This is a government agency that aims to advance the development of vehicular technology that reduces carbon emissions. The organization's membership is made up of various universities, research firms, suppliers and, you guessed it, Lotus
. Like the Evora 414E Hybrid concept, built back in 2010 with the agency's assistance, the Infiniti Emerg-E is powered by two electric motors that drive the rear wheels independently via a single-speed transmission. The range-extender comes in the form of a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, and 0-60mph has been quoted at a Porsche
911 rivaling 4.1 seconds.
