New 2012 Infiniti M35h Hybrid was rated at 29 mpg combined

The economy figures for Infiniti's all-new M35h were finally released to the public by the Environmental protection Agency, informing that the first-ever hybrid model of the Japanese brand provides an estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, returning 29 mpg on the combined cycle. For those who want to make a comparison with the other models of the range, we remind them that the M56 was rated at 16 mpg City and 25 mpg Highway, while the M37 returned 18 mpg City and 26 mpg Highway, the first model being powered by a 420HP 5.6-liter V8 and the latter by a 330HP 3.7-liter V6. A 3.5-liter 24-valve V6 engine which delivers 306HP and a 50 kW electric motor are paired by the M35h's drivetrain for a maximum output of 360HP. The power of the two engines, the gasoline V6 and the electric motor, is delivered to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission. The M35h can drive on electric power alone at speeds up to 62 mph for a distance of up to 1.2 miles at a time. Infiniti engineers boast that the luxury sedan is able to reach 62 mph from standstill in just 5.5 seconds en route to a maximum speed of 155 mph, or 250 km/h.
In the spring of 2012, the U.S. sales for the M35h will begin.
