Where Are INFINITI Cars Made?

Q50 Exterior

Where are INFINITI cars made? If you’re considering a new or used INFINITI to upgrade your Dalton, GA commute, you may be curious to know more about who makes INFINITI SUVs, crossovers, and sedans before you buy. Keep reading to explore the past and present of INFINITI with INFINITI of Chattanooga.


INFINITI was launched as the luxury division of Nissan Motor Company in 1989. By the mid-2002s, leadership at Nissan had decided it was time for INFINITI to strike out on its own with a distinct brand identity. While it’s still Nissan who owns INFINITI, many drivers know the brand by its own reputation, rather than as an extension of Nissan.

When it comes to who makes INFINITI, the answer is a question of semantics. As the owner, Nissan technically “makes” INFINITI vehicles, but INFINITI production plants operate independently. While early INFINITI models shared engines and other parts with Nissan vehicles, the two have diverged over time.

Where Are INFINITI Vehicles Produced?

You now know that it’s Nissan, the Japanese automaker, who owns INFINITI. But where are INFINITI cars made compared to Nissan models? As the more mainstream brand, Nissan production is far more widespread than INFINITI, with plants on almost every continent. INFINITI operates plants in the US, Mexico, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Britain, but many models continue to be produced in Japan — including some of the most popular with Dunlap drivers:


Who makes INFINITI is an important question, because you want to be sure that the vehicle you buy continues to represent the brand’s forward-thinking values. There’s good news on this front: in January 2018, INFINITI chief executive Hiroto Saikawa declared a commitment to transform INFINITI into an all-electric brand by 2021.
