| Infiniti, the luxury performance car brand from Japan, has announced its intention to dramatically increase its network coverage in line with a fast growing product portfolio, which will include smaller engines and additional models, and a strategy to quickly raise awareness through a new multi-media brand campaign and ongoing partnership with Red Bull Racing.
New centres have been recently opened in France, Spain and Luxembourg and others are in plan in the key European markets. In Italy too the company's goal is to increase the current network, targeting where Infiniti is not currently represented but which show high potential for the brand.
Infiniti announced recently its intention to reach a 10% share of the global luxury car market by 2016 and is already preparing the ground for growth. The company recently launched its first hybrid petrol electric vehicle and, through a partnership with Mercedes-Benz, is now engineering four cylinder diesel and petrol engines to be launched in Italy next year. Beyond this, there are upgrades to existing models and entry into a new area of the market for Infiniti: the compact luxury segment with an innovative design influenced by the recent ETHEREA concept car and based on the latest small car platform from the Daimler group. By the end of 2016, Infiniti aims to be present in nearly all major segments of the luxury car market and with powertrains tuned for European needs.
Infiniti is also working towards a more environmentally friendly future. The Infiniti M Hybrid is not only the world's fastest accelerating full-hybrid, it is also amazingly fuel efficient for a car of its size and performance. At the recent Geneva Motor Show, Infiniti showed an electrifying new take on the sports car with the Emerg-e concept car. And within two years, the brand will bring to market what could be the world's first compact luxury zero emissions sedan.
