Infiniti unveils teaser image of QX30 crossover concept

Article by Christian A., on February 11, 2015

Infiniti has shown a teaser of its new QX30 compact crossover, with plans to unveil a concept of the vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3. Nissan’s luxury unit unveiled an image of the QX30 Concept, which production version will compete against the likes of the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X3.

Interestingly, the QX30 is based on the upcoming Q30 hatchback that will hit the showrooms in Europe in November this year. Both vehicles are underpinned by Daimler’s MFA compact car platform that also underpins the Mercedes A class and B class.

In a statement, Infiniti said the QX30 Concept – which combines the sleek lines of a coupe and the rugged looks and seating position of a crossover – indicates an urban explorer that is at home both in the city and on the open road.

Infiniti will start selling the Q30 hatchback in Europe in November 2015 and the QX30 crossover around six months later. Infiniti will build the Q30 and the QX30 at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the United Kingdom.

The brand logged sales of 3,888 cars in Europe in 2014, from 2,171 units in 2013, according to JATO Dynamics market researchers. Leading the charge was the Q50, which sales grew from just 257 in 2013 to 2,426 last year.
