Infiniti's upcoming new Q50 sedan will be the first model in Nissan's luxury range to feature a Mercedes-Benz engine, sourced from European and US plants.

The news comes nearly three years after Mercedes parent Daimler and the Renault Nissan alliance announced a strategic technology sharing and development partnership in 2010.

The Q50, Infiniti's replacement for the current G sedan, was revealed last month in Detroit, debuting with Nissan's 245kW 3.7 litre petrol V6 and a 270kW 3.5 litre petrol-electric hybrid system.

Details of the new Mercedes-sourced engines have not been revealed, although it is known that smaller-capacity turbocharged petrol and diesel options are bound for the Q50 range.

The engines are likely to be related to existing powertrains in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class line-ups.

“The Infiniti Q50 is a world-class sports saloon with an engine line-up that will clearly demonstrate its intentions to be a major player within the European premium market," Infiniti's Bernard Loire said.

The carmaker is expected to reveal more information on the new engines in early March.
