Infiniti will leave the Australian market very soon

September 13, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Over the past half year, only 351 copies were sold in the country, which ensured the company 35th place among the best-selling in this market. Unsatisfied with sales, the Japanese brand will leave the Australian market and focus on Chinese and North American.

Japanese automaker Infiniti, which produces premium cars, plans to leave the Australian market next year. This decision was made due to the fact that the company was not able to achieve a large number of sales. It is worth noting that in the spring of 2019, Infiniti already announced the termination of sales in the market, but in the European one.

 The Japanese company came to Australia 7 years ago (in 2012), however, over the entire period in the country, it sold only 4 thousand copies. According to the statistics of brand car sales in 2019, only 351 cars were sold in Australia for half a year (from January to July), which is why Infiniti took 35th place in the ranking of auto companies by the number of sales in the country.

 The manufacturer plans to focus on the North American and Chinese markets, in which it will promote its own electric cars.

Recall, on the Internet, there was information that the former chief designer of Infiniti Karim Habib will move to KIA. This person has been responsible for the design of new cars under the Infiniti brand since 2017. Karim, 49, got the same position in KIA as in the former company.
