Infiniti has officially revealed its Qs Inspiration concept ahead of its public debut at the Shanghai motor show this week, albeit from the front only.

The first electric auto for Nissan Motor's premium brand Infiniti is going to be a sporty sedan produced in China, the Japanese automaker stated ahead of a public announcement.

The exterior features a range of futuristic shapes and highlights, while still maintaining a traditional "three box" sedan profile.

Its flexible platform was developed to work with the electrified powertrains Infiniti has coming down the pipe.

"For 30 years, Infiniti has built a reputation for introducing new technology that delights and gives confidence to drivers", he said.

"The age of electrification presents us with an opportunity to renew our credentials as an innovative challenger brand, ready to move quickly and decisively in this growing and exciting area of the market".

The model will be showcased at the upcoming Shanghai auto show later in April.

For Infiniti, the proposed e-sedan is part of a long-term strategy to "electrify" its product line up. An Infiniti spokesman said, however, the brand did not intend to export the e-sedan from China.

Infiniti Australia sales have, for the first quarter of the year, improved, increasing 55.8 per cent to 162 units compared to the same period last year.

Brand officials have stated that from 2021 every Infiniti model released will be either an all-electric vehicle or so-called "e-Power" hybrids, underscoring Nissan's previously announced strategy to make Infiniti primarily an electrified offering. EVs do not have bulky gasoline engines and transmissions, opening up space inside the auto.

"It will have a flat floor, and if you are a passenger you can cross your legs or stretch out your legs", Habib informed Reuters.

At the same time, competition is increasing in China's electric vehicle market with a barrage of new models coming from startups such as Nio and WM Motor plus offerings of several established automakers.

Christened, Qs Inspiration concept vehicle will be positioned in the luxury segment and compete directly with Tesla's Model S and Model X and many other models coming from the top automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, and Lexus.
