signature premium Nissan, Infiniti, has for many years been working to grow and become a rival to the height of Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW. This work has been focused on the growth range of products that the manufacturer offers, and as proof of this we have the compact Q30. Another of the pillars on which they are working is the expansion of your net sales in markets that before were not present and that are already taking place.
In this case the news comes a few rumors (Reuters) who said that the partnership agreement that there is agreement between the Alliance Renault-Nissan and Mercedes-Benz was going through a bad time. The thread of this information, the firm most affected out of them was Infiniti since it is the most is working with the signature of the star. But the commands most of the Alliance has come to the fore to explain the situation and deny the truthfulness of the rumors.
Carlos Ghosn has appeared before the media in the CES of Las Vegas for deny rumors and to clarify that the collaboration between the two groups remains stronger than ever. The point has been carefully explained,and for which they have been these rumors, focuses in the use of the evolution of the platform MFA2 (now known as MFA) that will give life to the next models are small and compact and of both groups.
Until now Infiniti Mercedes-Benz were going to use this platform to to give life to the next generation Class (and their derivatives) as well as the Infiniti Q30. However, the firm nippon has decided not to use this platform for now more for the development of the next Q40. However, this decision has been taken now, does not imply that the agreement of collaboration between both firms has been broken.
face to the next generation of the Q30 is still a time and the firm will have to decide if you are using the modern platform that gives life to the current generation Renault Megane or finally decide to upgrade the current platform MFA in their own way.
