The first luxury vehicle produced in the state of Tennessee, an Infiniti JX luxury crossover in Emerald Green, rolled off the production line during a special ceremony Monday, Feb. 20, at Nissan’s Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant.
The all-new, 7-passenger 2013 Infiniti JX, the latest addition to the Infiniti Inspired Performance lineup, goes on sale at Infiniti retailers in March.
Attending the celebration alongside Smyrna technicians who will build the new JX were Nissan Americas Vice Chairman Bill Krueger, Vice President Manufacturing Smyrna – Decherd Susan Brennan, Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore and U.S. Representative Scott DesJarlais of the 4th Congressional District of Tennessee.[ Also Read: Swimsuit Supermodel Curves in Lexus Campaign ]
