The New York Auto Show for the media is starting to wind down, but that hasn't stopped Infiniti from unveiling their LE concept.

Designed to preview a production model that will be launched within two years, the concept has sleek styling which enables it to have a drag coefficient of 0.25.  To get this impressive figure, designers gave the model a unique grille, swoopy character lines and aerodynamic 19-inch wheels with low-rolling resistance tires.

While the exterior styling won't win everyone over, the cabin is undeniably luxurious and contemporary. Notable highlights include semi-aniline leather seats, "HAKU" silver trim and blue ambient lighting.

Motivation is provided by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor that produces 134 hp (100 kW / 136 PS) and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque. It enables the model to have "exceptional acceleration" and a range of approximately 100 miles (161 km). When the battery is depleted, it can be replenished by an integrated charging port, a rapid charger or a wireless charging system.
