Infiniti Motor Company, headquartered in Hong Kong, has revealed its plans of unveiling its first-ever compact car – the Infiniti Q30 – at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September this year.
It was at the 2013 Frankfurt show when Infiniti revealed the concept version of the Q30 and now after two years the company is going to unveil the production version of this segment-spanning compact car.
Infiniti revealed in a press release that the car is in the final stages of preparing the launch. Dynamic testing and ultimate validation is currently taking place across the UK and throughout mainland Europe where development of the vehicle has been completed at the company’s Engineering Center in Cranfield, UK, since 2014.
The Q30 will go on sale in Europe towards the end of 2015 with other markets to follow subsequently.
The Infiniti brand was launched in 1989. Its range of premium automobiles is currently built in manufacturing facilities in Japan, the United States and China. Production in the UK will start in 2015, bringing with it significant expansion of the brand’s portfolio. Infiniti plans to also expand manufacturing into Mexico by 2017.
