New Infiniti small car concept coming to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on November 16, 2010

Sources revealed that Infiniti’s small car project is on course to be previewed by a concept at the Geneva motor show next spring. According to Autocar, it is believed that Nissan’s luxury division is preparing a stylish three-door, which combines coupé cues with some hatchback practicality similar to Mercedes’ soon-to-be-discontinued CLC.

It is also probably going to be based on a front-drive platform sourced from the next-gen A-class as part of a link-up between Daimler and the Renault-Nissan alliance. The sources said that the Geneva show will witness an early sighting of the car, which Infiniti considers a vital model as it has set a goal to penetrate western Europe.

The production form, which will be “close” to the concept, is set to be unveiled next autumn, at either the Frankfurt or Tokyo motor show.

The source said that the concept will be “pretty special, and pretty different.” He described the concept to be small car but will be unexpected.

It’s understood that Infiniti designers working at the firm’s studio near Paddington in London are responsible for the styling.

On the other hand, the new diesel-powered Infiniti M30d will account for about 55% of the model’s sales across western Europe. However, the company admits that this figure could go as high as 80% in some markets. Infiniti is expecting sales of 2,000 units in Europe next year.
