2011 Infiniti M35 Hybrid

Last Updated:

This is Nissan/Infiniti’s first own Hybrid system. (The Altima uses a Toyota system).

A while ago, there were rumors that the Hybrid version would use a smaller 2.5 Liter V6 to get better mileage.
I guess not…
The hybrid model uses a “big” 3.5 Liter V6. The electric motor adds 68hp.
Infiniti claims that the car can drive in full electric mode half of the time.
Not sure how that is possible, but it sounds pretty amazing.
More details soon. The car goes on sale in the spring.
And it still comes with the worse airbrushed looking wood finish inside.

  1. This looked so nice back in 2004. I thought it was the best looking car in its class back than. I know it has a better enigne and more features but the exterior is just so so I can't even say the word.

  2. th interior has become a little busy but that is the best looking wood trim i've ever seen. it has so much depth. beautiful

  3. What the heck is going through the heads of the Infiniti designers and the standard wheels of either the G or the M make these otherwise very capable cars look like a big yawn? Why do you have to upgrade to the bigger size wheels to look simply descent? It is a mystery to me, especially when the wheels are 50% of the look….

  4. This thing is hideous.

    Are you kidding? Watch out Mercedes? The E class will outsell this 3:1.

    This is a comical, bulbous, overwrought NISSAN with a ridiculous interior.

  5. This is perhaps the fugliest vehicle in the segment. Nissan has delivered yet another overwrought turd-mobile.
