Infiniti is mulling building a compact crossover slotted below the QX50. According to Andy Palmer, Nissan Motor Corp. executive vice president who is also in charge of Infiniti, remarked that the premium brand could use a model at the botoom of its SUV range that might be launched first in China and then to other markets.
He remarked to Automotive News at the Beijing auto show that there is most definitely a room for a QX30 and even below that.
Palmer added that the new compact crossover is likely to debut in China since it would be hard for Infiniti to start offering the vehicle in other markets like the United States or Europe.
Palmer called press reports saying that Nissan is planning a Juke-based Infiniti compact crossover for China a speculation. He, however, said that Nissan’s Juke subcompact crossover could provide an ideal platform to underpin an Infiniti offering.
