Infiniti celebrates 7% global sales increase in 2016

Has Infiniti finally come of age? The answer could be yes if the brand’s 2016 sales performance is the yardstick.

The sports/luxury brand owned by Nissan has reported global sales in the year of 230,000 vehicles.

That number represents a significant 7% increase in sales compared to 2015 and a sales record for Infiniti.

While sales records fell in The Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania, and China.

Infiniti admitting that much of the growth has stemmed from the popularity of the new Infiniti Q30/QX30 – an offering that only arrived in Australia in late 2016.

In Australia, Infiniti did even better than the global results in 2016.

VFACTS data shows the brand delivered 807 vehicles, 40.6% more than the 2015 total.

Raoul Picello, Infiniti Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa says things are looking good for the brand heading into 2017.

“With Q30 and QX30, Infiniti has further expanded its portfolio and entered the compact segment.

“These two vehicles have been strongly received by industry observers and customers alike, propelling our sales volume significantly.

“With the all-new Q60 sports coupe (pictured above) and the fuel efficient twin turbo 3.0 V6 launched last year and the revolutionary variable compression turbo engine on the horizon, we are confident to further build our position in the premium market.”
