Infiniti confirmed today that it will debut the 2012 M35 Hybrid at the 2010 LA Auto Show in November
“The M Hybrid, based on the popular Infiniti M sedan, promises V8 performance with 4-cylinder fuel economy ““ without compromising driving excitement or trunk space,” Nissan said in a statement. “It will be available at Infiniti retailers nationwide in spring 2011.”
Refresher: The Infiniti M35 Hybrid will be powered by a single electric-motor/twin-clutch arrangement, mated to a naturally aspirated 3.5L V6. The first-clutch is installed between the V6 engine and the electric motor, which Infiniti says allows for a more responsive drive. Infiniti said that the M35 Hybrid, which will carry a lithium-ion battery pack, has the ability to run solely on electric-power under certain driving conditions.
