When the new Infiniti Q50 goes on sale, from mid November, a version specifically designed for business users will be included within the range. The ‘Executive’, will be equipped to suit the higher mileage user with one of the most advanced satellite navigation systems and a highly competitive finance package on offer.
Available as Executive and Premium Executive, with either manual or automatic transmission, the pricing starts from £29,870 and comes with a headline contract hire leasing rate of just £299.99 plus VAT per month (3+35 rentals, non maintenance, 10,000 miles a year). Higher specified versions, such as the Q50 Premium Executive with satellite navigation, heated and powered leather seats with memory and I-Key plus many other features, costs from £33,470 or with contract hire just £336.99 per month.
The Q50’s 114g/km CO2 rating (manual transmission) also delivers highly competitive benefit-in-kind tax bills for drivers. A 20 per cent taxpayer in 2013/14 will face a benefit-in-kind tax bill of just £83.45 a month (40 per cent taxpayer: £166.90) for the manual. Even in year three (2015/16) this rises to only £99.56 (£199.13). Lease costs and BIK liability for the automatic version are similarly competitive (see table).
The Infiniti Q50 Executive’s 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine boasts 170PS (168bhp) and 400Nm of pulling power for spirited acceleration (0-62mph in 8.5 seconds) with exceptional fuel economy: 64.2mpg in the manual and 58.9mpg in the automatic (combined cycle figures).
Executive versions are available to order now with deliveries expected in mid November.
