It was rumored for quite a while but now it's official: Nissan will pull the Infiniti luxury brand from western Europe in early 2020.
Nissan's announcement to stop production of the Infiniti model at Sunderland follows a decision to stop selling the model in Western Europe amid poor sales.
The models' shuttering will be the second blow within weeks for the U.K.'s biggest auto plant after Nissan abandoned a plan to make the X-Trail sport utility vehicle there, citing uncertainty over Brexit as a factor. Both models are sold globally but produced only in Britain.
The Nissan division added that it aimed to transform Infiniti into a "top challenger brand" in the premium sector of the world vehicle marketplace.
As part of the plan, Infiniti will electrify its product line-up from 2021 onward, discontinue diesel offerings, and focus its resources on its biggest opportunities. Infiniti's sales in western Europe nearly halved past year to 5,800 vehicles.
