Infiniti confirmed that, consistent with its global expansion plans, it will manufacture vehicles in Europe from Nissan’s production base in Sunderland, United Kingdom.
 
The announcement represents a substantial investment of around 250 million pounds into the facility and is expected to secure a further 1.000 jobs at Sunderland and across the UK.
 
At Sunderland, the all-new premium entry compact Infiniti model is expected to be produced from 2015 and will allow the company to compete within the heart of the premium segment for the first time, underlining the brand’s ambition to become a major worldwide competitor.
 
When production begins, Infiniti will become the first new car brand to be manufactured in the UK on this scale in 23 years.
 
UK Production of Infiniti is expected to create an additional 1,000 jobs across the country, including 280 new jobs at the Sunderland Plant, with a capacity to produce 60,000 Infiniti models per year.
 
The announcement coincides with the news that this year, Nissan’s Sunderland Plant will produce more than half a million cars for the first time - the first UK manufacturer to achieve this milestone. During 2012, employment on site passed 6,000 for the first time and global exports from the plant now exceed five million units.
