The 2022 Infiniti QX80's Big Infotainment Update Comes at Not Much Extra Cost

  The 2022 Infiniti QX80's Big Infotainment Update Comes at Not Much Extra Cost The Infiniti QX80 is an imposing SUV. While Infiniti isn’t changing any of the QX80’s gargantuan exterior proportions for 2022—it’s the same size it was since this model debuted for 2011—the inside is getting a much-appreciated update. And the best part? The price for this upgraded tech experience is barely more expensive than last year’sThe interior was just refreshed for the 2020 model year, but the infotainment system it received was an awkward double-screen setup. Stacked one on top of the other, each screen controlled different functions. It wasn't very easy to use.

The strong increase in energy prices will remain high in the coming year, according to the World Bank and thus ensure inflationary pressure worldwide.

economic growth could also be partly relocated to the producers from the energy porters to producers, the World Bank explained in a report on the commodity markets. Energy prices are therefore intended to decline only in the second half of the coming year in the face of a better offer position and a slow growing demand.

«The increase in energy prices is a significant risk for global inflation in the short period and could continue to weaken growth in countries that import energy," explained World Bank Volkswirt Ayhan Kose. The rapid increase in raw material prices could make the recovery from the corona crisis more complicated. The inflation rate has increased significantly in Germany, the eurozone as a whole and also in the USA.

The prices for natural gas and coal could continue to rise in the short term in the face of low stocks, the World Bank warned. Production, for example by additional gas production in the US, will not increase significantly in the coming year, which will then lead to a weakening of prices.
