    Infiniti Halts Plans For Electric Car

    • The Infiniti LE Has Been Put On Hold

    Infiniti has quietly shelved plans to build the LE electric concept car.

    Introduced back at the 2012 New York Auto Show, the LE was Infiniti's version of the Nissan Leaf in a sleek four-door sedan. The big story about the LE was that it used inductive charging - a driver could drive the LE over a plate which would allow the vehicle to charge. Originally, the LE was expected to go into production in 2014, but it never came to fruition.

    "We have to be a little pragmatic," said Michael Bartsch, Infiniti's vice president for the Americas to USA Today. Bartsch explained that the company needs to focus on high-volume segments. Now that doesn't mean Infiniti has cancelled the LE project. The automaker could be waiting on improvements such as range from the battery.

    It would probably be fine without the induction charging. 


    It would, but I think it would be losing one of the key selling points of the vehicle.



    Why? All the other EVs out there have to plug in.  This car should have other selling points going for it besides that one feature to make it compelling.....


    ... but then again, if it doesn't, maybe that's why it was canceled.
