Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz have officially announced plans for a new manufacturing plant in Mexico.
It appears that Daimler and Nissan have finalized their joint venture deal to produce vehicles in Mexico.
Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche has revealed that Mercedes-Benz will take the lead in developing and engineering any new vehicle shared with Infiniti.
Prior to teaming up with Nissan-Renault, Mercedes considered other partnerships in order to make a new small car. Possible suitors included Volkswagen, BMW and Fiat.
Originally making its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Infiniti Q30 concept has made its North American debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Based on a new platform being developed in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti is looking to bring a seven-seat crossover into its lineup.
Set to make its official debut in less than 48 hours time at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Infiniti has revealed more photos of its Q30 concept.
Nissan and Daimler will build small Infiniti and Mercedes vehicles at a new plant in Mexico, that will open later this year.
Infiniti will continue its product expansion by adding a new entry level Q30 model to its lineup, releasing a teaser sketch of the car ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
