The Infiniti Essence is basically “a front-engined, two-seat, 600PS luxury coupe concept” that boasts a petrol/electric hybrid drivetrain.” It features a twin-turbocharged 3.7L V6 engine that produces 434bhp and a 158bhp 3D motor that draws power from a lithium-ion battery pack.

When the traffic clears, Essence responds with a highway performance that few cars could match. In “power assist” mode the full 600PS is unleashed with both petrol and electric power working together.
