BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, Lexus and now Infiniti. Don’t you just love modern day communism? Right… Nevertheless, China’s considered the land of opportunity for any car maker (or any “maker” for that matter) so it was only logical that Infiniti would rush into one of the world’s most prominent markets.
[FONT=Tahoma]Infiniti’s first authorized dealer, dubbed “Shanghai Yongda Infiniti” started its sales in China from July 1st. The first models available in the Chinese market are the G35 sedan and FX35/45 SUV. G35 Base is priced at RMB448,000 ($59.000 or €43.000), G35 Premium at RMB478,000 ($63.000 or €46.200), while FX35 Base is priced at RMB638,000 ($84.000 or €61.600) and FX35 Top at RBM678,000 ($89.200 or €65.500) and FX45 Top at RMB808,000 ($106.300 or €78.000).
During the grand opening of the Shanghai dealership, Nissan Motors Corporate Vice President, Yasuaki Hashimoto said, “The China business is crucial for Infiniti’s global expansion and the smooth implementation of Nissan Value-Up”
“Infiniti has been well received in the marketplace thanks to its vibrant design, exhilarating performance, modern luxury experience and premium quality, as well as its Total Ownership Experience customer care philosophy,” said Yasuaki Hashimoto. “Infiniti’s worldwide customers are innovative, ambitious and successful people.
