This monolithic SUV concept is the Infiniti QX80 Monograph, making its debut at the 2017 NY motor show. Infiniti has teased the new QX80 Monograph, a luxury SUV concept that might go on to become a challenger for the mantle of the ultimate SUV.
As hinted at in the picture, the new concept combines luxury with a commanding presence, and demonstrates the high levels of space and utility for which the QX cars are renowned.
The forthcoming production version of the QX80 Monograph, which means a detailed study into a single area of expertise, will be aimed primarily at markets such as the United States and China. This unique and bold design features the brand's signature double-arch grille and some clean geometric shapes that makes for an elegant and aggressive look.
Numerous styling details take Infiniti's current design language and simply scale it up a little. One more fun insight Albaisa offered is that the "crescent cut" of the D-pillar that defines so many Infinitis was inspired by the waxing and waning moon phases.
The QX80 Monograph features a frosted-effect paint finish, following positive feedback from recent INFINITI concepts completed with a similar effect.
Infiniti intends to use the Monograph approach in future design work, explaining that the word signifies a specific focus rather than a presentation of an entire vehicle. "This is an important initiative for Infiniti, as the QX80 is popular with buyers in a number of markets - particularly in North America and the Middle East".
Infiniti's plans for the interior of its full-sized SUV will have to wait a little longer. Why, then, pay $64,845 for a base Infiniti QX80 when you can purchase a very almost equally opulent top-of-the-line Nissan Armada Platinum for $6160 less? Its range of premium automobiles is now built in manufacturing facilities in Japan, the United States, United Kingdom and China. The brand has been widely acclaimed for its daring design and innovative driver-assistance technologies.
