Future Hybrid Cars: the 2013 Edition

Infiniti Q50 Hybrid

The luxury sport-sedan is about to get a healthy charge from Infiniti with the new Q50 Hybrid. Aimed at taking on the recently introduced BMW ActiveHybrid3, the new Q50 Hybrid is a combination of brains and beauty. Underneath its sleek and stylish exterior is a mighty 3.5L V6, which is married to a 50 kW electric motor. Together they make a whopping 354 hp, enough to make people think twice about laughing at a hybrid badge.

Those engines are paired to a seven speed automatic transmission, and will be available in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations. Starting at $43,700 the Infiniti is about $2,000 cheaper than the BMW Activehybrid3 and still packed to the brim with impressive luxury technology.

    Pretty useless lineup of cars for the vast majority of us. There were a couple of interest, but for the most part . . . not.

  • I agree. The new Elio 3 wheel is going into production next year. 50mpg city 85 hwy with an inline 3cyl 1liter making 70hp gas motor priced at $6800. 0-60 9.5sec speed over 100mph. That’s the way I’ll go!
