Roland Krüger gets testy when anybody suggests that the product pipeline isn't humming right now at Infiniti.
"We're doing everything we've said we would," Krüger, president of Infiniti Motor Co., assured Automotive News last week during the Paris auto show. "We have some big things coming."
To the naked eye, at least, the premium brand has been in rebuilding mode of late. At a time when the market can't seem to get enough crossovers, Infiniti dropped its QX70 crossover last year. And while the industry is abuzz over electrification, Infiniti has discontinued its hybrid offerings.
And some watchers are asking why Infiniti never went ahead with the showstopping 550-hp Q50 Eau Rouge halo concept it unveiled four years ago, before Krüger replaced Johan de Nysschen as president.
