Infiniti product plans for the next 5-years include new SUV and BMW 1-Series rival

We already know that the Infiniti M will be completely redesigned in 2010. The car will be offered with a 3.7L V6, a 3.0L V6 turbodiesel and a hybrid petrol-electric version. No V8 options are currently planned so for those of you looking to race your M against a BMW M5 – you may want to hold-off a little longer.

According to AutoCar, a new QX SUV will be launched in 2011. It will sit above the FX and will offer four-wheel-drive and seating for seven-passengers. Sources say that another seven-seater is in the works that will sit lower than the QX. If approved the un-named SUV could be on sale before 2015.

In 2012, Infiniti will go after upmarket luxury sedans with a new Q that was discontinued in 2006. The G sedan and G coupe will also be redesigned in 2012.

After 2012, Infiniti will finally bring to the market it’s much talked about BMW 1-Series rival. Sources say the entry-level Infiniti will include a battery-powered version that will be pitched as an electric-car.
