Japans Nissan Motor will sell its Infiniti luxury brand autos in its home market, seeking to capture growing demand for upscale cars and to better compete with German rivals such as BMW, the Japanese business daily Nikkei reported. The company will release the redesigned Skyline luxury sports sedan under the Infiniti brand as early as this winter, Nikkei said. The Skyline is sold as the Infiniti Q50 in the United States for a base price of $36,700 (3.6 million yen). The price and sales target in Japan have yet to be set. A plant in Tochigi Prefecture will handle production, Nikkei said.
