Surely you have imagined, a Formula 1 hybrid power source at the tips of your toes can be pushed on the highway at any time. Infiniti also provides good news, in the near future, more precisely in 2021, the car has entered the portfolio of electric cars that will be sold at dealers to be owned.

This prototype named Infiniti Project Black S is based on the Q60 S sport coupe and its development is carried out together with the Renault Sport Formula One racing team. For this project, Infiniti embeded high-performance dual-hybrid technology, the 3.0L V6 twin turbo VR30 plus three motor generators

And these three motor generators: the MGU-K harvests energy under braking, and two MGU-H units capture heat from the exhaust. In addition there is an Energy Recovery System (ERS) that contributes to providing more optimal engine boost when needed.

As on the current hybrid generation of F1 cars, all this energy is then fed into a battery and redeployed as horsepower. These dual-hybrid prototype is claimed to provide the power equivalent of 563 hp. As for the conventional engine itself, it presents 400 hp. Its acceleration has been confirmed from 0-100 km/h in under 4 seconds.
"Infiniti has reached another milestone in the direction of electrification. Build strength and successful expertise in electric vehicles from the alliance of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And Infiniti shows the Project Black S, a high-performance prototype with F1 technology resulting from collaboration in the Alliance," said Roland Krueger, Chairman and Global President of Infiniti. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1 | GQ-MAGAZINE]
