The new sport-utility vehicle would be the third Infiniti vehicle model to be produced locally in China, the Hong Kong-headquartered brand’s No.2 market after the United States. 

    The company did not provide any more details about the SUV in a statement seen by Reuters.

    Infiniti is expected to announce the move as early as at a planned press briefing at the Guangzhou auto show on Friday.
