Meet Prototype 10. This new concept car is the perfect incarnation of INFINITI’s vision of an electrified future. The Prototype 10 concept re-imagines the classic speedster to represent our passion for thrilling performance and pure driving pleasure.
The Infiniti hasn’t revealed any engineering details.Like the Prototype 9, the 10 is running the powertrain from the latest Nissan Leaf, which includes a 40-kWh battery and a 147-horsepower motor. No words on specs either, but no matter—the 0 to 60 mph time of a car that never gets made isn’t exactly important.
One seat – obviously – mounted low on the flat floor, a four-point harness and brake/accelerator pedals.The steering wheel is a flat-bottomed item mounted on two carbon struts, though because this is an Infiniti isn’t actually connected to the front wheels, given the company’s use of steer-by-wire tech.
“Our electric vehicle architecture represents a turning point for our design teams, a chance to present alternative proportions with different shapes. This new design language prioritizes clean, efficient lines with which we can articulate a new, confident design language.”
