Infiniti has revealed a new, cheaper, version of the hybrid M35h – the Infiniti M35h GT – which starts at £41,101.
We love the idea of modern hybrid technology providing a useful power boost for more performance and better economy, but we don’t like the premium most car makers charge for their hybrid technology.
But Infiniti is different, and their hybrid M – the world’s fastest hybrid production car – comes at a very small premium over the equivalent diesel offering, and now it has an even cheaper entry point.
The Infiniti M35h GT joins the Infiniti M range at £41,101 – which is just £896 more than the M30d GT. Yet the M35h scoots to 62mph in 5.5 seconds (M30d 6.9 seconds) and has official economy of 40.9mpg (M30d 37.7mpg). Why would anyone buy the diesel?
The M35h GT costs £4k less than the only other hybrid M available until now m- the M35h GT Premium – and does come with a lesser spec, but it still gets the recent tweaks to the M35h which have resulted in emissions dropping below the important (for BIK) 160g/km level.
Despite the lower cost, the M35h GT still gets stuff like leather, heated and cooled fronts eats, bi-xenons, alloys and adaptive lights. You can now also have Connectiviti+ which offers Infiniti’s Nav/Entertainment system and their Forest Air Climate for £1800.
The new Infiniti M35h GT is now on sale.
