Infiniti may finally be working on a comeback to go along with the minor updates to its brand identity, if a recent dealer convention serves as any indication. Automotive News reports that the luxury brand teased two future EVs, as well as details on the redesigned QX80 SUV, as a way to reassure impatient dealers that their showrooms will soon be replenished with new models.


Infiniti apparently plans to introduce no more than four new models by 2027, and they include the next-generation QX80, a new coupe crossover called the QX65, an electric sedan around the size of the late Q70, and an all-electric SUV similar to the QX50.


Next-Gen Infiniti QX80 Gets A Significant Price Bump


The next QX80 is said to be due in summer of 2024, carrying a much heftier price tag of over $100,000. Currently, the flagship SUV begins at just $72,700.


But there's a reason for the leap in price, as the QX80 will deliver a much more lavish experience inside. The new cabin will reportedly have a 24-inch display that houses two 12-inch screens within a single panel, and climate controls will be moved to the infotainment system. It's also been reported that the third row is much roomier than before. The QX80 will also have a "flagship worthy" feature that is capable of sensing the temperatures of passengers, which it will then use to adjust the vehicle's climate controls.



The QX80's exterior design will feature a large grille up front, along with "blocky proportions" that resemble a Range Rover. Camouflaged prototypes of the flagship SUV have already been spotted, and they show an evolutionary design with a chieseled profile similar to the current model, along with thin lighting elements inspired by the QX60.


The V8 engine will be replaced by a smaller twin-turbo V6, with output likely to reach 450 horsepower. For comparison, the powertrain found in the current QX80 produces 400 hp.


QX65 Coupe SUV Slated For 2025


Infiniti is also rumored to launch an all-new SUV called the QX65. The automaker already offers the smaller QX55 as a coupe version of the QX50, so this new model should be heavily based on the QX60 three-row when it arrives in 2025.


The QX65 will be gas-powered, though nothing else has been confirmed in terms of powertrains. However, we expect to find the same 3.5 liter V6 from the QX60 under the hood, making 295 horsepower. The two-row crossover will compete with the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE coupe at launch.



Two New EVs On The Way


Infiniti has already confirmed one of its upcoming EVs, but now there are more details. The first electric model from Infiniti will arrive in 2026, taking the form of a "fastback-style sedan" that serves as a "striking evolution" of the Q70 fullsize sedan, which was discontinued several years ago. Automotive News reports that it resembles Tesla's Model S, and the rear end appears to have full-width taillights similar to the Porsche Taycan.


The electric sedan will be followed by a battery-powered crossover in 2027, with styling that's reportedly similar to the current QX50 compact SUV. The model that was shown to dealers is said to be in an early stage of development, as the SUV's design has not been finalized.
