We say “could be” because Infiniti is being extremely cagey with its information on this one, showing only part of the car’s grille featuring Infiniti’s current styling lines.
A short press release from the Japanese carmaker says “soon, Infiniti will share a vision, its soul, on a scale not seen before from the company”.
The key words there are clearly “scale not seen before”, suggesting a segment of the market not currently occupied by an Infiniti product.
Infiniti has hinted at a midsized electric sedan, along with new performance models and a flagship coupe throughout 2014, but these variants would likely stand beside similarly-sized models in the current line-up.
That leaves the rumoured QX30; which satisfies the ‘scale not seen before’ part of the clue and gives Infiniti a player in the fast-growing compact SUV segment.
Infiniti ends with “À bientôt”, meaning “see you soon” – in French. So what can we expect from Infiniti with this concept, likely to appear at the Paris Motor Show? Stay tuned…
