Infinitiís 2012 M35h: 360 Horsepower and 30 MPG
Posted on February 10, 2012 in Automobiles:
While itís lovely to have prodigious power under your right foot, a sumptuous cabin to coddle you, and a 16-speaker audio system to amuse you, sometimes a carís most desirable amenity is the ability to forgo a visit to the gas station. Thatís the kind of luxury Infiniti aims to deliver with the 2012 M35h, the hybrid counterpart to the companyís sensuous new M37 and M56 sedans.
At the heart of the M35h lie a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a 50-kilowatt electric motor, which together produce a hefty 360 horsepower. And the powertrain merges the gasoline engineís 258 foot-pounds of torque with the electric motorís instantly available 199 foot-pounds. Thatís enough oomph to loft this sumptuous five-seater to 60 mph in less than six seconds.
