“Infiniti began a feasibility study with supplier Magna Steyr in May this year to determine a possible third-party production site in Europe for the premium compact Infiniti,” Infiniti said in a statement. “However, Infiniti ended the feasibility study this week and has decided to produce the vehicle in-house in a European production facility as part of the brand’s overall expansion production plans.”

The compact Infiniti vehicle is scheduled for launch in 2015. The automaker said that it will announce a production location and more product details closer to the start of production.

Infiniti still intends for the all-new compact premium vehicle to share a platform developed with Mercedes.
