Today, INFINITI Canada announced it will unveil its first hybrid performance luxury sedan at the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto this February. The 2012 INFINITI M35h is the first hybrid to demonstrate INFINITI’s Inspired Performance offering 360 horsepower and a manufacturer’s estimated 40-miles-per-gallon fuel economy, and will be in dealerships nationwide this spring.

“With industry-leading horsepower and fuel economy the M Hybrid raises the bar for luxury and performance in a hybrid, and we’re excited to make the Canadian debut in Toronto,” said Wendy Durward, Director, INFINITI Canada. “Driving a hybrid no longer requires compromise – with INFINITI you can have it all.”

The 2012 INFINITI M35h exhilarating driving performance also greatly benefits from use of INFINITI’s proven 3.5-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine, which paired with the 50 kW electric motor, provides a hybrid system net power of 360 horsepower. This vehicle can drive on electric power alone at speeds up to 100 km/h and can travel on electric propulsion for up to 1.9 kilometres. Tests have shown that in mixed diving, the INFINITI M35h is able to drive in electric only mode for as much as 50% of the time. And, with its compact hybrid system design, the new INFINITI M35h also delivers uncompromised interior space and competitive trunk space.

The INFINITI M Hybrid features the all-new INFINITI Direct Response Hybrid™ system, an advanced one-motor, two-clutch parallel hybrid design that combines precise, high-speed motor control technology, which, enabled by the powerful Lithium-ion battery, allows power to be delivered directly to the vehicle’s 7-speed automatic transmission. The system also utilizes an innovative Hybrid Electric Power Steering system and Electric Driven Intelligent Brake regenerative braking system, both which help conserve energy and provide a natural, enjoyable driving feel.

In addition to the M35h, INFINITI Canada will also have its complete lineup on display including the all-new 2011 INFINITI Performance Line G37 coupe, the G25 sedan and the rest of the popular G and M line-up. Consumers will also see the new INFINITI QX56, EX35, FX35 and FX50 – INFINITI’s family of luxury sport-utilities.


INFINITI offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles designed to inspire at every turn, including the G37 sports coupe, convertible and sedan, M37/56 luxury performance sedan, EX personal luxury crossover, FX premium crossover SUV and the QX full-size luxury SUV.
