The 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid has received its official EPA (Environment Protection Agency) fuel-economy rating prior to going on sale nationwide in Spring 2011. The 2012 Infiniti M35h officially averages 27/32 mpg (city/highway) with a combined fuel-economy rated at 29 mpg.
Prices for the 2012 Infiniti M35h Hybrid will be announced closer to launch date.
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. Official fuel-economy rating comes in at 27/32 mpg (city/highway).
