2012 Infiniti M35h

2012 Infiniti M35h

As the first hybrid vehicle ever to carry the mantle of Infiniti's Inspired Performance, the new 2012 Infiniti M35 Hybrid, which goes on sale at Infiniti retailers nationwide in spring 2011, is about to change everything luxury sedan buyers have ever thought about hybrids, including the word "compromise."

The M35 Hybrid Delivers V8 Performance With 4-Cylinder Fuel Economy

(continued from above)

The Infiniti M35h is a vehicle that first and foremost delivers the exhilarating and refined power of a V8, with the fuel efficiency of a 4-cylinder engine. Combined fuel economy of 27 mpg (estimated) is expected to be the best in class. And one other thing, with its compact Lithium-ion battery, the new Infiniti M35h also delivers an uncompromised interior and competitive trunk space.

The top line message on the new Infiniti M35 Hybrid, the first true performance luxury hybrid sedan, is pretty easy to understand - cleaner, greener and faster. With its high power output, Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid system technology and strong rear-wheel drive driving feel, it's a true "driver's hybrid."

Key to the M35h's inspired - and green - performance is an innovative yet elegantly simple gasoline/electric drivetrain, which ensures that zero-emissions electric propulsion is used more often, for longer periods and at higher speeds than in typical hybrids.

The Infiniti M35h can drive on electric power alone at speeds up to 62 mph. It can travel on electric propulsion for up to 1.2 miles at a time. Tests have shown that in mixed diving, the Infiniti M35h is able to drive in electric only mode for as much as 50% of the time.

The 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 combines with an electric motor and high-power battery to produce 360 horsepower (hybrid system net power). The M35h deploys its power in a manner entirely in keeping with Infiniti's sports handling philosophy Infiniti owners have come to expect. Both the gasoline V6 and electric motor deliver their power to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior Design: Pure Infiniti M

Like the gasoline engine-equipped Infiniti M37, the new Infiniti M Hybrid features an elegant yet sporty exterior and interior design. The exterior design is multi-layered, just like the body surface itself, which was conceived to mirror reflections from different angles to create a sense of mystery and allure.

Its balanced, rear-wheel drive proportions and stance, with a long, low hood and high rear deck, provides a roomy cabin, uncompromised by the M Hybrid's compact battery design (located behind the rear seat).

The deep body shape of the fenders and doors give the M sedan a powerful look unlike anything on the road. The wave-style doors are constructed from aluminum for light weight, despite the material's difficult formability. Other exterior features include an expressive, signature Infiniti double-arch upright low grille and crystal-look headlight clusters, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and a wave-like trunk with a high aerodynamic performance that works like a spoiler to increase downforce.
