Infiniti sets new April sales record
On the heels of the all-time sales record that Infiniti achieved in the first quarter 2015, the company successfully carried this momentum into April. Infiniti sold 16,700 vehicles last month, an increase of more than 1,700 vehicles or 12 per cent compared to April 2014. This marks the best April in Infiniti's history.

We continue to implement our growth strategy on our way to establish Infiniti as one of the key global premium brands in the automotive industry. I would like to thank our customers around the world who made Infiniti their trusted purchase."

In the Europe, Middle East and Africa, Infiniti sold more than 1,450 vehicles in April driven by strong results in Western Europe, Middle East and South Africa all of them up versus last year's April.
Lastly, Asia and Oceania also achieved a best April ever. Infiniti sold approximately 400 vehicles in the region, continuing the growth with a 19 per cent increase from 2014.
