Infiniti has released a couple of initial images for its Qs Inspiration concept ahead of its real-world debut at the Shanghai motor show.

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.

“Sedans have represented the backbone of Infiniti’s lineup since the brand’s inception in 1989, with enthusiast drivers drawn to their abundant power and low centre of gravity,” goes Infiniti’s press release. “The raised driving position offers a clearer view of the road ahead without a raised body to compromise dynamics.”

The exterior design follows the themes established by the QX Inspiration crossover we saw in Detroit, with skinny LED headlights, an incomplete hexagon of lit-up chrome acting as a vestigial grille frame, and smooth surfaces with minimal interruption. The bodyside is given a central, horizontal slash which sits slightly indented into the centreline of the doors. The sleek roof features GT-R style blacked-out A-pillars and the obligatory camera fins. There appears to be a moonroof, too.

Currently we only have a pair of front ¾ angle photos to look at, but we will be at the show to give you more.
