60kWh Infiniti LE coming in 2018

Back at the end of July, we heard via AutomotiveNews that Infiniti’s future plans included bringing the LE ‘luxury electric’ vehicle to market for the 2017-2018 model year. Details were vague, but Infiniti mentioned a ‘next-generation battery range’ that would go beyond the current 90-mile standard.

According to a recent Reuters article, an ‘all-electric Tesla rival is still planned’ from Nissan’s luxury Infiniti brand. It’s set to come in 2018, and will have batteries as big as 60 kWh.

The vehicle will use next-gen lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide batteries, and Nissan is targeting a price of $200 per kWh (compared to the current $300 per kWh cost).
