Infiniti Production to Start at Sunderland Plant

YOKOHAMA, Japan, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Infiniti's first premium compact car to be produced at Nissan's UK  Plant in Sunderland from 2015
  • Around £250 million investment
  • Around 1,000 additional UK jobs
  • Announced in the week that Sunderland produces 500,000 units annually for the first time, an all-time industry record

Infiniti, the premium car brand of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd, today confirmed that, consistent with its global expansion plans, it will manufacture vehicles in Europe from Nissan's award winning production base in Sunderland, United Kingdom.

The announcement represents a substantial investment of around £250mn into the facility and is expected to secure a further 1,000 jobs at Sunderland and across the UK.

Colin Dodge CBE, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd Executive Vice President and Chief Performance Officer, stated: "This milestone, our first premium product to be manufactured at Sunderland, reconfirms our commitment to UK manufacturing and the ongoing success of the plant, which is moving up the value chain.

"Just as important, the new Infiniti, which will be exported around the world, is being developed with help from our London design centre and our European Technical Centre."

Attending a ceremony at Sunderland, Business Secretary Vince Cable said: "Sunderland will be the only place in the world to make this new premium compact car. Nissan in the UK goes from strength to strength - not only will the new car be made here and exported all over the world, the UK has already contributed to its design and development.

"Today's news is a strong endorsement of the quality of Britain's car industry, which is creating jobs, taking on apprentices and contributing to building a stronger economy. The auto sector is living up to being one of the great success stories of our industrial strategy and a testimony to government and private sector working together in close partnership."

The exciting 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.

Because of capacity limitations at Sunderland, securing the new Infiniti will mean that a C-segment hatchback previously announced for the plant in April will be manufactured elsewhere. Sourcing for this vehicle will be decided and announced at a later date.
