Infiniti Q30 Concept is first of 5 new vehicles for global markets

The Infiniti Q30 Concept shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the first of five new vehicles that the luxury carmaker plans to launch globally by end of the decade, Infiniti President Johan de Nysschen told Automotive News in an interview. Nissan currently has six existing offerings; the addition of “at least” five new ones will bring the lineup’s total to 11 by 2020.

De Nysschen remarked that Infiniti will be covering -- by its definition – around 90 percent of the segments they want by then. He added that Infiniti will also have its U.S.-oriented lineup revamped.

According to de Nysschen, the luxury brand needs diesels, a small luxury vehicle similar to the Q30 and a high-end halo car. He also disclosed the possibility of offering a "highly versatile platform" that would underpin a Q70 successor, a "high-powered, high-performance luxury car," and that unit’s shorter wheelbase coupe version, which could become Infiniti's halo car.

Infiniti has unveiled a concept version of its new Q30 crossover hatchback at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Q30 features a slightly raised ride height, sweeping roofline and self-assured looks – all designed to attract younger buyers expected to account for 80 percent of global luxury car-buyers by 2020. Infiniti plans to focus the Q30’s global production at its Sunderland site in the United Kingdom with an annual output of 50,000 units from 2015.

The luxury carmaker also plans to sell the Q30 in North America and China. Once built, the Q30 will become Infiniti’s second-biggest seller behind the new Q50, which is being produced at an annual output of 65,000 units. Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti president, remarked that the shape of the Infiniti Q30 concept “deliberately challenges categorization,” noting that it is neither a coupe nor a hatch nor a crossover so that it would entice younger buyers who “desire to disrupt convention."

The Q30 concept is described as 95 percent faithful to the 2015 production version, both on exterior and interior styling. Leading the styling team for the Q30 is none other than Infiniti’s head of design Alfonso Albaisa. He describes the Q30 as having “contours sculpted with fluidity” and its side profile as having “artistry and ambition.” The Q30 boasts of a rising beltline as well as sheet metal decorated with sharp-edged styling features.

As you can see, the Q30 Concept is not a coupe or a hatch or a crossover, but a fusion of the three body styles. Infiniti says that merging the dynamic design and sportiness of a coupe, the roominess of a hatch and the higher stance offered by a crossover will resonate with these customers.

“The Infiniti design team, led by Executive Design Director Alfonso Albaisa, has explored bolder, sensual sculpting and enhanced muscularity with the Q30 Concept as the brand’s design language continues to evolve.” Said the press release.
