INFINITI had the best February sales month in its history with 20,114 vehicles sold globally, a 21% increase versus the same month last year. This follows last month’s record January sales. The USA, Mexico, Western Europe, China and Australia all achieved their best February sales month as well.
Roland Krueger, President of INFINITI Motor Company said, “Following record sales in 2016 of more than 231,000 vehicles, it is gratifying to see that customers around the world continue to appreciate the design, performance and quality they expect from INFINITI.
Our momentum is of course led by new products, with the QX30 and Q60 now on sale in key global markets. In addition, we are pleased to announce our expansion into New Zealand this year. The momentum continues next week when we unveil the new Q50 in Geneva.
The Q50 is our best-selling vehicle globally and was the first production vehicle in the world to come with steer-by-wire, or Direct Adaptive Steering, a pre-requisite for autonomous drive functions.”
