Younger buyers are the target of this Infiniti Etherea Concept, which is a re-imagining of the compact luxury car. They offer a preview of the future range of Infiniti vehicles where its unconventional features are seen on its compact class for the first time. Etherea offers a dramatic new approach to the premium compact segment, utilizing uncompromising hybrid power and the highest driving pleasure.
Etherea was designed in Japan under the supervision of Shiro Nakamura. It is actually more of a coupe than a hatchback. It made use of multiple Infiniti design signatures that first appeared on the Infiniti Essence concept supercar. Its silhouette is unique and isn’t like anything that other models in its class has to offer. That’s because of Etherea’s dynamic character and highly sculptural form. Its B-pillar-less design and opposing doors open up the interior.
It also comes with stylish sleek consoles between the four seats to accommodate ancillary controls. Japanese culture is the inspiration of Etherea’s craftsmanship. But it has been re-interpreted with the use of pioneering technologies.
Like all Infiniti models, the Etherea has been given sports car features. This concept car is powered by a robust but very efficient hybrid drivetrain that was based on the electric motor/twin clutch system used on the 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid. Response is quick and its acceleration is strong due to its supercharged 245hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine. Meanwhile, the electric motor offers quiet emission-free driving at low speeds.
