Infiniti Q50 long wheelbase debuts in Shanghai

Infiniti has unveiled a long wheelbase version of Q50 sports saloon at the Shanghai Auto Show, which will be built from next year alongside the QX50 crossover at Xiangyang plant in Hubei Province, China.

“China is a key market in Infiniti’s growth strategy,” said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti. “The decision to offer two vehicles specifically designed for the Chinese market and produce them locally, is further evidence of our globalization strategy”.

Alongside the Q50 long wheelbase, Infiniti also showed the Q50 hybrid for the first time in Asia and the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car with new livery for 2013.

Infiniti that was associated for a long time with just the North American market is growing fast and is already represented in 47 countries worldwide. Global sales for Infinit cars rose by 12.1% per cent last year.
