Four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine added to Infiniti Q50 line-up
The lightweight 1991cc turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine develops 350Nm of torque and 211PS of power which is transmitted through a seven-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. Flexible and efficient driving is assisted by a wide torque band curve that begins at just 1,250rpm.
Manufactured with the latest fuel-efficient certified technology and tuned by Infiniti engineers for an engaging throttle response, the 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine joins the new 2.2-litre direct injection turbo-diesel engine, and the celebrated high-performance V6-configuration hybrid powertrains. Over the next five years, Infiniti will increase its model range by sixty per cent and more than double the number of its powertrains.
First revealed in Europe at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show the Q50 petrol was rolled out to the rest of Infiniti’s global markets by year end.
The Infiniti brand was launched in 1989. Its range of premium automobiles is currently built in manufacturing facilities in Japan and the United States.
As the Title Partner and Vehicle Performance Partner of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, Infiniti has a far-reaching technical collaboration with the Formula One team, and Sebastian Vettel, its four-time World Champion driver, serves as Infiniti’s director of performance.
