I don't think it is a far-fetched idea that the V6 could become an upgrade option to the VC-T.Probably see a V8 in the new QX55 before a V6. They are going to stick with the 4 and offer electrification soon after that.
Recent excerpt from a major INFINITI dealer: Infiniti dealers face many challenges to lift sales
Infiniti has announced plans to electrify its fleet in the next few years. Is the U.S. market ready for these vehicles, or are automakers pushing these vehicles mostly to meet emissions targets in China and Europe?
"It's a complex situation, but electrification is definitely coming. However, I'm not sure when the typical luxury-car buyer will be ready to make the change. Is that five, 10, or 15 years away? We don't know. Without question, some of the new vehicles which are being proposed are very exciting.
Our former CEO (Christian Meunier) made some very bold statements about electrification, which I think were made due to his passion and desire to move the company forward. He had noble goals which I think will take longer to achieve, perhaps 10 or 20 years.
We don't see the combustion engine going away over the next 10 years, but as we add new products and broaden our portfolios, we know that electrification will be a part of the company."
