Benchmarking Tesla Model S? Infiniti plans to launch an electric version of the Q70

Infiniti to launch electric version of Q70, competing with Tesla Model S

【PhoneAuto News】After years of silence, Infiniti seems to want to regain market attention through electrification. The company recently unveiled a new brand logo, hoping to continue to hold a place in the market through change. And recently, there is news that Infiniti is preparing to launch four new models by the end of 2027. It is said that this includes a redesigned QX80, a new QX65 SUV, and two electric vehicles.


According to reports, the redesigned QX80 will be launched next summer with a price tag of over $100,000 (approximately 725,000 yuan). If this price is confirmed, it could be a huge leap for the brand, as the current starting price for this model is $72,700 (approximately 527,000 yuan). Although there is still a year before the release of this SUV, there are rumors that the new car will adopt a more bold design style, similar to the imposing appearance of the Land Rover Range Rover.

It is said that the model will also offer a more elegant interior, similar to the Mercedes-Maybach GLS. It will be equipped with a 24-inch dual-screen, including a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch infotainment system. The vehicle will also provide a digital air conditioning panel, automatic air conditioning, and a more spacious third-row seating space. The new car will use a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine to replace the previous V8 engine, capable of generating a maximum power of 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts).

In addition to fuel cars, Infiniti will also bring its own pure electric car models. Nissan is one of the first companies to develop electric vehicles, but Infiniti has been observing. When other car companies have begun to enter the field of electric vehicles, the already lagging Infiniti has also decided to accelerate its pace. Reports indicate that Infiniti will launch a pure electric version of the Q70. The current fuel version has not been updated for some time, and the new pure electric version of the Q70 will be a sleek sedan with Porsche features, and in terms of positioning, it may take aim at Tesla’s luxury Model S.
