Infiniti's first electric vehicle will hit showrooms in 2013; here's the design sketch
Though the Leaf grabs most of the electric vehicle (EV) headlines, Nissan's luxury brand, Infiniti, will soon capture some of the spotlight as well. Last year, Nissan announced that the company had at least three EVs in the works. One was the Leaf, the others included the NV200 light commercial van and a compact four-passenger vehicle bearing the Infiniti logo. We later learned that Infiniti's first EV would be based on the Leaf's platform and also discovered that this offering would live up to the performance image that the brand has been trying to nurture.
Now there's more. Infiniti, via its Facebook page, has revealed that its first battery-powered vehicle will debut in 2013. The company also posted the design sketch seen above.
