division of Nissan Motors and was unveiled to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the Lotus Evora platform and the hybrid powertrain shown in 2012 as the Lotus 414E concept car. MotoMan drives the Infiniti Emerg-E on a disused airfield to learn about the technology from carbon fibre body panels to a 3 cylinder range extending generator.
