Preview for electrified luxury sports sedan to be revealed in Shanghai later this month.

Infiniti has teased its Qs Inspiration concept ahead of a full reveal at the Shanghai motor show, which kicks off on April 16.

The company says this new "sports sedan concept" is based on a new scalable platform that has been "developed specifically to accommodate electrified powertrains".

Additionally, Infiniti says the Qs Inspiration actually previews an upcoming production model, so we can expect the concept to morph into the next-generation of one of its current products.

"Drawing on Infiniti's DNA, the Qs Inspiration confirms Infiniti's new form language for its future electrified vehicles, inspired by the art and modern architecture of Japan," the company says in its press release.

"Inside, the minimalist cabin combines striking artistry and craftsmanship, and it features two distinct zones – a clutter-free cockpit designed to engage the driver, and a relaxed passenger zone that make the most of the generous interior space."

Infiniti describes the Qs Inspiration as "another groundbreaking sedan", in the same vein as the tech-laden Q45 the company first revealed in 1989.

Christian Meunier, chairman of Infiniti, said: "Electrification creates a range of new possibilities for sedans, with new powertrains and vehicle architectures letting us imagine how this type of car could be reinvigorated and adapted to fit the changing needs and tastes of drivers."
