Infiniti looks to improve sales and break last year global sales record for another year, VP Michael Bartsch spoke about Infiniti sales in the United States and globally : Infiniti looks to improve sales and break last year global sales record for another year, VP Michael Bartsch spoke about Infiniti sales in the United States and globally :

“Globally, Infiniti set a sales record of 180,000 units in our fiscal year that just ended, helped by increased sales here in the United States. Our new Q50 helped us post a series of record sales months. And with vehicles like the QX80, Infiniti is attracting some of the most successful people in America.”

These new updates won’t be much of a player in both the luxury full size SUV segment and the Mid Level luxury sport sedan segment, where the likes of the All New Aggressive Lexus GS; Mercedes Benz E Class, Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series. The Q70 has a lot of work to do and with the recent news of Nissan spinning off Infiniti as it’s own boss we hope Infiniti does do its homework and launch a Japanese partner and competitor to the GS to take in those German big boys who currently rule the segment. The QX80 has been a great seller for Infiniti an it will continue to see sales especially with the new Limited “Luxuryfied” Edition. The QX will see competition from way more expensive Lexus LS and the crossover base Mercedes Benz GL Class. With BMW X7 on its way this segment will soon heat up.

[2013 LA AUTO SHOW] Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe

Volkswagen fancy new and beautiful crossover coupe take’s a page from Audi playbook who took page from BMW’s playbook. Is showing of their refreshed CrossBlue Coupe at next week’s LA Auto Show. The CrossBlue has a very similar looked to the Audi Crosslane Coupe which debut at last year Paris Auto Show. Checkout The Press Release In The Press Volt Or below for everything you need to know on this compact coupe. As we have we reported on many times, the crossover both mid sized and compact size has taken off a lot and as we haven seen base on some many compact crossover we report on that are headed for the LA Auto Show, it looks like that will be the theme of this years LA Auto Show:

Volkswagen CrossBlue Front End

The CrossBlue is rocking a a plug in hybrid drive train that VW considers both sporty and efficient going as far as saying “This SUV can thus perform like a sports car” Am sure every automaker consider there cars sporty right? The plug in drive trian features a turbocharged direct-injection (TSI) V6 gasoline engine works together with two electric motors to produce as much as 415 horsepower,  with a 0 to 60 mph time of just 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 147 mph. Am guessing those are sporty times for a CUV right. HA! despite its performance, the CrossBlue Coupe has a manufacturer estimated combined fuel consumption of 70 MPGe. In hybrid mode, it allows for a theoretical range of around 570 miles. The CrossBlue Coupe can be driven as a zero emissions EV for up to 13 miles at a maximum speed of 75 mph.

The CrossBlue Coupe concept vehicle is based off the new Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB)

here is brake down of MQB tech on the CrossBlue Concept

EV mode Powered by its lithium-ion battery, the CrossBlue Coupé can cover a distance of up to 13 miles in pure electric mode; top speed is limited to 75 mph. In EV mode, only the 114-hp rear electric motor provides propulsion. In all-electric driving, the V6 TSI engine is decoupled from the drivetrain by opening the clutch, and the engine is shut off. As soon as there is a need for gasoline power—because of the battery charge or other parameters—it is coupled to the drivetrain again, jolt-free, within fractions of a second.
Charging The driver can intentionally switch over to a charging mode by pressing another button on the center console. The TSI engine charges the battery while driving in order to store enough electrical energy for EV operation later in the journey—for instance, in an urban area.
Coasting As soon as the driver releases the accelerator pedal, the engine and electric motors are decoupled from the drivetrain and the engine is shut off, provided that the battery is sufficiently charged. This is referred to as “coasting.” No emissions are generated.
Battery regeneration Whenever the driver releases the accelerator pedal or applies the brakes, and the battery is insufficiently charged, the two electric motors act as generators and feed energy recovered from the brakes into the lithium-ion battery. In this case, the TSI engine is also shut off and decoupled from the drivetrain to ensure maximum regeneration.
Boosting When very sporty performance is required, the electric motors form an alliance with the TSI engine known as “boosting”: in this mode, all four wheels are driven.
Offroad (“propshaft by wire”): All four wheels are also driven whenever Offroad mode is intentionally activated. In this case, however, the front electric motor—which is now supplied with energy by the TSI engine—operates exclusively as a generator and a power source for the electric motor at the rear. Since the energy for driving the rear wheels is electrical rather than mechanical, this is referred to as “propshaft by wire”

The CrossBlue Coupé is exactly 192.5 inches long, 79.3 inches wide, and 66.1 inches high. The vehicle thus has a confident, low slung, and four-square stance that is enhanced by the wide tracks (67.3 inches at the front, 68.0 inches at the back), the relatively long 117.3-inch wheelbase, and large 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels that are shod with 285/40 tires that were specially designed for the concept car.

The Interior of the CrossBlue concept is beautiful, magnificent i love the creation of space, the interior has a high end feel and as i aside the car feels more Audi in design its also feel Audi in the interior as well, with all its technology, The CrossBlue features a iPod in the front seats head rest. along with a 12.3 inch instrument screen display, along with a 10.1-inch infotainment display.

Here is how Volkswagen brakes down the interior of the CrossBlue Concept;

An especially prominent feature of the elegant and clean interior is a horizontal dashboard graphic that extends into the side door trims. Upscale materials abound in the cabin: velvety soft Nappa leather in “Anthracite Pearl” and “Asphalto”; chrome surfaces that are polished on top and sandblasted in a matte finish on their chamfered edges; dark aluminum; naturally-treated wood accents; and “Graphite” colored Alcantara® for the roof pillars and headliner. Two-color configurable ambient lighting is matched to the vehicle drive mode: in “Eco”, it matches the “CrossOrange” exterior paint and switches to red in “Sport”. The interplay of forms, colors, and materials makes a typically masculine SUV statement, combined with an urbane ambience.

Five comfortable seats. The seats are also upholstered in elegant Nappa leather. The individual seat panels are designed in either the dark “Anthracite Pearl” or the contrasting “Asphalto”. The shading visually emphasizes the sculpting of the seats themselves. The rear bench seat offers fore-and-aft adjustment, three backrest positions, and folds in a two-thirds/one-third fashion.

Programmable instrument cluster. The instrument cluster is designed with analog gauges but is underpinned by user programmable software. The type of information changes between the “Eco” and “Sport” modes. In “Eco” mode, the “Powermeter” and battery status are two of the items shown in the left gauge, while the right-hand one displays speed and fuel level. The center dial is used to access functions such as gear selection, driving range, date and time, the weather, and navigation functionality such as distance to destination and points of interest. In “Sport” mode, the left-hand instrument shows the tachometer and displays torque and battery status at its center.

A mobile mini iPad® has been integrated in each of the head restraints of the first seating row, so that passengers in the rear seats can also fully enjoy the audio, video, and online programs. Meanwhile, a Dynaudio® sound system delivers crystal-clear audio.
