Previewed by the Etherea concept that was introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Infiniti Q30 was designed by Alfonso Albaisa and will be the first vehicle developed with the help of Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel from the very beginning. Other details have yet to be revealed, but Infiniti has published a sketch of the concept car.

"This Infiniti Q30 Concept is a prelude to the product portfolio expansion which underpins our aggressive global growth strategy," said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd. "In our quest to appeal to the modern, young-minded premium customer, the Infiniti Q30 Concept has a distinctive style and reaches new levels of product quality."

"Q30 Concept is slender, sleek and seductive," said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. "When you see speedy big cats, like cheetahs, they have a slenderness and a lightweight stride. It's almost like they're floating. That's the muscularity we were aiming for with Q30 Concept."
