The Infiniti ESQ has been caught on camera without any sort of camouflage, prior to a launch scheduled to later this year in China.

Earlier this week several images of a Nissan Juke lookalike surfaced the web, indicating Infiniti will be getting its own version for the Chinese market. The car in question can be seen in these spy shots which show a pre-production unit wearing the body of the Juke Nismo.

Interestingly, all the badges have been hidden but word on the street is that Nissan will sell the Juke in China as an Infiniti ESQ. The funky crossover will be powered by the Juke Nismo's 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with 200 PS (147 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) delivered to an all-wheel drive system via a CVT.

The car will be produced in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture and is set to go on sale before the end of the year.
