Infiniti is not going to be confused as a serious mover and shaker in the premium market, at least in the way Mercedes, BMW, and Audi are treated. However, Nissan’s upscale brand did make some strong gains in 2016 when it delivered more than 230,000 vehicles for the entire year. Not only was that number up seven percent compared to its total in 2015, it also represented a new sales record for the company. So with bright and sunny days seemingly ahead for Infiniti, now appears to be a good a time as any for the brand to drop big news regarding its future. Well, Infiniti did just that by confirming plans to bring an electric sports car to market by 2020.
