Infiniti Emerg-E

Infiniti, the luxury division of Nissan Motor Co., wants the sporty Infiniti Emerg-E to help the brand establish its bona fides as a high-end luxury and performance brand.

The company said at the 2012 Geneva auto show that it estimates the two-seat concept car generates 402 horsepower and can go from zero to 60 mph in four seconds, which would put it among the fastest cars in the world.

Yet, it's a plug-in hybrid car that can go an estimated 30 miles on battery power alone. Using a range-extending three-cylinder gasoline engine to keep the battery charged, the total range on a full charge and a full tank of gas is about 300 miles, the company said.
