Infiniti to offer Executive version of Q50 for business users

Article by Anita Panait, on October 24, 2013

A business version of the new Infiniti Q50 will also be available when the vehicle goes on sale starting next month. This version, dubbed as the ‘Executive’, will feature one of the most advanced satellite navigation systems and a highly competitive finance package. It is available as Executive and as Premium Executive.

The Executive model has a starting price of £29,870 and comes with a headline contract hire leasing rate of just £299.99 plus VAT per month (3+35 rentals, non-maintenance, 10,000 miles a year).  The Q50 Premium Executive, meanwhile, boasts of satellite navigation, heated and powered leather seats with memory and I-Key plus many other features.

It carries a tag of £33,470 or with contract hire for just £336.99 per month. Both versions are available in either manual or automatic transmission. The Q50 (manual transmission) boasts of a 114g/km carbon dioxide rating, leading to benefit-in-kind tax bills for drivers.

A 20 percent taxpayer in 2013/14 will only be charged with a benefit-in-kind tax bill of just £83.45 a month, while a 40 percent taxpayer faces a £166.90 tax bill.  The tax bill for a 20-percent taxpayer will only be £99.56 (£199.13) in 2015/16. Lease costs and BIK liability for the automatic version are similarly competitive.

The Infiniti Q50 Executive is powered by 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that provides 170PS (168bhp) of output and 400Nm of torque that allow it to accelerate from zero to 62mph in 8.5 seconds.

The engine returns 64.2mpg for the manual and 58.9mpg for the automatic. Infiniti UK Fleet Manager Hannah Bishop remarked that the Q50 Executive is “a very attractive and competitive proposition for the business user” as it offers “everything a driver expects in a car and a great deal more besides.”

When the new Infiniti Q50 goes on sale, from mid November, a version specifically designed for business users will be included within the range. The ‘Executive’, will be equipped to suit the higher mileage user with one of the most advanced satellite navigation systems and a highly competitive finance package on offer.

Available as Executive and Premium Executive, with either manual or automatic transmission, the pricing starts from £29,870 and comes with a headline contract hire leasing rate of just £299.99 plus VAT per month (3+35 rentals, non maintenance, 10,000 miles a year). Higher specified versions, such as the Q50 Premium Executive with satellite navigation, heated and powered leather seats with memory and I-Key plus many other features, costs from £33,470 or with contract hire just £336.99 per month.

The Q50’s 114g/km CO2 rating (manual transmission) also delivers highly competitive benefit-in-kind tax bills for drivers. A 20 per cent taxpayer in 2013/14 will face a benefit-in-kind tax bill of just £83.45 a month (40 per cent taxpayer: £166.90) for the manual. Even in year three (2015/16) this rises to only £99.56 (£199.13). Lease costs and BIK liability for the automatic version are similarly competitive (see table).

The Infiniti Q50 Executive’s 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine boasts 170PS (168bhp) and 400Nm of pulling power for spirited acceleration (0-62mph in 8.5 seconds) with exceptional fuel economy: 64.2mpg in the manual and 58.9mpg in the automatic (combined cycle figures).

Infiniti UK Fleet Manager Hannah Bishop said: “A car of this size, power and standard specification for under £300 a month (plus VAT) is a very attractive and competitive proposition for the business user. The new Executive versions offer everything a driver expects in a car and a great deal more besides, such as our InTouch technology with dual touch-screens for a ready-to-go digital mobile office.”

Executive versions are available to order now with deliveries expected in mid November.
