Infiniti Working Closely on New Flagship Set for 2017 Reveal
|   Thursday, October 24, 2013
Infiniti is working on a new four door sports sedan, just like Porsche's Panamera, which is set to be its new flagship model for a whole new lineup. Infiniti wants to carve out a niche space for itself in global markets and is hence making certain arrangements to witness its success story. The company is looking forward to achieve sales targets of 500,000 annually by 2020 while adding another five new models to its current lineup.

Infiniti draws funds from Red Bull Racing and this initiative is a result of the same sponsorship.
Infiniti is in a position to expand and the firm wants to take this initiative to spread out to a wider audience base. Even though plans are yet to be finalized, we expect the Infiniti Q 100 to be its flagship model. Designing cues and exterior modifications could be based on suggestions made by Formula One Racecar Driver Sebastian Vettel, who is also its brand ambassador.

Infiniti is yet to announce a specific launch date for its new lineup, although we believe its new range to be out by 2017 – 2018. This vehicle is taking cues from Mercedes Benz's C and E class vehicles. Hence, we could look forward to something exciting within the next few months. This vehicle is based on Infiniti's latest Q 30 platform which takes inspiration from Mercedes Benz's latest MFA platform.

Vehicles are expected to draw similarities although its extent is yet unknown. Our vehicle seems to draw power from a mid ranged hybrid engine while technical advancements enable it to be economic and performance friendly. This is a deadly combination and we have been on a lookout for a vehicle sporting this combination since a long time. Infiniti revealed its Emerg-E Concept back in 2011 at Good Wood and we expect this vehicle to draw similarities with its latest designs.

Although Infiniti promised not to come up with a production version of the Emerg-E Concept, its Q 100 looks like a close sibling of this vehicle. As far as production ready super cars are concerned, the Q 100 is similar to vehicles manufactured by Aston Martin and Jaguar. Luxury is as keen as Ferrari while performance aspects are not far behind.

Center of gravity on this vehicle is well balanced while ride height is low, to ensure maximum ergonomics. This car sticks to asphalt on speed while its advanced range of sports rim and rubber enhances traction. A range of electronic drive assistant features such as Traction Control, Stability Control, ABS etc have been added to enhance safety while this reduces driver independence on the roll.

These features however are very important on wet surface areas and slippery conditions. Hence, Infiniti draws praise in these quarters. Considering this vehicle to be its flag ship, Infiniti has done a decent job as far as competitors are concerned. Refinement could however have been enhanced although performance and quality are satisfactory. An electric hybrid power train is expected soon although we have no news regarding this at the moment.
