Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept slated for Paris Motor Show launch

Infiniti has announced plans to unveil the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept at the Paris Motor Show on Oct. 2. The four-door hybrid-electric completes the “upper range” expansion of the Hong Kong-based brand that promises to soon start production in China and Europe to go along with U.S. and Japan factories.

The Q80 Inspiration is 198.9 inches in length with a 122.2-inch wheelbase accompanied by custom 22-inch five-dual-spoke lightweight alloy rims. The hybrid-electric vehicle has a width of 79.8 inches and height of 53.1 inches – which qualifies why Infiniti unabashedly refers to it as “expansive, edgy, sensual.”

The other cool aspects of the Inspiration are the absent side-door mirrors, acoustic glass as the roof – complimenting the chassis to ensure high-quality sound – and doors that open portal style. In other words: Welcome to the future, this is not your mid-90s Q45.

Aluminum, carbon fiber and leather were used in construction and consideration for space is evident. Still, this being a concept, Infiniti plans to refer to Q80 and implement the design across its vehicle line-up. The Q80 Inspiration, however, serves as the brand’s entry into an emerging class called premium fastback segment.

The Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept will formally debut at 15:30 (3:30 p.m.) on Oct. 2 in Hall 5 of the Parc des Expositions de Versailles.
