Infiniti Essence is just a concept … for now, executive says | Rpmgo.com



Infiniti really impressed everyone when it showcased its concept hybrid supercar, the Essence, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Powered by twin-turbo V6 running in tandem with an electric motor, it was capable of delivering a combined rating of 592 HP.

Now, talking in hindsight about the concept, one of Infiniti’s executives, Ben Poore, revealed that it was phenomenal, and opted to tease fans and the auto press by saying that the Essence concept is “only a show piece… for now.”

Could this concept preview the premium all-electric sportscar that Renault-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn was talking about at the Tokyo Motor Show? Nobody knows, but hopefully we will see this model, in one way or another, reach production soon enough.
