Mono = One, Graph = Graph: Infiniti Debuts QX80 Monograph Concept

Mono = One, Graph = Graph: Infiniti Debuts QX80 Monograph Concept

"The QX80 Monograph is an exploration of how we plan to take a step forward in the large SUV segment", Francois Bancon, Infiniti's vice president for global product strategy, said in a statement. It illustrates how the design of INFINITI's large SUV could evolve in future.

The QX80 Monograph is over five meters long, nearly two meters tall (including roof rails), and more than two meters wide (door mirrors folded). No technical information regarding a platform or powertrains has been revealed.

For the QX80, the "monograph" is focused exclusively on its exterior appearance, Albaisa said. Infiniti's full-gainer into the design deep-end with its QX80 Monograph concept should be proof enough of that. Typical concept touches such as flush-mounted door handles and what appear to be side-mounted cameras in place of mirrors are unlikely to see the light of day. With the new concept, the company is aiming to improve its position in the full-size luxury SUV segment.

Taiwan is about to make eating dogs and cats illegal
Anyone caught in breach of the law could face up to two years in prison, as well as large fines and publication of their identity. The new law - an amendment to the existing Animal Protection Act - bans the "slaughter of dogs and cats for human consumption".

However, this isn't some outlandish concept where the designers have just been given free rein to see what they can dream up, as the Monograph QX80 heavily applies Infiniti's latest design language in a way that's both sculptured and artistic.

The D-pillar is reshaped to enhance the horizontality of the SUV's upper body and wheels are 2-tone, partially chromium black and partially brushed copper. The Monograph fixes things by moving the headlights higher, while an even taller and wider grille works with a busy but attractive lower fascia to give the concept a degree of presence the current SUV simply lacks.

INFINITI Motor Company Ltd.is headquartered in Hong Kong with representations in 50 markets around the world. Its range of premium automobiles is now built in manufacturing facilities in Japan, the United States, United Kingdom and China. From the 2016 season, INFINITI is a technical partner of the Renault Sport Formula One team, contributing its expertise in hybrid performance.
