Infiniti has introduced the 2014 QX60 Hybrid at the New York Auto Show.
Designed to appeal to eco-conscious buyers, the QX60 Hybrid has the same powertrain as the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid that debuted earlier today. As such, it is equipped with a supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and a continuously variable transmission. Infiniti estimates the model will have a combined output of 250 bhp (186 kW) and 243 lb-ft (329 Nm) of torque. This should enable the hybrid to average 26 mpg (US) - an improvement of 24 percent.
Despite the addition of the hybrid technology, Infiniti says there have been no adverse effects on cargo capacity as the lithium-ion battery is small enough to be located under the third-row seat.
The Infiniti QX60 Hybrid will go on sale this summer and cost approximately $3,000 more than the standard model.
