Infiniti’s often discussed future premium compact model will be built at Nissan’s UK plant in Sunderland, Nissan says. It was previously announced that the new Infiniti will “share a platform developed with Mercedes.

The car is one of the outcomes of the partnership between the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Daimler. According to Nissan, the car will “create a further 1,000 jobs at Sunderland and across the UK.” Which is quite a number for a low-volume car. Could it be that Daimler will also move in at Sunderland?  As we learned from the abortive GM/PSA plans, true savings come when you don’t just share the platform, but also the plant.

Time and capacity utilization will tell.
