These are the latest photos of the upcoming all-electric sedan/saloon Infiniti Qs Inspiration that will officially debut at the 2019 Auto Shanghai show in China.

Here it is, the vehicle Infiniti describes as "a sports sedan concept for the electrified era", the all-electric Infiniti Qs Inspiration.

Its flexible platform was developed to work with the electrified powertrains Infiniti has coming down the pipe.

The electric sedan features a relatively high waistline and a raised driving position to go with it, but (mercifully) has no crossover pretensions at the same time. The concept previews a production model, and perhaps the design language and lingo we'll see spreading through the range.

Christian Meunier, Chairman of INFINITI, comments: "For 30 years INFINITI has built a reputation for introducing new technology that delights and gives confidence to drivers".

However, Infiniti is saying the powertrain will be mounted low for improved handling, and the Qs Inspiration will sport an electric all-wheel drivetrain.

Giving Tesla a run for its money, Nissan Motor premium brand Infiniti is planning to launch a sporty e-sedan in the next three years targeting the luxury segment.

Add in Logan Couture, Timo Meier, Joe Pavelski, Evander Kane, Joe Thornton and Erik Karlsson and this team has some serious depth. Sergei Bobrovsky carried this team on his back in March, but he's not going to be able to carry them to the next round.

Brand officials have said that from 2021 every Infiniti model launched will be either an all-electric auto or so-called "e-Power" hybrids, underlining Nissan's previously announced plan to make Infiniti primarily an electrified offering.

Infiniti is on the back foot for electrified powertrains today.

The interior would be significantly different from current models, noted the design head, Karim Habib.

Competition in China's rapidly emerging EV market is heating up amid an onslaught of models from startups such as Nio and WM Motor, as well as those from established automakers.

"It will have a flat floor, and if you are a passenger you can cross your legs or stretch out your legs", Habib informed Reuters.

The vehicle will officially be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show 2019 on April 16th.
