TOKYO– When the Infiniti G37 convertible debuts in the U.S. in 2009, it will be equipped with a retractable hardtop, according to www.edmunds.com. Spokesman Kyle Bazemore said a soft top was never a consideration, given the G37’s formidable European competition.
The Infiniti convertible is expected to go on sale in February 2009. Look for the G37 convertible to make its formal debut at an auto show sometime in the fall, although Infiniti has not decided which show will be most appropriate for the unveiling at this point. The company also has not yet determined pricing on the G37 convertible.
Nissan confirmed the production of the G37 convertible earlier this week in a detailed corporate plan that also laid out the Japanese automaker’s strategy for the launch of an electric vehicle in the U.S.
