In order to meet increasing vehicle demand, Nissan has just announced plans to develop an Infiniti North American plant; George Harte Infiniti of West Haven, CT uncovers the latest story
Online PR News – 23-April-2013 – West Haven, CT – Nissan Motor Co. has recently announced that plans for a North American Infiniti vehicle plant is in the works. In order to meet growing demand, this plant would produce around 10,000 premium Infiniti vehicles a year beginning in 2017. George Harte Infiniti of West Haven, CT is staying in touch with the topic, keeping customers up to date on the latest news and information.
“One of the challenges we face is that we really do not have a diversified geographical footprint for manufacturing,” states Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Co. “Apart from producing one model in the U.S. for global consumption, the Infiniti brand’s current production was totally concentrated.”
Opening a new plant in North America would allow Infiniti to globalize their production and reduce costs for North American Infiniti vehicles. In recent years, Nissan has begun largely shifting production outside of Japan with efforts to make more cars in the markets where the company sells their vehicles. While no specific North American locations have been decided yet, Nissan is exploring options in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Infiniti recently reported a 9 percent increase in sales this March, totaling unit sales to 11,103. The first quarter sales sum to 27,375 vehicles which is up 4.4 percent from last year. A large part of March sales increases were due to Infiniti’s luxury crossover and sport utility vehicles sales, jumping 50.9 percent this March.
“March was a great month for Infiniti, especially for the JX luxury crossover, and propels us strongly into spring,” explains vice president of Infiniti Americas, Ben Poore. “Our retailers reported increased traffic for the month, in part thanks to the impact of our corporate partnership with NCAA Basketball and the Men’s Final Four, and we expect this will continue throughout the summer.”
