Infiniti saw an increase of 1% in February 2012, with sales of 9,239 units, versus 9,144 units a year earlier. Year-to-date sales for Infiniti are 16,035, down 3.1% from 16,549 units in 2011.
The Infiniti G Sedan hit sales of 4,334 units (up 7.2%), the updated 2012 Infiniti FX sold 1,108 units (up 4%), The Infiniti QX full-size luxury SUV sold 1,162 (up 28.8%), considered its best February sales.
“In February, Infiniti’s corporate partnership of NCAA Men’s Basketball helped us get the word out about our full-line of luxury performance automobiles, helping us set records for the Infiniti G Line and Infiniti QX,” said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Americas. “In March, the next expression of our Inspired Performance, the Infiniti JX 7-passenger luxury crossover, goes on sale nationwide at our retailers.”
The all-new Infiniti JX, which is the company’s first crossover with three-row seating, is known for its World’s First Blind Spot Intervention System, which detects obstacles when backing out of a parking space and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid a potential impact.
At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Infiniti will debut the EMERG-E, a sports car which features a range-extending, mid-ship hybrid powertrain that offers performance and zero emission capability.
