A true luxury package with a stunningly elegant and welcoming interior, Etherea’s four-door coupé look goes hand in hand with five-door practicality – and, like any Infiniti, a sports car’s driving appeal.

The concept is powered by a supercharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine developing 245 PS, with power going to the front wheels via a CVT automatic transmission. Boosting power when more is needed – and providing silent, emissions-free drivingat low speeds – is anelectric motor. This potent yet highly efficient hybrid drivetrain is based around the innovative one electric motor/twin clutch system used in the Infiniti M35h and designed to make electric power work harder and last longer.
