Mr. Carlos Ghosn, President and CEO, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., announced at the 41stTokyo Motor Show that Infiniti plans to introduce an electric vehicle – one that will be true to the Infiniti brand’s promise of “Inspired Performance.”

Mr. Ghosn stated that a concept is being developed for a stylish, compact, high performance four-seat luxury Infiniti with zero emissions.

With the addition of a high-performance V6 diesel to Infiniti’s Western Europe line in 2010, and the Infiniti M Hybrid, which will be available in the U.S. in the spring of 2011, Infiniti will soon offer an almost unrivalled choice of powertrains compared with other luxury brands.

There has been some speculation on the web that this new Nissan EV may be based off the Land Glider concept, a 4-wheeled tilt vehicle.
