Toronto, Ontario - Infiniti unveiled its first hybrid luxury sedan at the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show Thursday: the 2012 Infiniti M35h. Designed to deliver performance with industry-leading horsepower and fuel economy, the all-new M Hybrid is set to be in dealerships nationwide this Spring.

“The 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid literally has it all – power, luxury and exceptional fuel efficiency – all wrapped in the seductive styling that our M lineup is so famous for,” said Wendy Durward, Director, Infiniti Canada. “Its ability to deliver the refined power of a V8 engine with the fuel efficiency of a 4-cylinder, makes this car another true example of the Inspired Performance that Infiniti strives to achieve.”

As the first hybrid to offer 360 Horsepower with over 6.1 litre/100 km (hwy), the all-new 2012 Infiniti M35h benefits from Infiniti’s proven 3.5-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine paired with the 50 kW electric motor.  It can drive on electric power alone at speeds up to 100 km/h and can travel on electric propulsion for up to 1.9 kilometres.

Infiniti Canada also announced pricing for the first vehicle to be welcomed into its new and exciting Infiniti Performance Line (IPL). Starting at just $57,200, the 2011 IPL G Coupe will also be available in dealers across the country this Spring.

The 2011 Infiniti IPL G Coupe is an aggressive expression of what we aim to deliver to the market – exceptional performance in a luxury vehicle,” said Durward. “The IPL series will take our already impressive line-up to another level, and we are confident that the auto enthusiasts will appreciate that.”
