GENEVA JEWEL TO BE ON SHOW AT INFINITI CENTRES in UK - 02 April 2013


Following its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month, the new Infiniti Q50 is to make an appearance at Infiniti Centre Glasgow from 9-11 April. This is a part of a UK tour, five months ahead of its official arrival date and the first of many Q50 opportunities.

The Infiniti Q50 is a premium sports saloon and represents a major step forwards for the Infiniti Centre network. Centre manager Jason Blane explains why: “The Q50 is the first Infiniti vehicle that has been produced with the European market in mind and as such allows us to appeal to a much wider audience than we have ever been able to before.”

With a 2.2-litre four cylinder diesel engine that emits under 115g/km CO2 it has been designed around the needs of both private and business customers. It can provide fuel economy in excess of 65mpg while still maintaining a good level of performance, with 170 PS of power and 400Nm of available torque. This super-efficient engine ensures low tax and running costs with a starting price of just £27,350.

The other technologically-advanced engine available is a sophisticated petrol V6 hybrid. It is the more performance biased of the two engines with acceleration from 0-62mph to be under 5.5 seconds but with CO2 below 145g/km and fuel economy of around 45mpg it will still attract low taxation. This engine is also available with a four wheel drive option.

However, the Q50 is not just about the engines, it has everything expected from a premium product, a fresh and modern look with a top class Japanese-influenced interior plus leading-edge technology taking the driving experience to a new level.

Other Details about Infiniti

The Q50 is the first model to feature Infiniti’s new naming strategy that will see all models bear either a Q or (for the crossovers) QX badge. The change recalls iconic Q models of Infiniti’s past and offers a clear and logical naming platform into which all existing and future Infiniti models will fit, with the double digit number signifying the area of the market where the car competes.

Infiniti, the premium automotive brand, reflects its brand promise "Inspired Performance" with a model line-up of saloons, coupés, SUVs and crossovers featuring exhilarating performance, emotive design and cutting edge technology. Infiniti continues to launch across the globe through a dedicated network of Infiniti Centres that share a commitment to exceptional hospitality throughout the entire period of ownership.

Infiniti was launched in 1989 in the United States. Infiniti’s global footprint expanded into Canada in 1990, Taiwan in 1997, the Middle East in 2004, Korea in 2005 and Russia in 2006. Global expansion continued in 2007 with Infiniti Centres opening in the Ukraine and in one of the world’s fastest growing luxury automotive markets, China. In 2008 Infiniti launched in Western and Central Europe which has added 20 additional markets.
