2014 Infiniti Etherea EV to be based on LEAF Powertrain [VIDEO]



Infiniti's first all-electric car will be a large luxury sedan built on stretched Nissan Leaf underpinnings, according to Nissan’s executive vice-president of product development, Andy Palmer.

Mr Palmer said the three-box electric vehicle (EV) is one of 14 cars in the pipeline for Nissan’s luxury brand, with others including the all-new third-generation Infiniti G – the company’s BMW 5 Series competitor – and an entry-level hatchback being developed in league with Mercedes-Benz on the German company’s MFA platform that spawned the A-class and B-class.

Mr Palmer described the entry-level hatchback – previewed the vehicle as the Etherea concept at the Geneva show last year – as an Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series competitor.
