Infiniti Announces JX Luxury Crossover To Join Its Line Next Spring– North American Debut of IPL G Convertible Concept and Red Bull Racing Formula One Car Set for New York International Auto Show –
Infiniti has announced an all-new three-row luxury crossover designated the Infiniti JX that will go on sale at its retailers in spring 2012 as a 2013 model.
An exterior sketch of the Infiniti JX suggests a vehicle that pushes the boundaries of what a luxury crossover can be – wîth signature styling cues of the brand, such as dynamic and elegant line treatments inspired by nature. The brand styling theme continues wîth a 'crescent cut' greenhouse design influenced by the Infiniti Essence concept car. More details will be provided when the Infiniti JX concept is shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this August. The production version will make its global debut at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
'The all-new Infiniti JX crossover will allow us to continue to expand the Infiniti brand's presence in the Americas,' said Carlos Tavares, chairman, Nissan Americas. 'In 2010, Infiniti was one of the fastest-growing luxury brands in the Únited States, and this year we will expand our presence further to Mexico and Panama, followed by Chile in the first half of 2012.'
'There aren't a lot of choices for luxury families today. The all-new Infiniti JX is the 7-passenger antidote to the ho-hum luxury crossovers that are out there right now,' added Ben Poore, vice president of Infiniti Americas. 'The Infiniti JX will have a stunning interior, while offering exceptional seating flexibility, easy access to the roomy third row, plus the latest in-vehicle technology – including next-generation telematics. A fitting addition to our line, it will challenge the status quo in its class.'
In addition to the JX announcement, Infiniti said that the New York International Auto Show will be the regional debut of its IPL G Convertible Concept and Infiniti-sponsored Red Bull Racing Formula One car.
The IPL G Convertible Concept, which made its world debut at the Paris Auto Show last fall, features unique aerodynamic styling, the performance of an IPL-tuned V6, exhaust and system, 19-inch IPL aluminum wheels, three-piece retractable hardtop and a dramatic red leather-appointed interior set against a Malbec Black exterior. The IPL G Convertible Concept will be displayed near the limited production IPL G Coupe, which is available now at Infiniti retailers in the Únited States and Canada.
The competition-tested Red Bull Racing Formula One racer will also be on display, representing Infiniti's marketing and technical collaboration agreement wîth the current Formula One World Champions. As part of the partnership, Infiniti has branding presence on the racing car, drivers clothing and related team uniforms and equipment.
The 2011 New York International Auto Show runs April 22 through May 1 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.Source - Infiniti
