Infiniti Q60 Coupe to be Axed in 2023

The Infiniti Q60 was meant to recapture the G35 and G37 Coupe’s glory

  • The Q60 never sold well.

  • It was introduced in 2016 for the 2017 model year.

Even now, in mid-2022, both the Infiniti G35 and G37 coupes are still highly sought-after on the pre-owned market. They sparked the imagination of an entire generation of car enthusiasts and in 2016, Infiniti launched what was expected to be its rightful successor, the Q60 coupe.

For much of the 2010s, Infiniti struggled to find its way in the premium automotive world and for the most part, lost its way. A series of poor or unlucky decisions saw its market shares and sales numbers decline dramatically in some cases. Of the current crop of Infiniti products, the Q60 will be dropped, according to Automotive News, leaving the donor 4-door sedan as the sole car in the brand’s lineup.

It will be argued by Infiniti that interest in luxury coupes has fallen over the last few years in favour of SUVs. While that may be true, the BMW 4 Series Coupé and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe continue to do relatively well.

In the shrinking segment, it makes no sense for Infiniti to invest in an update that, despite Nissan’s best efforts, would more than likely not positively affect the Q60’s fortunes.
