  • Year-to-date Western European retail sales pass 7,000 mark, a nearly threefold increase year on year

Rolle, Switzerland – Infiniti continued its unprecedented sales momentum when it sold 1,071 vehicles in Western Europe in April, almost tripling sales with respect to April 2015. More than half of the sales were generated by the company’s new premium active compact, Q30. Year to date, 7,078 vehicles were sold in Europe, up nearly 200% year on year. In the whole EMEA region, 1,963 cars were sold in April 2016 and more than 11,687 since the beginning of this year.

On European soil, Infiniti was most successful in the UK: Sales went up to 362 vehicles – ten times more than in April 2015. Since January, 1,702 cars were sold in the UK, four times as much as in the same time frame of 2015, when 388 cars were sold there. In France, 180 customers have bought a new Infiniti in April, up by 329% compared to April of last year. Year-to-date results were 1,539, up by 298% from last year, when 387 cars were sold in France. With 95 vehicles sold, Infiniti in Germany was able to double its sales comparing April 2016 to April 2015. Furthermore, since January 958 cars have been sold in Germany, corresponding to an increase of 177% compared to last year, when 346 cars were sold. In Italy, 105 cars were sold in April. During this year, 675 Infiniti cars have been sold all over the country so far – 532 more than in the same period in the year before.

In all markets, Q30 has proven its strong capabilities for being the best-selling model for Infiniti in Europe ever.

“We are very happy with our sales results of the month of April, celebrating our Q30 as the star for Infiniti. With the QX30 crossover, the upgraded Q50 sports sedan and the all-new Q60 premium sports coupe to be launched later this year, we are very confident to continue boosting our sales further”, said François Goupil de Bouillé, Vice President of Infiniti Europe, Middle East and Africa.

In addition, Infiniti will soon launch “Q30 Private Drive”, an innovative test-drive program tailored to customers who demand high flexibility without making any compromises: After registering on the Infiniti website and selecting individual options, the client will receive a phone call from Infiniti within 24 hours to organize the test drive. Eventually, a Q30 will be delivered to the test driver’s address – together with a specialized car driver and demonstrator who will be able to support the individual requests the client may have.  

This premium service will start as of mid-May in several European countries, such as UK, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The offer will be available during four days in the areas of existing Infiniti dealers.
