It's time to pull out your magic decoder rings as Infiniti has announced plans to introduce the QX60 Hybrid at the New York Auto Show.

Essentially a renamed JX crossover, the model features a supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and a continuously variable transmission. This should enable the QX60 Hybrid to have an output of roughly 250 bhp (186 kW). More importantly, the crossover's combined fuel economy rating is expected to increase to 26 mpg (US) which is projected to make it the most fuel-efficient seven-passenger crossover in its class.

Despite the addition of the hybrid technology, Infiniti says there will be "absolutely no compromise of performance, interior roominess or cargo space."

The model is expected to cost $3,000 more than a conventionally-powered QX60 so expect a base price of roughly $44,250.
