Infiniti has named its electric concept car headed for next month's Geneva Motor Show the EMERG-E. The company says that its showcar will be a coupe powered by a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with a range-extending electric motor. The powerplant will be mounted amidships for superior weight distribution, and the Japanese automaker promises the concept will offer impressive performance.

Infiniti has released very few details beyond saying the car's pure-electric range will be "respectable." The vehicle also promises zero-emission driving in most urban settings, so there's a good chance the concept will show off some advanced charging tech as well. The automaker is intent on making us wait until the vehicle's full unveil in Geneva before it drops any more clues, though a few more teaser images have surfaced to whet our appetite. Check them out in our gallery below.

      Hi Infiniti - Please build a beautiful over the top hybrid sport car like the Essence. Price it reasonably, and I will write you a check. Thank you

      C'mon...would you really spend $60,000.00 for a hybrid called the EMERG-E. You just know your neighbor who drives the GMC pickup is gonna call it an "Emergency", and laugh every time he does. I can get humiliated for a lot less than $60k, and without Infiniti's help doing it. This reminds me of the early Toyota Tacoma concept which was...briefly...called the KDNES-TN. (Say it out loud...you'll get the point.)

      Maybe they should hire Fischerspooner to do the music for the launch!

      I think these are concept pics of the next generation G Coupe with false engine specs. There's been next to nothing said about the next generation G, so hopefully this is a start.

      "...powered by a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with a range-extending electric motor." Hmm. Kindly correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the small gasoline engine that extends the range of an electric motor car by keeping the battery charged via a generator? And not the other way around? Am I missing something here? Since the Fisker Karma and Porsche 916 race car appeared I've been fascinated by the idea of good-looking high-performance hybrids. The more the merrier. Hybrids don't have to look like a washer/dryer combo any more.

      Am I the only one that finds the 7th picture to be the odd-one-out from the bunch, in that the design elements do not gel with the silhouette suggested by the rest of the pictures, particularly around the rear. Looks like the last two pictures were mixed in from a different design. The first 6 look to carry on the lines of their Essence concept, while the last two look more similar to the current day Altima. Huge difference for me.

      "The company says that its showcar will be a coupe powered by a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with a range-extending electric motor." So, it's like a gasoline engine but the fuel pump is electric?

      If I really want a luxury car with zero emission, I will go buy a Tesla Model S
