The very first unit of the brand new Infiniti Q50, aimed towards the Malaysian auto market, has recently rolled off the production line in Japan.
After it was officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, back in January, the brand new Infiniti Q50 is now being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing that the first unit of the model, aimed towards Malaysia, has just rolled off the assembly line. The model has been produced in Japan, in the Tochigi facility, and the ceremony has been presided by Carlos Ghosn, the president and CEO of Nissan, and by Johan de Nysschen, the Infiniti president.
As a quick reminder, on the American market, the 2014 Infiniti Q50 is coming with a 3.7 liter V6 engine under its hood, which is good for 328 HP. The model can also be ordered as a hybrid, with the Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid System with Intelligent Dual Clutch Control. All versions of the 2014 Q50 are getting a seven-speed automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters. The 3.7 liter V6 and the 3.5 liter Hybrid versions can get a choice of rear-wheel drive or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive systems, depending on the trim levels chosen. In the U.S., the model will arrive in dealerships in June.
