Infiniti, along with students of the California-based design college ArtCenter and the college of creative developments in Michigan, will develop the “fundamentally new” crossover. It is reported by the press service of the Japanese brand.

The process of creating a design for a new car will last until May 2019. The development team will be headed by Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design for Nissan, and Karim Habib, chief designer of Infiniti, at Nissan. According to the results of the program, the experts will select one student from each college who will be offered to practice in the global design center in Japanese Kanagawa.

The latest conceptual crossover brand Infiniti has become a car called QX Inspiration, shown at the Detroit Auto Show. It is designed to show how electric sports cars of the brand can turn out to be. The novelty has received narrow LED headlamps, as well as an illuminated false radiator grille with the logo and brand name. Other notable features include external cameras that will replace traditional side mirrors, as well as massive wheel arches.

Earlier, Infiniti officially announced that it will release the first production electric car in 2021. The model, which is built on a completely new platform, will be primarily focused on the Chinese market.
