Ask It: 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid

Reviews I By Brandon Turkus I July 05, 2011
The 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid has just arrived in our parking lot. Packing a 3.5-liter V-6, an electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery, the M Hybrid packs a total of 360 horsepower, with 258 pound-feet of torque from the engine and 199 pound-feet from the electric motor. Highway travelers will see an impressive 32 miles per gallon, with 27 miles per gallon showing up in the city.
Distributing power to the rear wheels is a seven-speed automatic transmission, which includes a manual shift mode. Also aiding performance and economy is Infiniti’s Drive Mode Selector. This knob allows the driver to select between Snow mode, Eco mode, Normal, and Sport mode based on the current conditions.
In terms of luxury items, our M is packing the Deluxe Touring package and the Premium package. That means we get Infiniti’s brilliant Forest Air system, White Ash wood trim with silver powder accents, an eight-inch touch-screen navigation system with a 9.3-gigabyte hard drive, and a Bose premium stereo, on top of other options.
The base price for our M Hybrid is $53,700, and with options it comes out to $61,745. We’ll be testing the M for the next week, so feel free to leave your questions below, and we’ll answer them to the best of our ability.
