Infiniti has announced performance and emissions figures of the M35h, the company’s first hybrid model.
The 3.5-litre V6 petrol unit combined with a 67bhp electric motor produces 359bhp and gives the Infiniti M35h a 0-60mph sprint time of 5.5 seconds and top speed of 155mph.
The firm claims a combined fuel consumption figure of 40.4mpg and emissions of 162g/km of CO2, thanks to its electric motor that can power the Infiniti M35h "more often, at higher speeds and for longer periods than rival hybrids", according to the firm.
The M35h tips the scales at 1830kg, making it lighter than its M30d diesel sibling and features hybrid electric power steering and regenerative braking, as well as the standard M’s luxury features.
Available in either GT or GT Premium trim levels, prices for the M35h will be announced before the Geneva motor show in March.Read more about the Infiniti M35h
