Infiniti EV delayed to add better tech, Nissan exec says

Infiniti previewed its future EV when it showed the LE concept sedan at last year’s New York auto show. The car’s 2015 launch date has been pushed back, but a top executive says the car is “not significantly” delayed.
LONDON – The head of Nissan global planning says Infiniti’s electric car has been delayed because the premium automaker wants to incorporate more advanced charging and battery technology into the vehicle.

Andy Palmer denied speculation the delay indicated that Infiniti and parent Nissan were losing interest in electric cars. “Our heart is still in zero emissions,” he told Automotive News Europe in a recent interview.

Infiniti previewed its future EV when it showed the LE concept sedan at last year’s New York auto show. The car had been scheduled for launch in 2015. Palmer declined to put a new date on that launch, but said it was “not significantly” delayed.

“It’s still within our mid-term plan,” he said, without elaborating.

“There are some interesting advances in electric technology we hadn’t anticipated when we showed the LE, which, by delaying a little bit, we can incorporate into the car,” he said.
