Infiniti Emerg-E Concept was based on Lotus Evora

It’s very likely that Infiniti’s Emerg-E Concept, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, would enter production. This flagship mid-engined sports car is a plug-in hybrid too. The Emerg-E has the same layout and structure as the Lotus Evora. This concept was developed by Infiniti in Europe to benefit from the funding from Great Britain’s Technology Strategy Board, a government agency that encourages the advancement of new technologies that cut vehicular carbon emissions.

Lotus is a member of this organization, which is composed of numerous suppliers and universities. It’s notable that the Emerg-E and the Evora 414E Hybrid concept, which debuted in Geneva a couple of years ago, have a strong mechanical relationship.

It isn’t hard to imagine the Emerg-E to be the same as the Lotus 414E version 2.0. But the truth is that the styling of the Emerg-E is pure Infiniti.

The proposal by Randy Rodriguez from Infiniti’s California studio was used as its basis. Nissan design boss Shiro Nakamura directed its style. Nakamura said that they had set a goal to make a mid-engined sports car that was “less brutal” than others and had “graceful power.”

Its highlights include the air intakes topping the rear fenders. The Emerg-E’s two-seat cockpit has strong, flowing lines, building an intimate atmosphere that’s driver-focused. The dashboard has eyebrow-like cuts that conceal the air vents.

Its instruments are illuminated with blue lighting that becomes purple when the car is pushed harder. When the Emerg-E starts, the cabin gets burst of light instead of the usual engine sound. They fade out just after 3 seconds so that the driver doesn’t get distracted.
