Fresh from the road-safety division of the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" department, a self-driving example of how our cars are certainly smarter than ever. Infiniti's Q50 has, like many luxury sedans of the moment, a host of driver assistance aids that can collectivity keep the car in lane, maintain pace with surrounding traffic, and generally mimic some of what Google and others are working on for autonomous vehicles. That encouraged one tester to switch on the tech and then jump out of the driver's seat.
Infiniti is involved with one of the most successful racing teams on the Formula 1 landscape. If you aren't familiar with F1 racing, it has some of the best drivers and fastest cars in the automotive world. Infiniti has announced that it will be unveiling a new concept car at the Detroit International Auto Show next month that is inspired by F1 racing.
One of the biggest car shows in the world is currently being held in Frankfurt, Germany. The car show is called the Frankfurt Motor Show and this week Infiniti unveiled a new concept car called the Q30 at the show.

As environmentally-friendly concepts go, Nissan's Infiniti EMERG-E is definitely more in the BMW i8 camp of performance first, rather than the meek eco-boxes that can give EVs a bad name, and we've been lucky enough to grab a test drive of one of the two working cars in existence while at Nissan 360. While most concepts look great but can often manage no more than a sluggish roll from delivery trailer to car show stand, the 402HP EMERG-E isn't short on either power or poise. Read on for some first impressions.
Infiniti is showing its vehicles at the 2013 New York Auto Show. One of the new vehicles that has been unveiled is called the Infiniti Q50 Sports Sedan. Infiniti says that this vehicle was developed with lots of help from three-time world champion Formula One racing driver Sebastian Vettel.
While recalls aren't an unfamiliar subject to automotive manufacturers, it's a tad more of an issue when a recall rolls out for hot-off-the-machines models, which is the case Nissan and its luxury division Infiniti. The manufacturer has recalled five of its 2013 models due to a safety issue, according to the NHTSA.
Luxury automaker Infiniti has unveiled a new hybrid version of its 2014 QX60 premium crossover SUV. The vehicle will make its official world debut at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. The vehicle is a gasoline electric hybrid and will hit dealerships in the United States this summer.
With the launch of the 2014 model year, Nissan will begin prefixing Infiniti model cars with "Q" and crossovers and SUVs with "QX." This change will make it easier to identify what type of vehicle the model number applies to, a system far easier than the current barrage of letters that pepper Infiniti's various models. This comes a few weeks after Nissan announced that the 2014 Infiniti G37 will be unveiled in Detroit.
I've wondered for a long time why it is manufacturers tend to make electric vehicles and hybrids so unattractive. Cars like the Nissan Leaf the Toyota Prius are boring and boxy looking. Thankfully, some companies are starting to come out with hybrids and EVs that are green and good-looking. One of the latest vehicles that falls into the green and attractive range is the Infiniti LE concept that surfaced this week at the New York Auto Show.
