As Toyota used to do with Lexus cars, Nissan sell most of the same Infiniti models as plain Nissans in Japan. The next questions is then why they haven’t made the change and why Toyota took so long to do so, to which I imagine the answer is that Japanese people who would buy such cars didn’t want to appear flashy by having a non-standard brand. Fund managers etc are much more happy to flash their cash nowadays, however, so I imagine it’s only a matter of time before Nissan makes the change that Toyota did.
Why are there no Infiniti cars in Japan?
