Infiniti announces MSRP on M hybrid


The new 2012 Infiniti M35h set to hit Canadian streets in late spring will carry a fully loaded MSRP of $67,300.

The luxury sedan’s design and hybrid technology was inspired by Infiniti’s Essence concept. The automaker says it is set to be a major competitor for the likes of Lexus’ hybrid sedan offerings.

“The M Hybrid offers V8 power and 4-cylinder fuel economy, so with Infiniti’s Inspired Performance you really can have it all,” said Wendy Durward, director, Infiniti Canada.

The one-motor, two-clutch parallel hybrid system in the Infiniti M35h is capable of driving in pure electric mode at speeds up to 100 km/h. Utilizing the Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid system, the 3.5-litre V6 engine, 50kW electric motor, connected to an electronic 7-speed automatic transmission, helps achieve estimated combined fuel economy of 6.9L/100 km
