With the 2012 NY Auto Show underway, there’s sure to be a lot to catch up with-

The first glimpse we’ve caught is the Infinite LE Concept. Though it is not in production just yet, the word we heard is that consumers can expect to see a showroom version of the all electric- zero emission sedan within the next two years.

“Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore explained,  Infiniti believes the future of luxury is sustainable luxury and we intend to continue taking a leadership role, building on the foundation set by our advanced Infiniti M Hybrid and high-mpg Infiniti JX luxury crossover. The LE Concept’s bold exterior is defined by its underlying high performance. It is first and foremost an Infiniti, born of our philosophy of Inspired Performance. Rather than taking an EV and adding an Infiniti badge, we are taking an Infiniti and removing the tailpipe. Infiniti is all about challenging convention, which this vehicle does – proving that luxury at the next level can be both gorgeous and zero emission.”

Among the key features and innovations of the Infiniti LE Concept are:
Luxury sedan style, combining signature Infiniti design cues with EV aerodynamic efficiency
Exceptional acceleration and re-acceleration, providing a new level of luxury driving experience
Leading-edge compact Lithium-ion battery technology
Smart hospitality, featuring a quiet, luxurious Infiniti interior and next-gen Infiniti Connection, Infiniti Personal Assistant and EV connected services
Innovative, intuitive home-based Wireless Charging System with Intelligent Park Assist
