  • INFINITI unveils Q80 Inspiration, a four-door vision of a future premium sedan
  • Innovative autonomous driving technology and human-centric interior details make Q80 Inspiration the premium car of tomorrow
  • 2015 INFINITI Q70 makes European debut with new exterior

HONG KONG – INFINITI signals a clear intent to break into the top tier of the premium sedan category with the eye-catching Q80 Inspiration concept car revealed today at the 2014 Paris Motor Show by INFINITI Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa, François Goupil de Bouillé, and INFINITI's Executive Design Director, Alfonso Albaisa.

The four-door fastback aims to shake up the segment with progressive body styling and daring proportions that challenge convention. At five meters long and two meters wide, the Q80 Inspiration is only 53.1 inches (1350mm) at its highest point, further underlining its fastback contours.

Portal-style doors open into an artistically tailored interior which pampers the senses. The four individual leather seats give equal importance to driver and passengers, while the plunging panoramic glass roof creates a light, airy environment inside.

Showcasing ingenious innovations, the Q80 Inspiration previews autonomous driving technology which empowers and enhances the driving experience. It also provides a glimpse into a high-performance and efficient hybrid electric powertrain that is expected to deliver 550hp while returning 5.5L/100km.

In addition, the new 2015 INFINITI Q70 made its premiere in Europe during the show, allowing visitors to admire the performance sedan's fresh new looks. Powered by a new 2.2-liter, four-cylinder turbo diesel engine, it delivers 170 hp of power and 400 Nm of torque while retaining low carbon dioxide emissions.

Both the Q80 Inspiration concept and the new Q70 sedan embody the expansion of INFINITI's upper range, providing strong indication that INFINITI is on track to increase its vehicle portfolio by 60 percent over the next five years, and to more than double the number of engines and transmissions.

INFINITI Motor Company Ltd. is headquartered in Hong Kong with sales operations in over 50 countries. The INFINITI brand was launched in 1989. Its range of premium automobiles is currently built in manufacturing facilities in Japan and the United States. Production in China and the UK will start soon along with the expansion of the brand's portfolio. INFINITI plans to also expand manufacturing into Mexico by 2017.

As the Title Partner and Vehicle Performance Partner of INFINITI Red Bull Racing, INFINITI has a far-reaching technical collaboration with the Formula One team, and Sebastian Vettel, its four-time World Champion driver, serves as INFINITI's Director of Performance.
