Very few details about the new Infiniti Q50 have been released but to whet our appetite before it’s previewed at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show, a video has been made public. Infiniti design boss, Shiro Nakamura, said that the Q50, the replacement for the G-series saloon, will be “much sportier and more dynamic” than the existing car.
The teaser video indicates a heavily sculpted headlight, which has a close resemblance to the Infiniti LE concept that was seen at the New York motor show last year. This model will then be promoted as an upscale version of the Nissan LEAF. However, the Q50 is being targeted at the BMW 3-series and Audi A4.
Infiniti has said previously that the Q50 will be powered by Mercedes-sourced four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.
The Q50 will also be the first new model to have Infiniti's new naming structure, which seeks to offer more clarity to its model ranges. After the Infiniti Q50 is previewed in Detroit, it will be seen next in Europe at the Geneva motor show before it starts selling in the autumn.
