At Pebble Beach this year, INFINITI debuted the stunning Prototype 10, a single seat electric racer that was a both an homage to Formula 1’s golden era, and a statement about the company’s future.
Looking at its gorgeous lines, you’d be hard pressed not to call it beautiful, but even the most determined gearhead would never call it practical. The same could be said about its predecessor, the arguably even prettier Prototype 9, which wowed audiences at the legendary event in 2017.
But the electric concept INFINITI is bringing to the Detroit Auto Show next month looks like something you might actually see in the showroom of your local AutoNation dealer, and will provide a good look at where we can expect designers to take the brand in the coming years.
Details are few and far between at this point, as we don’t even know what the mystery machine will be called. What we do know is that it’s a crossover, and will be fully electric. Since INFINITI has pledged to electrify its entire lineup starting in 2021, this is the kind of product we can expect to flesh out its stable of vehicles, and if it’s anything like the race-inspired concepts we’ve seen previous, we expect it to be a work of art.
We’ll post most pics as soon as they’re available, and until then, stay tuned for more news about everything happening at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
