Infiniti’s first running prototype of the range-extender sports car, also known as the Infiniti Emerg-E Concept has shown its face parked at the grounds of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2012. Our local reporter spotted the car and snapped some photos of it.

The Emerg-E Concept is a mid-ship electric motors powered sports car concept. It projects Infiniti’s electric vehicle technology deep into the future with a range-extender powertrain. Combining performance with the scope to drive in urban conditions for up to 30 miles with zero emissions, it emits no more than 55g/km of CO2 over a 300 mile combined range.

It has a light, ultra-compact, Lotus-engineered three-cylinder 1.2 liter 35kW engine. It operates between crank speeds of 1,500-4,000rpm, producing peak power at only 3,500rpm. Its range-extender driveline is the first for Infiniti.
