Infinit's long awaited range-extended electric sports car the Emerg-E has been shown in Geneva and the specs we've been awaiting are official: 402 bhp (300 kW), 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds; a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h); a 300-mile (483-km) range using the three-cylinder range-extender with 30 miles (48 km) electric-only; CO2 output of 55g/km (NEDC cycle)
There are two electric motors in the center of the vehicle and they drive the rear wheels, so the intention seems to be to create a brand hero with extraordinary dynamic performance, so we just might see this car released. Yet another pointer to the release of the vehicle is Infiniti's role in the UK government's Technology Strategy Board initiative, whose aim is to speed the arrival of low-emission vehicles. The Emerg-E is the first Infiniti to have been developed in Europe and its advanced technology deliberately draws on suppliers beyond Infiniti's usual base in "the quest to uncover the most innovative hardware and the deepest knowledge base."
