Infiniti launches its next-generation hybrid system with the M35h, a luxury sedan that gets excellent mileage without sacrificing power.
For years, Nissan said it was developing its own hybrid drive system, which now sees the light of day in the Infiniti M sedan. This hybrid system uses lithium ion batteries to propel the car under electric power at speeds of even 65 mph.
Infiniti has evolved a refined design language over the years, with gracefully curving fenders and a hood that drops between them. The rear has almost a fastback look, setting the M35h apart from other sedans.
The small gauge to the lower left is the main indication on the instrument cluster that this car is a hybrid. The driver can also call up a screen on the center display that shows power distribution from the hybrid system.
