Nissan exec says Emerg-E like halo car is ready, waiting for approval

Andy Palmer, Nissan’s executive vie president of Global Future Vehicles, said in an interview with Automotive News that Nissan has a “halo car” inspired by the Infiniti Emerg-E concept electric vehicle in the plan, but it isn’t approved for production. Depending on sales of the Q50 and SUVs like the QX60 – if they go well, Palmer says he can take the car to Nissan’s approval committee to get the green light.

Infiniti sees the Emerg-E has a high end luxury car, not a supercar like the Lamborghini.

The Infiniti Emerg-E Concept Vehicle has 420hp from mid, twin electric motors that can accelerate the vehicle from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. It also has over 30 miles range on electric power alone. When the batteries are depleted, the range extender functions “in concert” with the twin electric motors.

  1. Hopefully the built in range extender will be more efficient than the one found in the Volt. As in, not OTTO cycle but Atkinson cycle or a variation of lean burn.
