When the new Infiniti M gets Nissan's new in-house developed hybrid system next year, it will be just the first of a full line of hybrids from the brand. At the Geneva Motor Show last week, Francois Bancon told AutoCar that the entire line will have hybrid power within a decade. With parent Nissan making a major move into electric vehicles, the premium outlet may be using the hybrid approach in order to reduce fuel consumption without sacrificing the performance image it has built up.
The new Infiniti hybrid system was shown in the new Essence concept in Geneva. A redesigned conventional M will debut in the U.S. this fall.
