Infiniti is aiming to add several new products and revamp its volume-leading G lineup of vehicles over the next few years. The first car set to be unveiled is a new compact front-drive model, likely based on either the new Mercedes A-Class or B-Class architecture, and likely sharing the same engines with its German counterpart. The new model is rumored to bow as early as the Geneva Auto Show this March.
Following that reveal will be an all new version of the G Sedan. Infiniti’s most successful model by far, it’s also one of the main rivals for the BMW 3 Series and if the past is any hint, Infiniti isn’t likely to shy away from horsepower, handling and style. In fact, according to one report the car is touted to get a “dramatic” strip of LED lights across the front. Suggestions for a debut include the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show, or the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, over a year away from now.
During this period Infiniti will also look to roll out its first electric vehicle, based on the Nissan Leaf.
