Infiniti aims to go electric starting in 2021 Infiniti will introduce all-electric vehicle in 2021

To further differentiate itself from Nissan, luxury brand Infiniti will aggressively adopt electrification, Nissan chief executive Hiroto Saikawa has revealed at the Detroit Auto Show. It's part of Infiniti's plan to play catch up with the competition.

The announcement follows several similar pledges by other automakers, including Volvo's vow to make a similar move in 2019.

In Australia, Infiniti now only offers the one hybrid model in its line-up, the 3.5-litre V6 petrol-electric Q50 sedan that produces a sports car-like 268kW and 546Nm when combined with its single electric motor. It sold 246,492 vehicles worldwide in 2017, up 7 percent from the prior year.

The Q Inspiration concept also makes use of Infiniti's Nissan connection with the fitment of clever "pro PILOT" autonomous technology, which allows the vehicle to drive itself on motorways and even at junctions.

The sedan's direct, clear lines are combined with bold, chiseled styling that will form the basis of the future of the Infiniti brand's sedan design, with a coupe-like roofline and mid-size sedan proportions.

Ashes 2017: Joe Root reacts to Ricky Ponting calling him 'little boy'
Anderson remarked last week Australia have "got problems" beyond their gun pace trio of Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins . Ponting's comments came after the tourists were thumped in Perth, with the Ashes conceded despite two tests remaining.

After a breathtaking appearance in Detroit with the Q Inspiration Concept, Infiniti is also laying out some of the brand's plans for the future. In 2012, the company unveiled the Infiniti LE concept at the NY auto show - a model that would have been an upgraded variation of the Nissan Leaf.

Saikawa said that the electrification strategy probably will have one exception - the company's full-size body-on-frame QX80 SUV. Infiniti says a version of its variable-compression VC-Turbo engine powers the concept.

In this regard, Infiniti says it will offer electrified powertrains starting with 2021, with the same year being marked as the debut timeframe for an all-electric auto.

Nissan officials have said ePower is an alternative to a pure battery-powered electric vehicle.
