Infiniti Q30 makes history in Sunderland.

Infiniti Q30 rolls into production in the UK

By Grace Cunningham on 7th December 2015

Infiniti Q30 active compact has rolled into production at Infiniti’s Sunderland factory following a £250m investment creating over 300 new jobs at the facility.

The Q30 is the first Infiniti vehicle to be manufactured in Europe with the decision to build the Q30 in the UK made in 2012 in recognition of the outstanding quality standards reached by the workforce in Sunderland over many years. With an expanding network of Infiniti Retail Centres in the UK, the introduction of Q30 manufacturing in Sunderland demonstrates the brand’s strong commitment to the UK. Infiniti is the first new car brand to be manufactured on this scale in the UK in 23 years, supported by a £9.2m grant from the UK Government through the Regional Growth Fund.

“Q30 comes at a moment of significant opportunity for Infiniti. Following a period of record global sales, we are entering a new segment with the Q30. This new active compact will play a vital role in our strategy to become a top tier global premium brand.” – Roland Krueger.

The Infiniti Q30 active compact will go on sale in 2016.
