Infiniti will soon begin fleshing out its range of all-new offerings, with five new Q and QX models scheduled to launch by 2018.
Speaking with Britain's Auto Express in Detroit this week, Infiniti boss Johann de Nysschen reportedly confirmed a number of other new models over the next four years.
A launch time is still to be confirmed, however, with the project currently delayed over design concerns - possibly in response to the dramatically styled new Lexus RC coupe.
“The Q60 coupé will be an evolution of the Q50 saloon,” de Neysschen told Auto Express. “The car’s been pushed back as we need to fix the design language. We need more cohesion in our design language across the range.”
“The Q50 has shown a signal of our design language, “ he said, “But we’ll develop that with a more prominent shoulder line and a strong wedge.”
The Q60 will be followed by a new high-performance luxury flagship - likely a production version of the new Q50 Eau Rouge concept.
A halo performance model also remains a priority for the company, suggesting a new take on the 2012 Emerg-E concept could be on the way.
de Nysschen also promised greater profitability for the Infiniti brand over the coming years, acknowledging the age of the current line-up and the impact that new models will have on sales volume globally.
In Australia, the Infiniti brand amassed just 304 sales for the year, with significant price cuts in September having little impact on monthly numbers (21 sold in September, 24 in December).
