Infiniti Celebrates Record Sales

UK-built Q30 likely to see success story continue

High-performance car manufacturer, Infiniti, is celebrating record sales for 2014 having sold more vehicles in the UK than ever before.

This success will most certainly continue, with the UK-built Infiniti Q30 due for launch later this year.

Five Infiniti saloon, coupe and crossover models are currently sold in the UK, with powertrain options comprising petrol, diesel and hybrid power, and prices starting at £27,950.

The company believes the increase in sales reflects a growing awareness of the Infiniti brand among customers, while the brand also stands out thanks to its different approach to design, technologies and craftsmanship. 

2014 was the first full year of sales for the award-winning Infiniti Q50 range.

The entry level 2.2-litre SE boasts a very high standard specification, including 17-inch alloy wheels and run-flat tyres, plus LED in the rear light units.

Scratch-shield paint is used to ensure unsightly minor scratches simply disappear, whilst chrome-trimmed twin exhaust pipes and halogen daytime running lights enhance the car’s sporting presence. 

Co2 emissions are also attractive - at less than 115g/km - and the car runs at an impressive 64mpg.

The Infiniti Q50 has proved to be one of the ‘safest cars on the road’ and has a Five Star Euro NCAP rating.

This car boasts the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system which can warn the driver of the potential danger ahead and then automatically slow the vehicle down, or even bring it to a complete halt, if necessary.

Other news is that, later this year, Infiniti’s first European production facility, in Tyne & Wear in the north east of England, begins production of an all-new premium car based on the sleek and seductive Q30 Concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013.
