INFINITI customers can now use new Amazon Alexa skills to interact with their vehicles

NASHVILLE, Tenn. INFINITI owners in the U.S. can now use simple voice commands to conveniently control vehicle features such as unlocking, locking, remote-start and more. Leveraging the power of increasingly connected homes, INFINITI has tapped into already-available features within INFINITI InTouch™ Services and INFINITI Connection® to integrate the new Amazon Alexa Skills on many of its new and existing vehicles.

This new connected feature is a great convenience that allows owners who may be walking in the door with their hands full of groceries—or those who simply forgot—to ask Alexa to lock their car doors. It is also a nice feature for owners in colder climates who, this winter, will be able to warm up their vehicles without leaving the house.

Infiniti Bringing High Performance EV to Detroit Auto Show

Infiniti will bring a high-performance EV to the Detroit auto show. 

Infiniti’s chief of design, Alfonso Albaisa, confirmed the automaker’s plans to show a new EV in Detroit in a recent interview with Autocar. The mystery EV will be an all-new model and won’t be based on an existing vehicle, he said.

Infiniti Prototype 9 Blends Old and New With Stunning Results

Concept cars these days, especially electric ones, can be a bit dull and repetitive – but the new retro-inspired Infiniti Project 9 is anything but. 

The Project 9 pulls its inspiration from 1930s-era Grand Prix cars. You might even think it’s the real deal with its wire wheels, elongated hood, and hand-formed tail, but this prototype is all-new and even packs an electric powertrain beneath its aluminum bodywork.

Infiniti Tries To Replicate A Painting By Drifting A Q50 In JDM Spot

Eager to show off the sporty prowess of the Infiniti Q50, the automaker has released a somewhat-strange but undeniably creative commercial for the Japanese market.

The clip shows German racing driver Michael Krumm behind the wheel of a blue Q50 as he attempts to stay in the blue lines of a thin course painted in an empty parking lot. The only catch is that the course is a replica of an abstract painting created by a pig. Yes, you read that right.

Infiniti Prototype 9 Is A Wonderfully Beautiful Ev Grand Prix Car

Infiniti Prototype 9 is a wonderfully beautiful EV grand prix car

Few automobiles are as elegantly beautiful as the open-wheel grand prix cars of the 1940s, '50s and '60s. The simple, slender shapes of these cars bear no extravagant flourishes or adornments. The purposeful design is what gave these cars their beauty, and it's these classic machines that inspired the new Infiniti Prototype 9. Teased earlier this week, this concept blends old and new, with classic lines hiding a modern all-electric powertrain. The Prototype 9 will make its full debut next week at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Infiniti says the car was built around a simple idea: what would a 1940s Infiniti grand prix car look like? While the silver paint may be more German than Japanese, the design could easily be mistaken for an actual '40s grand prix car. Only the Infiniti-styled grille gives it away. Everything about it, from the thin bias-ply tires wrapped over center-locking wire wheels to the bulging screws around the driver's seat, is pitch perfect.

It’s not yet clear what it will consist of, but Infiniti says it will incorporate “advanced EV technology.”
