Infiniti Etherea Concept For the 2011 Geneva Motor Show
Infiniti released first images of its concept car for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The pictures show an evolving Infiniti identity along with a profile distinctly different from anything currently available in the premium compact class. Infiniti Etherea Concept is a compact luxury model that previews how a future entry-level Infiniti could look.
Designed under the direction of Senior Vice President of Design Shiro Nakamura,, the Etherea "blends elements of coupé, sedan, hatchback and even crossover in one highly sculptural, near-mono volume form." Overall, the concept measures 4.4 meters long and features a panoramic glass roof, an illuminated grille, and a distinctive C-pillar.
Among its surprises are high-tech new interpretations of traditional Japanese materials and finishes, and several design cues set to make their mark on future production models - including the highly distinctive crescent-shaped C-pillar first seen on the Essence concept .
While no interior pictures were released, Infiniti says the cabin has high-tech variations of traditional Japanese materials and finishes.
The car will be officially unveiled on March 1st, so stay tuned for more information.
