Infiniti Chief Delays Small Luxury EV, Indefinitely

This was to have been the year of the Infiniti LE, an upscale version of the Nissan LEAF with wireless charging. Instead, speaking at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week, Infiniti President Johan de Nysschen, told that the company is kicking the cool-looking car down the road, to somewhere near the end of the decade.

The Infiniti LE, a car show fixture, was conspicuous in its absence from the company’s stand in Detroit this year. In an interview shortly after introducing the performance-oriented Q50 Eau Rouge concept, de Nysschen said the LE is “delayed indefinitely.”
Low Priority

Infiniti, de Nysschen said, “is busy building a brand. We have to rank our priorities. And the LE ranks lower on our list of options, lower in our priorities.” He denied, as has been previously implied by Nissan executives, that delays in the LE program were due to issues with its planned wireless charging, or with efforts to give it greater range.
