Infiniti executives must be watching 19 and Counting because the vehicle lineup is set to expand just like the Duggar family. The automaker is looking to brings its vehicle count up to 10 models by 2017, starting with the JX crossover and a Leaf-based all-electric vehicle, but those will quickly be followed by an Audi A3-fighting compact.

Slotting in below the Infiniti G, the newest upscale Nissan will be based on the Etherea concept that was shown off at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. There's no word on a timetable for the vehicle, but it'll certainly be here before 2017. The JX is scheduled to arrive in 2012, and the electric vehicle is earmarked for 2014. All three will help round out the Infiniti family, and fill a few voids in the automaker's lineup.
