The Goodwood Festival of Speed isn't the first place green car enthusiasts go to for their gas-saving entertainment. But hybrids and plug-in vehicle have been present here and there in recent years – we've seen the Honda CR-Z RR Concept, Renault Z.E. concept and Tesla Roadster – and EV fans will get another chance this year when a functional Infiniti Emerg-E attempts the famous hill climb.

According to Green Car Reports, Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber will drive the Emerg-E at Goodwood, so it's in good hands. The Emerg-E was unveiled just a few months ago at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, sporting a 400-horsepower range-extended powertrain. We doubt the car's 300-mile range will be tested, but perhaps we will get to see a piece of the car's impressive 0-60 miles per hour time of four seconds at Goodwood. The festival starts June 28 but you can see a video tease of the Emerg-E below right now.

      hmm, the more I think about it there is something odd about that drag coefficient. only the front grill and the hip air intake should really detract from it otherwise it looks quite aerodynamic. and the wheels look quite bad. but it should be a lot better than 0.34 if the value is real that's an interesting example of how close you can get and still get it all wrong on the shape. maybe that rib on the door is bad

      Beauty! Nice to see the RBR and Infiniti are letting Weber have a go behind the wheel of something other than his F1 car. W/ all the press the Vettle has been getting lately (I know, I know...defending world champion) you'd think RBR had only one driver.

      All well and good, now the question is whether / when it will go production!
