There are over 30
car brands
available to buy in the U.S., but the industry is more consolidated than you might think.
For example, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC are separate brands, but they are all owned by General Motors.
While you might be aware that Ford owns Lincoln, or Toyota owns
, some brand origins are less well known.
One such brand is Infiniti. The luxury car maker has been operating in the U.S. for over thirty years, but many Americans have no idea who they are!
Infiniti is Nissan’s luxury brand.

A brief history of Infiniti

Infiniti is the luxury division of Japanese carmaker Nissan, itself a subsidiary of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
The brand was founded in 1989 to target the premium vehicle segments in the U.S. and distinguish itself from Nissan’s mainstream image.
Interestingly, while Infiniti’s headquarters are located in Japan, the Infiniti brand has never been sold there.
In January 2018, Infiniti chief executive Hiroto Saikawa announced it would be transformed into an electric brand, with all gas vehicles phased out within three years.
Unfortunately—due to poor sales and manufacturing delays during Covid—Infiniti did not meet this deadline, but the company remains committed to an all-electric lineup in the near future.
