Default Infiniti Q30 Based on Etherea Concept Car

It turns out that the 2011 Etherea Concept car that was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show was probably a preview of the Infiniti Q30 and not just a fun design project. The concept car is said to combine elements of a coupe, sedan, crossover, and hatchback (I'm sure that clears things up for you.) This concept car has a hybrid 2.5L four cylinder engine that gives 245hp.



I am a huge fan of the design of the car. I think that it is forward thinking and almost futuristic. Of course, that is what a concept car is supposed to be. The production model will likely be much more tame in its design.



How do you like this concept car and how do you think it will translate to a production model?

In all honesty, I think the Infiniti Q30 would look best in coupe form. Since there is a lot going on already with the simplicity of just having two doors would help clean up the exterior look.

Not a bad amount of power for the Q30 I wonder how the hybrid motor feel with this chassis.

The extra two doors do make the exterior look a bit busy. I wonder when a production model is going to actually make that really big windshield that turns into the roof of the car. I think that looks cool, but is that too futuristic for mainstream production still?

They can always make a coupe and a sedan though. Then people can have the option.

Figured I'd update this thread with some new info since it has so many page views. People seem to be viewing the wrong threads for accurate info

Thanks for posting these links, tons of info to be found their.

adding to the wealth of info, I heard Infiniti wants to expand on it's IPL line on a mass scale that will include some uncommon cars, one being the Q30 and future QX30.

Q30 IPL will be one unique car.

I wouldn't say they butched the IPL G37. It's not a popular car because its expensive.

Not like the IPL Q30 wont be expensive.

G37 IPL wasn't butchered, it was just a mild performance upgrade, at the time Infiniti wasn't even set up to offer any real performance packages like BMW, Mercedes, Audi, etc. Next gen models should change that.

The IPL is meant to compete with the M3 or RS4. Which is what everyone wanted.

Its just a performance trim. Kind of a like F Sport of M sport package.

Not the IPL that we current know and see on the road. Eventually it will be up to the level of BMW's and Audi's performance line, but how long from now? no one knows...
