Mercedes-Benz engineers will develop the new British-built Infiniti Q30 crossover hatch to production, in an effort to speed the model to market.
"This is a quick program and Infiniti needs a new model in Europe fast," says Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen.
The Q30 is based on Mercedes’ new front-drive MFA platform, which underpins the new A-class.
"We will set the specifications and parameters and Mercedes will engineer the car. It is their platform," added de Nysschen.
