The Infiniti QX30 is getting a double debut in both LA and in Guangzhou, China.

Infiniti has been doing the fan dance in recent months, dropping one tantalizing hint after another about its new compact crossover. Now, it’s finally gone full Monte and revealed the production version of the new QX30.

The new crossover, a more rugged version of the Q30 line launched earlier this year, positions Infiniti in the heart of one of the world’s fastest-growing market segments – something underscored by the decision to simultaneously reveal the new Infiniti QX30 at the L.A. Auto Show and the Guangzhou motor show in China.

Cross Over!

“With our recent sales successes and record growth, the current product offensive will further strengthen Infiniti’s global market position,” said Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti. “The active crossover, QX30, will broaden our offer to new customers around the world.”

Infiniti muscles up its stock G37 Convertible.

With the launch of its new IPL G Convertible, Infiniti is adding some real muscle to its new performance sub-brand.

At 343 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, the 2013 Infiniti IPL G Convertible gets a noticeable bump up from the more conventional Infiniti G37 cabrio, a well-received improvement from the base car which had plenty of show but needed more go.

First introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and then updated, in concept form, at the recent Pebble Beach Concours, the IPL G shares its 3.7-liter engine with the standard-issue G37 Convertible, but it undergoes some exhaust tuning and engine management changes that add an extra 18 horsepower and 16 lb-ft of torque.


Infiniti EV To Launch as 2015 Model

So far, Infiniti is only giving a hint of what's to come when it launches its first battery-electric vehicle during the 2015 model-year.

Japanese luxury maker Infiniti will charge into the market with its first battery-electric vehicle sometime in 2014, revealed the maker’s senior American executive.

To be sold as a 2015 model, the as yet-unnamed battery car will be based on the Nissan Leaf but will deliver both better performance and longer range, Executive Vice President Andy Palmer told during a conversation at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.

Plug In!

The Infiniti electric vehicle will adopt a sedan, rather than hatchback body style, which became “the key challenge” in developing the new model, said Palmer, but he stressed that the production version “is not going to make any excuses,” and will deliver a much more refined appearance and feel when compared to the mainstream Leaf.
