The Infiniti Project Black S Prototype follows in the tire tread prints of the 2017 Infiniti Project Black S design study, which showed off what could be if Infiniti launched a new high-performance line. Infiniti sees this latest concept car as a representative of the best technology electrification has to offer. While many EVs or hybrids are perceived as slow or boring to drive, the Infiniti Project Black S Prototype’s dual-hybrid powertrain generates about 563 horsepower and accelerates from 0-100 kilometers in under four seconds.
Roland Krueger, chairman and global president at Infiniti, stated that this latest prototype was the culmination of intense collaboration between the branches of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and its combined electric vehicle expertise. “Project Black S utilizes high power and smart energy management from advanced powertrains, a thrilling dynamic capability on road and track, and a performance-oriented aesthetic. A collaborative venture between INFINITI and the Renault Sport Formula One Team, the Project Black S prototype is a testbed for new ideas and technologies, demonstrating how our Alliance partnerships could make our ambitious visions a reality.”
