The brand new Infiniti hybrid with improved fuel economy and lower emissions marks the automaker's first venture into the hybrid market.

Infiniti unveils its new M35h hybrid that improves fuel efficiency and lowers CO2 emissions. The new M35h will rely more on electric power rather than gas as engineers made enhancements to the vehicle’s electric motor accuracy. CO2 emissions have dropped from 162g/km to 159g/km, which in the UK, allows drivers to qualify for a lower tax rate, saving up to 40% per year. The 2012 M35h’s V6 hybrid engine also continues to lower fuel consumption, resulting in up to 32 miles per gallon.

In keeping with Infiniti’s focus on acceleration and power, the M35h holds the same prowess as the Infiniti M luxury sedan lineup that can go from standstill to 60 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds. Infiniti has also adapted its signature on-board amenities such as navigation system with voice recognition and on-board Zagat restaurant ratings. The luxury hybrid will roll out in the next months with a starting price of US$54,595.
