Infiniti is sincerely working on its new brand nomenclature strategy, which they have announced on December, 18th 2012 in Hong Kong. The nomenclature strategy is applied to every product of Infiniti which ranges from Q – for Sedans, Coupes and Convertibles to QX – for Crossover and SUV models. As per the strategy each model is uniquely identified by a double digit representing hierarchy within that range. In the advanced step of brand promotion, Infiniti is quite prepared with the world debut of 2014 Infiniti Q50 which is an all-new Luxury Sports Sedan a replacement of G37 sedan, in January at the North American International Auto Show 2013 in DETROIT on 2013 and the new Q50 will be lucky one to have first Infiniti’s Q badge.
The new nomenclature of Infiniti’s Auto-products will be implemented in logical stages within the existing auto range, as the next-generation Infiniti models i.e. the 2014 model year products are introduced. The new brand promotion is all done from a Advance Research and Evaluation, which Infiniti thinks that ‘Q’ captured the inspiration within the next generation of Infiniti models, as well as emphasizing our performance credentials while harking back to our heritage with the Q45 – Infiniti’s first iconic flagship product in 1989.

Infiniti Announces New Naming Strategy
HONG KONG, December 18th 2012: Marking another significant step in its plan to further expand its presence in the premium automotive sector, Infiniti today announced details of a new nomenclature strategy to be applied to its complete product range beginning with the 2014 model year. The first model to carry Infiniti’s new Q badge will be the Q50, an all-new premium sports sedan to be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2013.
The premium automotive brand will see its model range simply prefixed either by Q – for sedans, coupes and convertibles, or QX, for crossover and SUV models. Each model will be further identified by a double digit representing hierarchy within the range.
This strategic change reflects Infiniti’s desire for clarity and cohesiveness as it embarks on ambitious growth plans, including significant expansion of the Infiniti portfolio.
Commenting on the revised naming philosophy, Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company Limited, said: “Over the past few months, we have talked at length with our retailers, our customers, and our business partners about our brand. The need for a new identity and direction to promote consumer familiarity with our model range as we expand the portfolio became evident. To achieve this, we clearly needed a simple and consistent nomenclature framework. After exhaustive research and evaluation, we concluded that ‘Q’ captured the inspiration within the next generation of Infiniti models, as well as emphasizing our performance credentials while harking back to our heritage with the Q45 – Infiniti’s first iconic flagship product in 1989.”
Infiniti’s new nomenclature strategy will be implemented in logical stages within the existing product range, as 2014 model year variants are introduced. The brand’s future plans include a range of next-generation Infiniti models that will carry Q and QX badging from the outset.
