BEIJING (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co’s (7201.T) premium brand Infiniti will start producing a new crossover SUV in China next year, using existing manufacturing capacity in the northeastern city of Dalian.
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.
