Before Tesla that was a fairly common pace for car companies. Talk talk talk, slow iteration, tiny evolution. In this same ten year period tesla has gone from no cars to four, one of which is the fastest sedan ever, another the fastest SUV ever, all of which are the first truly decent ranged EVs ever, and they have more cars on the road with half decent autonomous features than any other brand.

Hopefully, a ~99%-electric-miles option, using a 20 to 40 available kWh pack with DC charge capability will be offered for the e-Power version.

INFINITI'S NEW EV PLATFORM IS READY FOR PRODUCTION

Underpinning works with full-electric and hybrid powertrains
APRIL 30, 2018


For months, engineers in Japan labored in near secrecy to develop a platform that could take Infiniti into a bold new future.

When they unveiled the prototype last summer to Nissan Motor Co. CEO Hiroto Saikawa, he couldn't stop doing laps around the test track at Nissan's Atsugi technical center.

"He was very enthusiastic," Infiniti President Roland Krueger recalled.

Less than a year later, Nissan's luxury brand says the new architecture will underpin its entire lineup when Infiniti shifts to exclusively electrified powertrains in 2021.

Announcing the platform ahead of last week's Beijing auto show, Krueger said it will be unique to Infiniti and will share only select components with the mass-market Nissan marque...

The platform will be designed to house either of two powertrains that will drive all newly redesigned Infiniti vehicles from 2021: a full electric, battery-driven motor, or Nissan's e-Power range-extender hybrid setup...

Maximum output of the new powertrains should be equivalent up to 400 hp, and range should be at least 311 miles for the full electric variants, Krueger added.

Engineers are debating the EV-only driving range of the e-Power versions...

It will accommodate the variable compression engine and electric motor in the front compartment and another electric motor in the back for all-wheel drive, said Francois Bancon, who leads Infiniti's connectivity and autonomous driving development.

A third motor can be added for more performance, he said...
