Infiniti vehicles are manufactured by Japanese auto manufacturer Nissan. As of 2015, Nissan manufactures eight different models for the Infiniti brand. Each of these vehicles is a re-badged Nissan vehicle with premium features.
Inifniti is marketed as the luxury division of Nissan. It was created as a response to Honda's luxury division, Acura, but whereas Acura was also the performance division of Honda, Infiniti has focused more on the luxury element. The brand launched with two U.S. models in 1989, the Q45 and the M30, but this number has steadily grown over the years. Infiniti was primarily a North American brand until 2013 when it was introduced in Japan. As of 2015, Infiniti vehicles are available in 15 countries.
