Infiniti, the luxury vehicle arm of Nissan, has released the first picture of a new concept car. It is expected to make its debut at the Paris motor show 2014 in October.
Alongside the mysterious front grille image, Infiniti says it plans to "share a vision, its soul, on a scale not yet seen before" with the new vehicle. The new car is part of Infiniti’s plan to grow its range by up to five new models and thoroughly overhaul its existing line-up in the international markets.
One of the key vehicles that Infiniti has been considering is a crossover hatchback that will be known as the Q30. Such a car is regarded as integral to Infiniti's goal of reaching annual sales of 500,000 units before the end of the decade. However, a concept version of the Q30 has already been seen at last year's Frankfurt motor show.
But that's not the only new model in Infiniti's plans; it is also considering a rival to the Porsche Panamera. Such a model has been mooted before as a range-topping car that could reach the international markets in either 2017 or 2018. Among the other options Infiniti has been considering for the future is a seven-seat SUV that's expected to arrive before 2020.
