"In March, the next expression of our Inspired Performance, the Infiniti JX 7-passenger luxury crossover, goes on sale nationwide at our retailers."
The all-new Infiniti JX, the brand's first crossover with three-row seating, offers the World's First Blind Spot Intervention System, which detects obstacles when backing out of a parking space and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid a potential impact.

Also in March, at the Geneva Motor Show, Infiniti will debut the EMERG-E, a sports car concept featuring a range-extending, mid-ship hybrid powertrain that offers performance and zero emission capability.
