The new Infiniti Q50 sports saloon makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Marking the start of a new-generation of Infiniti Q models, the Q50 for Europe includes the first fruit of the co-operation agreement with alliance partner Daimler AG.
Making its first public appearance outside the USA, where it had its world debut in Detroit in January, the Infiniti Q50 heralds a new design direction for the Infiniti range.
The Infiniti Q50, an all-new saloon for the premium D segment, powered by a new 2.2-litre diesel engine. Infiniti’s first four-cylinder diesel unit boasts 170PS and 400Nm of torque, and emissions starting from below 115g/km of CO2.
Among the world and European debuts are cars powered by four and six-cylinder diesel engines, hybrid powertrains, pure electric drive systems – and a V8 with KERS energy recovery system in World Champion Sebastian Vettel’s Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One car.
“This is our most European line-up ever which reinforces our confidence in Europe,” said Johan de Nysschen, president, Infiniti Motor Company Ltd. “We promised new models with smaller, lower CO2 engines and now we are starting to deliver them.”
