The Infiniti QX30 Concept premiered at Geneva Motor Show 2015 – a stylish yet rugged profile for the crossover sports utility market.
The QX30 Concept previews a family of vehicles with both petrol and diesel. The production version goes on line next year. Infiniti first declared its plans for this sector with the Q30 Concept shown in Frankfurt in 2013. Made specifically to target China and Euope, it is set to follow United States in the endeavor as well.
An all-wheel drive of a crossover, the QX30 concept boasts sleek coupe lines merged with the command driving position.
Roland Krueger, Infiniti President and CEO, said: “The vehicle embodies our conviction to give customers the freedom to go wherever they want, whenever they want – in a style that turns heads and makes a statement, in a way that expresses their individualized character.”
The Infiniti QX30 Concept’s 21-inch wheels show-off the crossover’s multi-purpose, use-anywhere declaration – the five-spoke design is a unique mix of three-dimensional milled aluminium which interlock, all rounded off with larger profile tyres.
The inside design features four seats streamlined for a suspended look, the U-shaped seat frame partially wrapped with premium Connolly saddle leather with blue stitching.
“The QX30 Concept looks as capable as it is meant to be,” said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. “The artistic touches we put in lift the crossover to another level from being just another utility vehicle.”
Following Q30’s production in UK this year, a sports coupe based on the Q60 Concept is planned to go into production, together with the QX30 Concept next year. Currently built in Japan, the United States and China, Infiniti’s premium range is set to be produced in the UK plant, followed closely by production in Mexico by 2017.
