    Infiniti Qs Inspiration Leaks Out Ahead of Shanghai

      ...could be heading for production in China...

    Infiniti's Qs Inspiration sedan that was teased a few days ago has leaked out ahead of the Shanghai Motor Show.  The Inspiration Qs is a preview of what an Infiniti electric car will look like. 

    infiniti-qs-1 (4).jpgThe EV that comes from the Qs Inspiration's ..er.. inspiration will be manufactured and sold in China in about 3 years.  There are no plans yet to export that car to other markets.  Infiniti has said that by 2021 all newly launched models will be EVs or "e-Power" hybrids. 

    For the Qs Inspiration, designer Karim Habib had a freer hand in the design as EVs do not have the bulk of the mechanicals the accompany internal combustion engines.  Floors can be flat and interior room can be greatly increased.  

    Infiniti will be competing with Tesla, Audi, Polestar, and others in the EV race in China.

    We'll have more for you once the official release of the Infiniti Qs Inspiration concept is made in Shanghai.

    OK, blah to the coupe look, again over done IMHO. Yet, overall clean and nice, has a luxury look to it that Tesla I feel is missing. The front end is especially nice compared to the blah blunt nose of a Tesla.

      Nissan is known for their Zero Gravity Seats found in many of their vehicles, some of the most comfortable cars seats I've found in the industry.  Nissan took that experience and applied it to three gaming chair concepts aimed at the gaming crowd.
      First of the three is a chair based on the Nissan GT-R Nismo (shown above). It's made from carbon fiber and aluminum and shaped like a racing seat. The soft areas are covered with a red leather and synthetic suede surfaces.
      My personal favorite is the Nissan Armada. Inspired by Nissan's full-size SUV, the chair is based on the Platinum Reserve with black and brown leather seating surfaces in the shape of a captain's chair. It has climate controlled heating and cooling with lumbar support for additional comfort.

      Finally, the Nissan Leaf. It features gun metal painted surfaces with light-gray leather-appointed seats with electric blue inserts, usb charging ports, and integrated leg rests.

      Unfortunately, Nissan has no current plans to build any of these chairs, but is gauging public reaction.  If you are interested in one of these chairs, but sure to tweet them at @NissanUSA.  What say you reader? Should Nissan build one of these models?

      Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Vision EQS Concept today in Frankfurt. The Vision EQS represents the future of luxurious driving. 
      Powering the Vision EQS is a dual motor system with continuous all wheel drive with approximately 469 horsepower and with about 560 lbs.-ft of torque. The juice for all that power comes from an approximately 100 kWh battery.  The top speed is estimated at 124 mph and 0 to 60 will happen in less than four and a half seconds.  The Vision EQS is capable of DC fast charging up to 350 KW. Range is estimated at around 435 on the WLTP rating cycle. 
      The interior of the EQS is intended to remind passengers of the deck of a boat, taking its inspiration from luxury yachts. The interior uses a portion of recycled plastic reclaimed from ocean waste. The wood is Maple from ecologically managed forests in Germany.  By using wood from Germany, it ensures a short transportation distance to reduce the CO2 output of the assembly process.

      BMW released a preview of the BMW Concept 4 for the Frankfurt Auto Show today.  The concept features a large vertical grille that will become the new face of the BMW 4-series. The slim headlights have no glass cover allowing a sculptured look to the LED elements. The 4-series features a stretched out hood, long wheelbase, and short overhangs to give an elegant and sporty appearence while the wheel arches contribute to a powerful stance.
      BMW did not give any hints as to the powertrain, but the 4-series currently comes in 248 horsepower, 320 horsepower, and 425 horsepower flavors. 
      This low slung concept is clearly an early look at the next 4-series refresh coming in about a year.

    • Mercedes does offer way more variety in body styles...Mercedes has  coupes, hardtop coupes, convertibles, 2 seaters, sports cars, wagons, etc.    Cadillac has only sedans, a full size SUV, and 3 CUVs.
    • You said they don't compare, which they definitely do. Both are long standing luxury marques, both build sedans and coupes with standard and performance versions and SUV's/CUV's although nothing Mercedes builds can touch the Escalade and probably never will. Lets check the Recall list for both as well. So tell me what edge you think Mercedes has on Cadillac, I'm intrigued.
    • Handling. The Alpha chassis is one of the best out there for it.  That's not a new thing either.  The first gen CTS-V would beat an M3 around a track even though it was M5 sized. 
    • Have you driven a newer Cadillac? I have owned a 2013 CTS Coupe that I bought in 2015 and it was a great car that was quick and handled very well and definitely compared to a Mercedes at the time. 2008 was a huge jump in quality and performance for Cadillac with the second gen. CTS then CTS-V in 2009 and 2014 and newer Cadillac's are on par or better in some ways than Mercedes. Mercedes is another manf. resting on their laurels, the quality and reliability has taken a big hit. I have a neighbor who is a mechanic for a local MB dealer and he says they are buried back in the shop with recalls and other repairs. MB QC dept. is scrambling at the moment. Now to compare a Lincoln to a Mercedes? Yes, you're right Mercedes whoops them.
    • In what ways does Cadillac have an edge on Mercedes? I'm counting all of zero, outside of the consumer truck market.
