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.
