Great Demand for each Infiniti model has decreased in the United States last year

Infiniti USA sales for 2019 are available and are not particularly pretty. Nissan's premium brand had a tough year with demand falling from 149,280 to 117,708 units, a worrying 21.1% decrease. Not only that, but every single nameplate saw a decline in sales in 2019. The largest percentage decline was the Mercedes GLA-based QX30.

The luxury compact crossover was only delivered to 3,229 customers in the USA. This corresponds to a decline in sales of 60.1%. It's no big surprise, as Infiniti itself admitted in early 2019 that the QX30 is not a successful product, and promises to develop a successor without any connection to Mercedes-Benz and its revised GLA.

The Q60 suffered the second-largest drop year-on-year as demand for the coupe dropped 44.4% to 5,043 units, while the Q70 also saw a massive drop of 43% to 2,552 cars. We should point out that the large sedan in the U.S. will no longer experience a 2020 model year since Infiniti will pull the plug in late 2019MY.

Infiniti celebrated its 30th anniversary last year. Some “Edition 30” models were introduced towards the end of 2019, but that wasn't enough to turn the tables. The QX50 and Q50 models saw sales drop 26.7% and 25.2%, respectively, while the only two models with no double-digit decline were the QX60 and QX80. Demand for these larger SUVs decreased by “only” 8.9% and 0.5%, respectively.
