Infiniti Planning Flagship Luxury Sedan, Coupe
Speaking to Car & Driver, Infiniti president Johan de Nysschen revealed the company’s plans for an “upscale, very emotional, high-performance luxury sedan”, adding that the new vehicle won’t be designed to rival Germany’s full-size sedans.
“Above Q70 you need a car that competes with 7-series, S-class, and Audi A8. That’s conventional thinking. There’s enough action going on in that segment. I don’t think the world needs another car like that. But I do think the world needs an upscale, very emotional, high-performance luxury sedan from Infiniti that might be a different concept,” he said.
While stressing the need of a “sexy sportscar” that might share the sedan’s platform and powertrain, the company representative denied such a vehicle would be based on the Emerg-E concept, claiming it would be too expensive.
