2011 Infiniti M35h Hybrid Details


The new hybrid Infiniti M35h is still a long time away from its market launch in Spring of 2011, but the company already released all the details of this super efficient sedan.

The M35h is supposed to be the driver’s hybrid with no compromise on dynamics and driving fun. Therefore it’s equipped with a 3.5-litre petrol V6 delivers 225 kW (306 PS), backed up by 350 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm. The electric motor is rated at 50 kW (68 PS) and provides high torque from zero rpm, peaking at 270 Nm at just 1000 rpm, ensuring dynamic performance from standstill.

The car can do 0-100 km/h in less than 5.9 seconds and has a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

The M35h can cruise on electric power alone at a constant 80 km/h on a level highway. Electric mode only can be utilised at speeds as high as 140 km/h on a trailing throttle. In slow-moving traffic the M35h can silently glide on electric propulsion for up to 2 km. Tests have shown that, in mixed diving, the M35h is able to drive in electric only mode for as much as 50% of the time.

The electronically-controlled transmission also enhances responsiveness for a sportier-feeling drive. Acceleration is seamless thanks to motor-assisted gear-shifting that ensures ratio changes aren’t just eye-blink fast but also completely smooth.

The bane of many hybrids – extra weight – is kept in check in the M35h by the lightweight batteries and features such as the single electric motor, replaced torque converter and innovative steering and braking systems, in addition to the strict weight-saving regime already integral to the M Line. It all helps keep the weight gain over the M37 down to about 120kg, the M35h tipping the scales at 1885kg.

A spacious five-seat interior sets a benchmark for quality and luxury even by Infiniti’s high standards. The M35h is available in both base and GT forms, the GT coming with features like sensuous aniline leather and hand-buffed silver powder-coated White Ash wood trim.

The M35h GT is also available in Premium form. Expected to be the most popular, the GT Premium comes as standard with an array of Infiniti’s most innovative and high-tech features. These include Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention and other systems comprising the Dynamic Safety Shield, along with a 16-speaker Bose® Premium Surround Sound system, Active Noise Control, Infiniti’s acclaimed Connectiviti+ information and entertainment platform comprising 30GB HDD navigation, and Forest AirTM, an innovative climate control system designed to promote alertness and relieve stress.
