Their efforts to sell them in the UK seem to have permanently been half-farted (not, not a typo!). Shame because there are and have been some good models in the range. Manufacturing a model or two in Sunderland have been attempts to penetrate the larger European market but with the prospect of having to pay export duties it probably seems time to cut their losses...

They’ve never really tried. I don’t understand why, but not surprised they don’t intend to build them here, they must export most bit like Honda

That's very sad, and another blow for Sunderland :(

 

So they're pulling Infiniti from Western Europe?  Blimey.

That bit is surprising given they've just done a zero tariffs deal with the EU (whoever that is!).
