The Infiniti M hybrid saloon that sets a new benchmark in power and efficiency will cost £46,840 when right-hand drive versions arrive in UK Infiniti Centres from April 2011.
In its technology, performance, luxury and standard equipment, the single Infiniti M35h GT Premium model available in the UK is every inch Infiniti's flagship saloon, as well as being the most powerful and most economical model in the new Infiniti M range. Over an equivalently specified M30d, the hybrid costs just £1200 more.
As the brand's advanced technology showcase, the Infiniti M35h features a raft of cutting-edge engineering. At its heart is the Infiniti Direct Hybrid system, a new-generation drivetrain whose one electric motor/two clutch layout delivers performance and efficiency without compromises while enhancing the responsiveness essential for maximum driver appeal.
In addition the Infiniti M35h is equipped with innovative new hybrid electric power steering and regenerative braking, a hybrid dashboard display showing energy flows and a low-speed audible warning system (VSP) to help ensure the safety of pedestrians and other road users.
The 364 PS (359bhp) petrol/electric four-door's combination of power and low emissions is unmatched in the sector by any petrol, diesel or hybrid rival. The Infiniti M35h delivers 0-62mph acceleration in just 5.5 seconds with an official EUDC fuel consumption on the combined cycle of 40.4mpg. CO2 emissions are 162g/km.
The Infiniti M35h joins the V6 petrol Infiniti M37 and V6 diesel Infiniti M30d to form a unique three-pronged attack on the European executive car segment. Prices of the entire Infiniti M range represent impressive value compared to equivalently powerful rivals when equipped to a comparable level.
