Infiniti has just released a new Q Inspiration image and with it we basically now see the electric sedan's exterior in its entirety.
The car to be shown in just a few days at the 2018 NAIAS will almost surely be pure electric, though Infiniti is trying to conceal that part of the reveal for now. The blocked-off front end is a giveaway. Couple that with a statement from Infiniti design lead Alfonsa Albaisa some four months backs and we can say with a high level of confidence that this is the new Infiniti electric sedan and it's production-bound (likely in a modified form) in 2019.
If the car shown in Detroit is not electric then fear not. An electric powertrain will be fitted to the production version of this car soon enough.

In the new press release, Infiniti states:
We'll show the world a glimpse of our new design direction next week in Detroit with the debut of a stunning, new sedan concept designed to accommodate future powertrain and autonomous technologies.
INFINITI will reveal the Q Inspiration on Jan. 15 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Representing the next step in INFINITI design, the exterior of Q Inspiration features clear and concise lines and eschews classical sedan forms with its elongated silhouette. It's the first manifestation of INFINITI's new form language for an era of advanced powertrains and presents a design vision for vehicles in this segment.
