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."

There's an extensive photo gallery with this story and I think you'll agree, they have styled a beautiful automobile.

I think this is pretty cool and it kind of appears that this will be the way most cars in the future may go? I do have a question though? How can you maintain 400 H.P. worth of electric motors with a little 3 cylinder I.C. engine? The physics just don't add up to me but I'm not an engineer so maybe some one can explain it to me? :-)

It is designed in a way that you do'nt normally associate with premium Japanese cars.In other words...it's beautiful.I hope they go through with it.

@ mrhuckfin: for sure the thermal motor won't be able to let u drive at full speed in nurburing or in indianapolis. But in other formula one tracks, with regenerative braking, could go.. Not to speak on real streets, I really do not know where it is possible to use 400 bhp for longer than 10 seconds, (empty autobahn?). Regenerative motor work is completely inidpendent from power instantbrequirement!

Nice looking car, interior as well. The Jaguar C-X75 beats it in my view (they're after the same market), but it looks like Infiniti did a great job here.

A three cylinder can charge a bank of batteries for a high power sports car because an electric motor is approx. 95% efficient, using no current when stopped, charging when stopping and rarely are traveling at top speed. Also, electric options do not require an internal combustion motor to run constantly just to keep options (power steering and brakes, AC, etc...) working.
