Four new models signal INFINITI product renaissance

26 Oct 2023

INFINITI today announced plans to launch four new models as part of a comprehensive range refresh, signaling a product renaissance.

In pursuit of its goal to electrify the majority of its global range by 2030, INFINITI unveiled a sleek all-electric fastback sedan concept, the Vision Qe and teased an advanced all-electric SUV. INFINITI also confirmed its new generation QX80 full-size SUV flagship will arrive next year and announced a new QX65 crossover coupe is on the horizon.

All models embody the brand’s evolved design language, anchored around Japan-inspired Artistry in Motion. INFINITI’s specific blend of artistry delivers products that blend evocative, artful design with powerful, yet graceful movement.

“Today is a pivotal moment for INFINITI as we announce four stunning new models are on the way,” said Jose Roman, Global Head of INFINITI and senior vice president, Global Sales Nissan Motor Co. “These additions will reinvigorate INFINITI and pave the way to achieving our long-term plan: Ambition 2030.”

In concert with INFINITI’s recently updated visual identity, retail architecture and multisensory signature, the new products round out a comprehensive refresh for the brand that extends across all key touch points.

Since its birth in 1989, INFINITI has embraced artful and provocative design as a key differentiator. From the minimalist Q45 performance sedan to the pioneering FX crossover coupe and recently revealed QX Monograph concept, INFINITI has always dared to push boundaries, challenge conventions, and deliver products that stir emotions.

All models of the brand’s future range have been crafted under an evolved design language: Artistry in Motion. Customers of the future can expect clean yet sculptured exteriors where lighting and panels seamlessly intersect along with welcoming interiors - where technology and rich materials are curated and assembled with artistic precision.

Revealed at INFINITI’s New Dawn event in Tokyo, the INFINITI Vision Qe concept previews the design of INFINITI’s first all-electric model. The sleek fastback sedan pairs a low and wide profile, with full-width digital piano key lighting and striking machine-finished wheels.

INFINITI’s next generation QX80 SUV flagship is confirmed to arrive next year. The exterior, previewed by the QX Monograph concept unveiled at 2023 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August, is characterized by a confident, athletic stance paired with grand, yet graceful proportions.

The production QX80 will carry the same powerful profile and minimalist exterior infused with evocative details. Inside, the cabin will pair opulent materials with cutting-edge technology to deliver extraordinary comfort and convenience for all three rows.

In this bright new dawn, INFINITI’s goal is to inspire owners – offering a human-centric and holistic luxury experience that extends beyond the car alone. The four future products will reinvigorate its lineup, providing luxury buyers with convention-challenging alternatives within key segments.

An all-new QX65 nameplate will adorn a new mid-sized INFINITI crossover coupe. Channeling inspiration from the pioneering INFINITI FX, the new INFINITI QX65 promises buyers a stylish two-row alternative in the cluttered midsized crossover segment.

Auto China 2024 and beyond: Mercedes-Benz to showcase its focus on China with new products and localised developments

At and around Auto China 2024, Mercedes Benz underlines its commitment to delivering dedicated products and technologies to Chinese customers. As the largest single automotive market in the world, China plays an important role in the long-term strategy of Mercedes Benz. Running up to the show, the company will maintain its leadership position in this market, headlined by the world premiere of the all-new electric Mercedes Benz G Class.

China is home to the company’s largest production site and the most comprehensive R&D hub outside Germany, playing a significant role in Mercedes Benz’s global R&D network. In recent years, Mercedes Benz strengthened its R&D capabilities in China, particularly in electrification and digitalisation. In 2021, the company opened the new R&D Tech Centre China in Beijing, equipped with state-of-the-art testing labs, including E drive, battery, charging, NVH, and more. In 2022, Mercedes Benz established the new R&D Centre Shanghai, focusing on connectivity, automated driving, plus software and hardware development. This April, a new building will be added with advanced hardware and software facilities designed to accelerate local development in cutting-edge digital innovations. Besides the R&D Centre, the existing Design Centre will continue to promote the digital dimension in Mercedes Benz designs.

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Premium British vehicle manufacturer Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has announced the 25 commemorative names to be paired with the 25 T.50s Niki Lauda chassis. Each of the track-only T.50s supercars will celebrate Gordon Murray’s rich racing heritage with their names commemorating the dates of his first 24 Grand Prix wins at different circuits, and a special endurance race victory.

Already allocated to their owners, each of the T.50s chassis is themed chronologically, starting with Murray’s first race victory – 1974 South Africa at Kyalami – and continuing with each subsequent win at unique locations: 1974 USA at Watkins Glen; 1975 Brazil at Interlagos; 1975 Germany at Nürburgring; 1978 Sweden at Anderstorp; 1980 Italy at Imola; 1980 Netherlands at Zandvoort; 1981 Argentina at Buenos Aires; 1982 Monte Carlo at Monaco; 1982 Canada at Montreal; 1983 Brazil at Rio; 1983 Italy at Monza; 1983 UK at Brands Hatch; 1984 USA at Detroit; 1985 France at Paul Ricard; 1988 Mexico at Mexico City; 1988 UK at Silverstone; 1988 Belgium at Spa; 1988 Portugal at Estoril; 1998 Spain at Jerez; 1988 Japan at Suzuka; 1988 Germany at Hockenheim; 1988 Hungary at Hungaroring; 1988 Australia at Adelaide; 1995 France at La Sarthe.

The news comes ahead of the global dynamic debut of the T.50s Niki Lauda prototype on 13 April at the UK’s Goodwood Motor Circuit. The first public outing for the T.50s prototype will headline the 81st Goodwood Members Meet where more than 15,000 track spectators will enjoy the first outing of the race-spec car revving through to its 12,100 rpm redline. The T.33 mule ‘James’ will also make its dynamic debut at the event marking the progress made by the GMA R&D team and enabling the public to hear the GMA.2 V12 engine for the first time.

The Goodwood event will celebrate the career of famed racer Niki Lauda – the 1970s and 1980s F1 driver whose name appears on every T.50s. Raising the occasion’s significance further, GMA will explain the unique connection between the T.50s and the iconic Brabham BT46B ‘Fan Car’ that Niki Lauda drove to a commanding victory at the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix.

Conceived by Gordon Murray during his 17-year tenure as Chief Designer at the Brabham Formula One team, the BT46B rose to instant iconic status due to Murray’s innovative addition of a ground-effect fan system. Having dominated and won its inaugural race at Anderstorp, Sweden in the hands of Niki Lauda, the model was withdrawn by Brabham to pacify other teams for the good of the championship.

Gordon Murray, CBE – Executive Chairman, Gordon Murray Group: “The dynamic debuts of the GMA T.33 mule and GMA T.50s XP1 mark an important milestone in the development of both supercars. I’m also proud that we will participate in honouring a man who was a one-of-a-kind racer and a great friend by showcasing the T.50s Niki Lauda at Goodwood. Additionally, revealing the 25 historically significant motor racing names for our track-only T.50s is the perfect way to celebrate a favourite event for me and the whole GMA team.”

GMA’s Dario Franchitti will present attendees with an insightful overview of the story of the BT46B and its significance in the design and engineering of the T.50 supercar and its track-spec T.50s sibling. The GMA team will also be joined by His Grace the Duke of Richmond who will take a tour of the Murray display of heritage race cars and modern-day GMA supercars.
