The Infiniti Q50 is going to make its European debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and under the hood will be the first result of a powertrain partnership between Renault-Nissan and Daimler AG.
Technical details won’t be unveiled until the show in March, but it is likely that both a turbo four-cylinder gas engine and a turbo four-diesel engine will be on display. The Q50 is the first Infiniti vehicle to use engines sourced from a Daimler-Nissan/Renault partnership that will also be shared with Mercedes-Benz.
A new plant in Decherd, Tenn. is currently being built to manufacture turbo four-cylinder engines for the Mercedes C-Class. Infiniti’s announcement today that the Q50 is coming to Geneva with “European power” offer strong hints at what will power the car.
