The First Chinese-Built Infiniti Is A Longer Q50

While only China will get the Infiniti Q50L, Americans and Canadians can get excited about the arrival of the Q70L, an upgraded version of the car that was launched in China back in 2012.

Regular Q50 sedans will still be imported from Japan, but the extended-wheelbase car will be the first Infiniti to be produced at the Xiangyang factory in Hubei province, which mark the opening of Infiniti's fourth assembly plant globally. Nissan's luxury brand is big in China.

The Q50L is 1.9 inches longer, which comes really handy in a country where the average high of men is 5' 5.75". Overall length grows to 191 inches with a wheelbase of 114.1 inches. Power comes from a 2.0 turbo four linked to a seven-speed automatic that produces 221 hp and 258 foot pounds.

It also comes with adaptive steering, a massive touchscreen, active lane control, anti-glare mirrors, mood lighting, a rear sunshade and a 14-speaker Bose hi-fi. Sounds like a party at the back.
