Ask any gathering of Q70 owners what they like best about their car and most will point to its overall athleticism and tastefully restrained styling, two things you don't always find in a midsize luxury sedan. The Q70 Hybrid retains those qualities and adds something else you might like: class-leading efficiency.

Choosing Your INFINITI Q70 Hybrid
The Q70 Hybrid is powered by 3.5-liter V6 engine and a 50-kilowatt electric motor that together produce 360 horsepower. With that kind of output, you needn't worry about performance in this hybrid. Zero to 60 mph happens in 5.5 seconds, which is actually faster than gasoline V6 Q70 and within a few tenths of a second of the V8 model. Of course, the main benefit of the hybrid setup is its 31 mpg in combined driving, an exceptional figure for a luxury sedan of this ability.
The standard seven-speed automatic transmission offers four different shift modes: Standard, Sport, Snow and Eco. Although other Q70s can be outfitted with all-wheel drive, the Hybrid is rear-drive only. The lithium-ion battery pack is mounted near the trunk, so expect a slight reduction in cargo space.
The Q70 Hybrid gets a few hybrid-specific features like special instrumentation and shock absorbers. Otherwise, it's equipped very much like the gas models with a leather and wood interior, heated power front seats with driver memory, a sunroof, a power soft-close trunk lid, keyless ignition, automatic bi-xenon headlamps and 18-inch alloy wheels. Tech features include a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and satellite radio.
