infiniti etherea for lease
Composed of sedans, coupes and SUVs V6 and V8 engines, the Infiniti range just arrived in Europe is beginning to be appreciated at home with the recent arrival of diesel models.
However, the label elitist Nissan believes that true recognition also requires an access model whose silhouette was unveiled in Geneva.
According to Toru Saito Senior Vice President Brand, the concept Etherea intended to illustrate a new type of luxury in a compact body of 4.40 meters.
Bending, digging and shaping the forms, the designers are given away to heart's content to achieve a fairly troubled but dynamic silhouette. The originality of the front panel on the treatment of the grille to the tip of the fold of the two wheel arches.
The concave and convex sides playing with lighting effects provide some sporty profile while the rear incorporates quite successful fire recalling the keen eye of an eagle. The shape of the Z rear panoramic roof also contributes to the uniqueness of the set as well as highlight the small spoiler on the lid of the trunk.
Trend requires, boarding is facilitated by doors opening and absence of antagonist pillar.
The bright interior is distinguished by the undulations of a dashboard cleaned of any order unnecessary. All that remains of the touch screen navigation and programming.
To be in "move" environmental, ether inherits a hybrid similar to that of the Infiniti M35h. It combines a 4-cylinder thermal compressor 245 hp and an electric motor. The transmission of power to the front wheels is a first for Infiniti, takes place through a CVT continuously variable. Not on the driveability benefits.
Of ether in gasoline
After its Essence concept sports, two years ago, Infiniti puts the wheels on the ground. It reveals a more pragmatic, ether, to prefigure the lines of his future compact sedan.
Since its introduction in the French market in late 2008, Infiniti has a discreet place to say the least. With 267 sales last year, the luxury brand of Nissan has not even reached the level of Ferrari, despite the arrival of a diesel in its lineup. To finally get out of confidentiality, the brand is therefore preparing a model more accessible. And that's the concept Ether ("ether" in Latin), unveiled at the next Geneva Motor Show, which is responsible for announcing the change. With 4.40 m long, he is much more compact than the G37 family (4.78 m) and approaches the size of the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series and Lexus CT. Five doors, a tailgate: the recipe used is not revolutionary, especially since this "small" Infiniti should have front wheel drive.
However, the line is surprising. If the tapered headlights and the large trapezoidal grille evoke the road M and FX SUV, the rear pillar-shaped point of the study is based Gas, presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2009. MPV profile almost does not lack originality. The general shape remains realistic enough to be kept on the production model, to be launched in 2012. The mechanical hybrid concept should also be preserved. And to show reasonable rates, ether production will benefit from the recently signed partnership between Renault-Nissan and Daimler, to use the original four-cylinder Mercedes.
