The annual Detroit Motor Show is getting underway Stateside, with the event setting the tone for several carmakers with a strong presence in that region. If the first few reveals we’ve seen so far are anything to go by, it appears as if electric vehicles (EVs) will be a significant trend.

We’ve already seen Cadillac debut an electric vehicle this week, and now Japanese company Infiniti has showcased their QX Inspiration concept car.

The vehicle will not go on sale, but will rather serve as a reference for how Infiniti plans to design all-electric cars moving forward.

“The QX Inspiration marks the beginning of a new generation of INFINITI cars and establishes a direct blueprint for the brand’s first electric vehicle. Based on a new, dedicated electric vehicle architecture and inspired by INFINITI’s Japanese DNA, the SUV concept previews a product portfolio which will offer high performance, ultra-low emissions, and total range confidence,” said president, Christian Meunier, in a press statement.

Being a concept car there are no firm details as to the battery that the QX Inspiration touts, which means we don’t know how future Infiniti all-electric cars will perform in future.

With several carmakers, specifically those hailing from Germany, already well into their EV roadmap, Infiniti certainly has a bit of catching up to do.

Hopefully as the Detroit Motor Show continues throughout this month the Japanese company will be more forthcoming as to when all-electric cars will be hitting roads, and what kind of battery they aim to employ.
