Edmunds First Drive: Infiniti G35 Hybrid Prototype

Between 306 and 390 horsepower... Hahaha...

First Impressions:

Nissan believes that the time is finally here for a high-performance hybrid, and we're almost ready to be convinced.

it's nice to have a performance hybrid, but how bringing over the skyline 250gt and making that a hybrid.... I love the speed of my G, but I wouldn't mind having a slightly slower model also but with great gas milage...

There is a thread about this in the future models. I think they said a 2010 release. I don't think the premium of 4-5k is worth saving 3mpg, but if it is almost 390hp. That a whole different animal(worth it). I wonder now if all the 2009 g37 people will rethink rushing to buy the 2009.

Did any of you read the article? There is no plans for a G35 hybrid, the G35 is just being used to test the powertrain, it will be used in an all new vehicle, presummably an Infiniti (since its a RWD hybrid).

A G37 hybrid is merely speculation.

That would definitely make sense.

It's where the Accord Hybrid went wrong. People who wanted fuel economy weren't the same people who wanted power and were willing to pay the premium.

Although I liked the idea of a powerful hybrid that gets good fuel economy as well...... The cheaper 4cyl Accord got good fuel economy and sold much better.

I'm honestly surprised Infiniti hasn't come out with a base 2.5 liter model. Look at the Altima and IS250. The cheaper, base engine cars sell much better.

Unfortunately, doing so would likely raise the price of the G37.

Using current gas prices, it would take me 10-12 years to recoupe the price difference in gas savings.

People always seem to think hybrid motors can't be powerful. Automakers just don't make them that way is all. Seems Nissan wants to go another route . Electric motors can actually put out more torque than a gasoline engine. The structure of a hybrid engine is actually pretty interesting .
