Infiniti M35 Hybrid

The Infiniti M35 Hybrid rolled off the lines with a bang, making an impressive appearance at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, subsequent to making its appearance in Europe at the Geneva Motor Show, in Switzerland. Since becoming available to the public as the 2012 Infiniti M35 Hybrid, it has gained a reputation as one of the cleanest hybrids currently available. The Infiniti M35 Hybrid was first available for purchase in the United States in spring of 2011.

While it doesnít differ much in appearance from the other cars in Infinitiís M-class, the Infiniti M35 Hybrid is powered by a hybrid naturally aspirated engine of electric and gasoline. The 3.5-liter V6 will provide some giddyup, with 360 horsepower, while ensuring that the driverís wallet stays fat. A combined 29 MPG is pretty good, donít you think? However, with a starting MSRP of $54,595, a fat wallet may be hard to maintain.

Solely running on electric power, the M35 Hybridís lithium-ion battery allows it to travel up to 1.2 miles, going 62 MPH. The 7-speed automatic transmission has been noted to be somewhat lacking, however when you consider all the benefits this hybrid has to offer, that seems like a small price to pay.

When compared to the competition, the Infiniti M35 Hybrid certainly seems to have the upper hand. It is over $5,000 cheaper than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 and has far more power and better fuel economy than either the ActiveHybrid 5 or the Lexus GS 450 Hybrid. In fact, the M35 Hybrid is the only hybrid that has over 350 ponies under the hood, and is still able to obtain 30 MPG highway.
