Infiniti’s Gas-Powered Electric Vehicles

Infiniti's Gas-Powered Electric Vehicles

December 6, 2019 by

It sounds a bit oxymoronic, right? A gas-powered electric vehicle? Yes, that’s right, Infiniti is set to begin their transformation into an all-electric vehicle lineup and is looking to bridge the gap between all electric vehicles and gasoline powered ones. In the next two years, almost every future Infiniti vehicle will offer drivers the choice of gas-generated and pure EV powertrains. The gas generated electric vehicles use a pair of high output electric motors and a low-capacity battery pack, which is recharged constantly by a three-cylinder 1.5-liter gasoline generator. The result is a powertrain which delivers the serene, immediate performance of an electric car, and the convenience of a gasoline-powered vehicle – with significantly reduced emissions. For people who do not have access to at home or public charging stations, this might be the perfect solution.

For electric vehicles, the space between the two axles will be given over to a high-capacity battery pack. Vehicles equipped with INFINITI's gas-generated EV powertrain will see the same space occupied by a significantly smaller battery pack, fuel tank and exhaust system, with the 1.5-liter VC-Turbo generator located at the front to feed power to the battery pack. In both instances, drive is provided solely by electric motors. Infiniti promises impressive performance for the higher end models too, with zero to 60 mph sprints expected to be in the 4.5 second range. Keep your eye on Infiniti, this technology is exciting and is a great bridge to a fully electrified lineup.
