2012 Infiniti M35 hybrid to debut at the LA Auto Show

Infiniti is set to expand its hybrid efforts onto US soil, and has just announced that it will debut the 2012 Infiniti M35 Hybrid at the 2010 LA Auto Show at the end of the year.

The M35 Hybrid is basically just a rebadged Nissan Fuga hybrid, which is set to be launched in the following weeks on the Japanese market.

The new model is set to use a retuned version of the 3.5-liter VQ V6, running on the Atkinson cycle, combined with a 50 kW electric motor, running off a lithium ion battery pack. The motor will sit between the engine and the six-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2012 Infiniti M35 hybrid claims that it will offer V8 power with four-cylinder efficiency, so we’ll just have to wait until the 2010 LA Auto Show to find out if it can deliver.
