Infiniti introduced its electric pickupNovember 27, 2019
In recent years, automakers are increasingly turning their attention to the pickup segment, which is popular not only in the United States, but also in other countries.
More recently, even such a premium brand as Mercedes-Benz has released its pickup truck, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. However, a little later, the automaker admitted that its sales are not going as well as we would like. And the other day Tesla introduced its electric pickup truck, which is aimed at a wider audience. More recently, Kia and Hyundai have confirmed that they are also working on pickups.
The concept car, dubbed Quick-x, turns the current Infiniti design language into a pickup truck that strives to be minimalist while still being stylish and functional. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the truck’s design is the fact that the windshield extends directly to the front of the vehicle, which means that there’s no need to talk about the traditional hood. This suggests that the prototype was designed to work solely on electricity.
This fact allowed the designer to move the cabin as far forward as possible, increasing the interior space and giving the car unique proportions. As for the cargo compartment, it is both large, stylish, and beautifully complemented by thin taillights. Other interesting car design details include sleek wheels to improve aerodynamics and the lack of traditional exterior mirrors.
However, the company itself has not even hinted at creating its own pickup. Moreover, this market is vast and has great potential.
