Infiniti Announces Hybrid 2014 QX 60

Automaker Infiniti has announced a new hybrid version of its 2014 QX60 premium crossover SUV. The vehicle will make its official debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. Infiniti says that it will be the most fuel-efficient seven-passenger luxury crossover on the market achieving 26 miles per gallon.

The hybrid vehicle will be available in front-wheel-drive or all wheel drive versions and will be on dealer showroom floors this summer. The vehicle uses a 2.5-liter supercharged engine combined with a 15 kW electric motor. Both of those motors are connected to a continuously variable transmission.

Infiniti has announced the official MSRP for the vehicle, but says it is expected to cost about $3000 more than non-hybrid models. With the power from the gasoline engine and the electric motor combined, the vehicle promises about 250 hp. Infiniti also uses regenerative braking to help keep the battery charged.
