Infiniti, Nissan's premium brand, named Canadian Karim Habib, former global design chief for BMW, as the brand's new chief designer.
Infiniti will likely end 2016 with record sales well beyond the 215,000 vehicles it sold worldwide last year, the Japanese brand's global chief told Reuters. Canada is playing no small part in the sales increase.
Infiniti is recalling roughly 60,000 Q50 models globally because the steering system that is key to the sedan's autonomous driving capabilities could malfunction. The recall covers 28,182 vehicles in the U.S. and 3,804 in Canada, Infiniti said.
