While the automotive world may currently be focused on the Los Angeles Auto Show, those looking to stay ahead of the curve have their sights set farther down the road. One such automaker is Infiniti. On the first of the LA press days, the Japanese luxury brand has announced an all-new model to debut in Detroit this January.

According to Infiniti, an all-new model will be unveiled at the 2013 North American International Auto show. The debut will be accompanied by a performance from world renowned Cirque Du Soleil as well as a live stream simulcast of the event.

It's unclear whether Infiniti will be showing a redesign of the G sedan, which has been spotted testing, or a new sub-G compact performance-luxury four-door. We will know for sure on January 14 when we bring you news form the Infiniti stand.

The presentation will also include an map of Infiniti's strategy moving forward, by president Johan de Nysschen. De Nysschen was appointed in July of this year, following the move of Infiniti's headquarters to Hong Kong. According to Infiniti, the luxury brand is aiming at a "new era of inspiration, growing its market share, with the strategic expansion of its business worldwide." This all-new vehicle will be an integral element to any future expansion for the Japanese automaker.

INFINITI TO DEBUT ALL-NEW MODEL
AT 2013 NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW


Press Conference Will Feature 'Inspired' Performance by Cirque Du Soleil® Simulcast Online

Los Angeles (November 28, 2012) – Infiniti announced today it will unveil an all-new luxury sports sedan, January 14, at the brand's North American International Auto Show press conference, following a special performance by Cirque du Soleil.

For those not able to attend the press conference in Detroit, Infiniti will host a live stream of the event at InfinitiUSA.com and on the brand's Facebook page, Facebook.com/Infiniti.

Today's announcement comes as the luxury brand undergoes a new era of inspiration, growing its market share with the strategic expansion of its business worldwide under the helm of new leadership, Infiniti's president Johan de Nysschen.

In addition to the January 14 unveiling, de Nysschen will present his vision for the brand in a speech that outlines a new direction for Infiniti in the years to come.

Infiniti made a number of strategic changes in 2012, including relocating its global headquarters to a new state-of-the-art facility in Hong Kong. The move in May was followed by the appointment in July of de Nysschen as the brand's new president.

Since then, Infiniti has recorded U.S. sales increases year-over-year of 20.6 percent through October, pointing to a strong finish for 2012 and an even stronger start to 2013.

      Most likely the new G, which will also give Japanese enthusiasts their first look at the V37 Skyline sedan.

      Please be a 1-series competitor! There is not enough small, sporty, premium cars yet

      I will happily bet this will be a rebadged Altima. JLX/Pathfinder, 350/G37 Coupe.

        I'll bet you $10,000 it is not a rebadged Altima. Get ready to send the money to my Paypal account because you will lose.

        Can't speak for the Pathfinder but the G37 is definitely not a rebadged 350Z. Sharing platforms does not mean rebadged.

        Nissan could easily bring over the JDM Nissan Teana as an all new Infiniti I35 which would compete with the Lexus ES350. Why haven't they though of this yet?

      I believe this is the first Infiniti to come out of their alliance with Mercedes Benz. So perhaps we will see something underhood from MB?

      Re-badge of the Nissan, definite. If that's not the case, this could be the first step in the right direction for NIssan in a decade.

      It'll be the G37 and the Geneva show will be the smaller entry level sedan

      I am pretty curious about the new smaller sedan (I'm at 12 years between my two G20s), but have not been pleased with Infiniti's design direction lately.
