Infiniti today announced a hybrid version of the QX60 (formerly JX [see name changes]) to join the Infiniti QX60 lineup in 2014. The 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid (or JX hybrid) will make its global debut at the upcoming New York International Auto Show from March 29th to April 7th.
The 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid will be powered by a 2.5-L supercharged engine and 15kW electric motor. Teaming with an advanced CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the vehicle delivers approximately 250 horsepower with projected estimated fuel economy of about 26 mpg – 24 percent improve over the non-hybrid QX60 models. The 26 mpg is projected to be the best mpg rate for a 7-passenger in the segment.
The battery that powers the electric motor is compact and is placed under the 3rd row seat in the way that allows the QX60 maintains its flat rear floor for easier passenger entry to the rear seats, and no impact to cargo space.
Offered in AWD or FWD configuration, the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid will go on sale in summer 2013 with a price around $3000 more than of the gasoline model.
