Infiniti Q30 is set for a Frankfurt Motor Show debut

June 21, 2015

Infiniti has announced that it’s first-ever compact car – the Infiniti Q30 – will be unveiled at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September. Along with the announcement, the company has also dropped an image of a camouflaged test mule of the compact car that promises to significantly grow the Hong Kong-based company in Europe and worldwide.

The premium compact will be the first-ever UK-built Infiniti. It will be built at parent company Nissan’s Sunderland plant. The hatchback will be based on the Mercedes-Benz MFA (Modular Front-wheel drive Architecture) platform that underpins its direct rival – the Mercedes A-Class, and also spawn a compact crossover later on, with the name – ‘QX30’. The crossover will be introduced soon after the hatchback’s production commences. The crossover, of course, will also be based on the same Mercedes-Benz platform, and be built alongside the hatchback in Sunderland.

Both the Q30 and QX30 will be exported to North American markets and China from the UK plant.
