NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In its second full month at INFINITI retailers, the all-new 2019 QX50 luxury crossover, powered with the world's first variable compression engine, was up more than 51 percent, contributing to its best May with 1,859 deliveries.   

The INFINITI QX50 is defined by distinctive proportions which set the car apart from its competitors. Influenced by INFINITI's "Powerful Elegance" design language, the all-new QX50 has an elevated, commanding SUV stance and strong character lines.

Boosted by the increased traffic that the all-new QX50 is bringing to INFINTI showrooms, the QX60 7-passenger luxury crossover also saw an 8 percent increase, bringing its second best May with more than 3,700 delivered.    

In total, INFINITI reported deliveries of 11,625 vehicles in the U.S. during May, down 7 percent against last year's record.
