Car maker Infiniti has announced that sales in the Middle East rose by 31 percent in the three months to June 30 compared to the same period last year.

Infiniti said it sold 1,524 units across the Middle East in the quarter, making it one of the fastest growing premium automotive brands in the market.

It said in a statement that the QX60 remained Infiniti's best-selling SUV in the region, adding that the QX80 achieved all time record high in sales.

Infiniti added that it saw a 53 percent increase in vehicle sales in the UAE and had also strengthened its offering in the Saudi Arabian market.

Infiniti Motor Company Ltd is headquartered in Hong Kong with sales operations in approximately 50 countries. Its range of premium automobiles is currently built in manufacturing facilities in Japan and the United States.

Production in China and Europe will start soon along with the expansion of the brand's portfolio.

In May, Infiniti said sales increased to 5,892 units across the Middle East during the previous financial year which ended in March.

The vehicle manufacturer reported a rise of 19 percent in deliveries compared to the year-earlier period.
