Next-generation Infiniti FX crossover to have roomier cabin

Nissan’s luxury brand is redesigning its Infiniti FX crossover to provide a roomier cabin. Shiro Nakamura, global design chief for Nissan, remarked that Infiniti believes that giving the FX more cabin space while keeping its assertive styling will help boost sales of its next generation, which could be rolled out in 2015 or early 2016. Infiniti has renamed the 2014 models as QX70 as part of a new naming system across the premium carmaker.

Nakamura remarked that the FX has been the icon of Infiniti, noting that exterior and styling-wise, the crossover is very strong as an icon. He admitted that the sales of the Infiniti FX failed to live up to expectation, remarking that perhaps the carmaker has placed a “little too much emphasis on exterior styling” on the current FX. He remarked that while there is a balance, the FX poses several disadvantages compared to some rivals like the Porsche Cayenne.

He said that Infiniti’s challenge now is to maintain the FX’s striking look while making it slightly larger inside. While Infiniti is seeking to make its models roomier, it is also adding smaller vehicles and front-wheel-drive platforms. For instance, Infiniti will unveil at the 2013 Frankfurt auto show the Q30 fwd compact concept. The luxury carmaker has also indicated that it is planning for other small vehicles.

Infiniti to launch its first ever Global brand campaign focusing on new FX

Infiniti will introduce its first ever Global brand campaign which centers on the revamped FX with the assistance from the brand ambassador and Red Bull Racing's two-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel. The pioneering campaign is created to distinguish the Infiniti brand by utilizing the stylish FX with a new promotional line of 'Performance isn't black and white.. it's purple'.

This message focuses on human emotion as viewed through the eyes of Sebastian Vettel, revealing that performance is not just about statistics and numbers. Infiniti Marketing and Communication Director Jean-Pierre Diernaz for Europe, Africa and Middle East commented that the luxury performance automotive brand from Japan has a "strong point of view" regarding what performance is and how it should be delivered.

Having the "best" pilot in the world Sebastian Vettel to show this point of view is an indication of how "serious" they are in their ambitions to create the brand. TBWA\G1 in Paris created the creative platform. European Creative Director Alasdhair MacGregor Hastie stated that by portraying how emotion is "more important than cold science," they have provided Infiniti "its own performance positioning."

Infiniti FX50 S Sebastian Vettel Edition will cost more than €120,000 in Europe

Production will start in October for Sebastian Vettel’s special edition Infiniti FX50 S. Its price tag says that it costs more than £100,000, according to an Autocar report. Deliveries of the Vettel FX50 S will begin early next year. The company plans for this car to be priced slightly higher than 120,000 euros in mainland Europe, which is equivalent to a UK price of just higher than £100,000.

Only 50 units will arrive in Europe. The company will decide on the UK application as soon as the expressions of interest are received. To date, the company has received eight orders from European customers that have already confirmed. It’s nine if Vettel is included. He will get the first unit that rolls off the production line.

It will be mostly unchanged from the concept unveiled last year at the Frankfurt motor show. The only apparent change is that instead of being painted matt white, it will use pearlescent white paint. It will be powered by the same 414bhp 5.0-litre V8 that could bring the car to a top speed of 186mph.

Official: Infiniti confirms the FX Vettel Edition

The Infiniti FX Vettel Edition Concept, which was designed and developed for two-time Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel, is set for production, Infiniti has confirmed. The FX Sebastian Vettel variant was the highlight at the company's stand at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The presented engineering, aerodynamics and design upgrades were motivated by the Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador and Red Bull Racing champion.

Andy Palmer, Infiniti's executive vice president, commented that creating the FX Sebastian Vettel variant for Frankfurt "was fun, but it’s also a kind of pilot."

He added that the variant is about their equivalent of Mercedes-Benz's AMG or BMW's M Cars. He further stated that they wanted to test the organization and "see if it could cope with this type of special version." With Sebastian’s FX, they were able to do low volume specials, he continued, adding that the FX Sebastian Vettel variant is one of the first that will go to market.
