The Infiniti QX Inspiration is only a concept car, but it’s a first for Infiniti – it’s an all-electric vehicle.

On Friday, the Japanese car maker gave a first look at the electric SUV that will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Jan. 14. Last month Infiniti dropped some clues about the car, but now we know a bit more.

The Inspiration is a luxury vehicle, so it’s very much a Tesla Model X competitor. Few details were shared about its battery or capabilities, but it will be “high-performance” and feature a “spacious, lounge-like interior,” according to the company.

The new vehicle is the latest electric SUV to enter the scene after a 2018 filled with Model X wannabes: Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-tron, Mercedes EQC, and newcomer Rivian’s R1S.

Infiniti’s parent company is Nissan, which has been long associated with electric because of the more budget-friendly Nissan Leaf. Tesla’s electric SUV starts at $70,000 compared to the Leaf’s $29,000. 

The Infiniti SUV will certainly be a vehicle at a higher price-point more in line with the Model X, but it at least brings in Infiniti into the electric fray.
