Infiniti EV put on hold

Plans for an Infiniti Electric car – based on the Nissan LEAF and previewed by the LE Concept – have been put on hold as Infiniti concentrate on volume cars.

Nissan’s luxury arm, Infiniti, is on a global push to try and make inroads in to the dominance of Lexus in the luxury Japanese car arena, and has ambitious plans to be selling 500,000 cars a year by 2017.
