2012 Infiniti M35 Hybrid On The Way

M35hybrid1
Today, Infiniti confirmed that it will sell a hybrid version of its redesigned M sedan in 2011. The 2012 M35 Hybrid — that’s the official name — will feature a V-6 engine, twin-clutch transmission, electric motor and rear-wheel drive. The M35 Hybrid will also run solely on electric power “in certain driving conditions,” which most likely means at low speeds and under light acceleration.

Besides the fact that it will pack a lithium-ion battery, there isn’t any more available information — including the expected mileage gains — about the car. A few more images are below.

really nice car, but I see alot of Camry from the c pillar back- especially with those wheels. I think the Camry is a good looking car, but it is nothing special and not very upscale.

The new M is a nice car looking car as was the car it replaces. I can't wait to see the new one in real life. The non-hybrids will feature a more powerful V6 VQ 3.7L engine that will pump out 330hp and a V8 5.6L that will put out a healthy 400+ hp. The introduction of a hybrid sweetens the deal and, to me seems like the next logical step for Infiniti.

I agree with Broq. The back of the car does look a little Camryish, however the design as whole (IMHO) works and looks way more upscale than a Camry.

I see more ES350 than Camry, but...
