Nissan will stop manufacturing its Infiniti model cars at its Sunderland plant later this year, the company has confirmed. The company said by the middle of 2019 manufacture of the Q30 and QX30 will cease, as it plans to exit western Europe and turn its attention to sales in the world’s two biggest car markets instead. The Infiniti models are currently sold globally but produced only in Britain. The move comes as Nissan looks to divert its resources to China and the United States, rather than Europe where non-European premium brands struggle to compete against the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
