Cerritos Infiniti Confirms, First ’Steer-By-Wire’ Infiniti Q50 Brings Steering Into 21st Century
Cerritos Infiniti confirms, Drivers of Infiniti’s all-new mid-size premium car will be the first to benefit from electronic steer-by-wire technology, inspired by latest jet aircraft technology, when the Q50 hits the roads later in 2013.
Direct Adaptive Steering, standard on certain models in the Q50 range, will for the first time allow drivers behind the wheel to choose how that wheel feels in their hands.
The steer-by-wire technology is a key ingredient in making the Q50 one of the most dynamic and exciting sports saloons on the market – extensively tested by Sebastian Vettel. Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s triple Formula One World Drivers’ Champion – who is also Infiniti’s Director of Performance – helped fine-tune the Q50’s performance and handling at Infiniti’s Tochigi test track in Japan.
Light and smooth for maneuvering, firmer and more agile for sporty driving and challenging roads, Direct Adaptive Steering makes all options available via simple touch-screen controls. Uniquely in the class, both steering weight and response can be tailored, with all settings stored for each driver in the Q50’s sophisticated memory.
Steering is adjusted on a touch screen as part of the Infiniti Drive Mode Selector. Depending on the model, there are up to four pre-set modes plus a personal setting that allows the driver to mix and match effort and response to suit individual driving style and type of road.
Direct Adaptive Steering and Active Lane Control will be standard on the Infiniti Q50 3.5 Hybrid and optional on the Q50 2.2d. Infiniti Q50 models without Direct Adaptive Steering are equipped with electro-hydraulic steering that offers drivers the ability to customize steering weight.
Infiniti offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles that inspire at every turn, including the G Coupe, Sedan and Convertible, Infiniti M sedan, EX and FX crossovers, the QX full-size luxury SUV, and the all-new JX 7-passenger luxury crossover.
