The Infinity Emerg-E hybrid car is challenging notions of how an environmentally conscious electric car performs -- and more so, what it looks like.
Although a great deal of hybrid cars are rolling out, some of which are making strides in terms of design aesthetic, the vehicles are not typically that sleek in appearance. Infinity's version, however, spares no expense in terms of luxury and the streamlined, high-tech vehicle exudes the confidence of a muscle car with the emission-crushing power of a hybrid.
The sleek, silver vehicle features two electric motors and a backup three-cylinder engine for when the lithium power runs out and one has to switch back to traditional fuel.
It offers about 30 miles of emissions-free driving, which is not overly impressive unless one pairs that with the vehicle's ability to gun it to 60 mph in four seconds.
