Infiniti is teasing us, again. This week the Japanese-automaker released a few images, but no real details, of the Etherea Concept. Earlier this month Infiniti teased with a silhouette of a hatchback.
It looks like the Etherea combines elements of a coupe, sedan, hatchback and crossover in a forward-thinking design.
There were no under-the-hood details released with the images. Infiniti just included a brief statement, announcing that the Etherea will make its world debut on Tuesday, 1 March, at the 2011 Geneva auto show.
The Etherea is rumored to be an entry-level vehicle for Infinity, most likely competing with the Audi A3 and the BMW 1 Series for the world market.
The Etherea promises to be "highly compact," but uses the space more wisely due to "a new mechanical layout."
"Etherea is about a new type of luxury for younger buyers," said Toru Saito, corporate vice president and leader of the Global Infiniti Business Unit in a release. "It is not just a smaller version of a typically conservative and traditional luxury car."
