Rolle, Switzerland – Infiniti has unveiled the Essence Concept at the Geneva Motor Show, a 592-horsepower gasoline/electric hybrid coupe.

The rear-wheel drive Essence Concept showcases many of the technologies and design cues that Infiniti will translate into production cars in the coming years, including its hybrid propulsion. The automaker said the concept car also steers its guiding principle of “Inspired Performance” into the luxury super-coupe market for the first time.

Features on the Essence include a parallel hybrid system with 3.7-litre V6 engine that can run on electricity alone; new safety technology, including back-up collision prevention; a minimalist and intensely driver-focused interior; “new luxury” with traditional Japanese craftsmanship; and special Louis Vuitton fitted luggage.
