Nissan head honcho Carlos Ghosn has made it public at last week’s Tokyo Motor Show that he wants the company’s luxury brand, Infiniti, to market a fully-electric, battery-powered model which will target the high performance market.
The executive also revealed that his company will be attacking the compact hatchback segment, with a new Infiniti model, set to rival the competitors like Audi, with the A3, BMW, with the 1 Series and most importantly, local Japanese corporation Lexus, which revealed the LF-Ch hatchback concept in Frankfurt and has also brought it to Tokyo last week.
Considering Nissan’s big ambitions, it is likely that the large company will put up a real fight in these two new segments. Where do you peg the company’s chances? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
