Infiniti Teases Paris Unveiling, Expanding To 13 Models: Report Photo:

Infiniti has released a single teaser shot of what could be a new concept for the Paris Motor Show.

We say “could be” because Infiniti is being extremely cagey with its information on this one, showing only part of the car’s grille featuring Infiniti’s current styling lines.

A short press release from the Japanese carmaker says “soon, Infiniti will share a vision, its soul, on a scale not seen before from the company”.

The key words there are clearly “scale not seen before”, suggesting a segment of the market not currently occupied by an Infiniti product.

Infiniti has hinted at a midsized electric sedan, along with new performance models and a flagship coupe throughout 2014, but these variants would likely stand beside similarly-sized models in the current line-up.

That leaves the rumoured QX30; which satisfies the ‘scale not seen before’ part of the clue and gives Infiniti a player in the fast-growing compact SUV segment.

Infiniti ends with “À bientôt”, meaning “see you soon” – in French. So what can we expect from Infiniti with this concept, likely to appear at the Paris Motor Show? Stay tuned…

 

Infiniti Expanding Range By 60 Percent Over Five Years: Report

Meanwhile Infiniti Vice President for North and South America, Michael Bartsch, has reportedly confirmed that the carmaker plans to vastly expand its current line-up within five years.

Speaking with Autoblog, Mr Bartsch reportedly said the range would expand by 60 percent, to include eight sedans / coupe along with five crossovers / SUVs.

While no specific models were mentioned, an EV is believed to be among the new offerings along with a QX30 compact SUV (mentioned above).

Infiniti currently has eight models on the US market, but only four in Australia. The local range currently includes the Q50, Q60, Q70 and QX70.

Mr Bartsch reportedly said Infiniti was "not trying to take the Germans out", but was looking instead to offer a unique range of luxury and performance models.
