Unlike most compact and midsize premium sedans, the Q50 from Nissan’s luxury division comes across as surprisingly sporty. That’s also true for the hybrid version, which substitutes a gasoline/electric powertrain for a conventional gasoline engine. While delivering more frugal fuel economy, performance from the Q50 Hybrid is essentially on par with the regular Q50, which comes with either four-cylinder or twin-turbo V6 power.

What's New for 2017

Not much has changed for the 2017 model year. The climate control system gets a few updates, and a Bose 16-speaker audio system is now standard.


Choosing Your INFINITI Q50 Hybrid

In the hybrid system, a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine works in conjunction with a 50-kW electric motor, hooked to a lithium-ion battery pack. Combined system output is 360 horsepower. Operating with dual-clutch control, the gas V6 generates 302 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the electric motor is rated at 67 horsepower and 214 pound-feet. That’s sufficient to propel the Q50 Hybrid from zero to 60 mph in as little as 4.9 seconds, according to INFINITI. A seven-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode and downshift rev-matching sends that energy to the rear wheels or, optionally, to all four wheels.

Fuel economy is estimated at 27 mpg around town and 32 mpg on the highway (26/30 mpg with all-wheel drive). Many hybrid passenger cars yield better gas mileage, but few (if any) of those models come close to the Q50's performance potential. Premium-grade gasoline is required.

Direct Adaptive Steering, INFINITI’s steer-by-wire system, aims to provide better feedback from the pavement, and can be customized to your preferences.

All Q50 Hybrids now come in Premium trim, with rear-drive or all-wheel drive.



Starting at $48,705 (destination charge included), the Q50 Premium comes with a sizable group of advanced safety features: a rearview camera, blind spot warning, backup collision intervention, predictive forward collision warning with emergency braking, and an surround-view camera system with with moving object detection. Also standard are 19-inch alloy wheels, Direct Adaptive Steering, LED automatic headlights, LED foglamps, heated power mirrors, as sunroof, leather seats, eight-way power heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, electro-luminescent instruments, and maple wood trim.

Standard equipment also includes a power tilt/telescopic steering column, Bluetooth phone, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose 16-speaker surround-sound audio, HD and satellite radio, navigation, and SiriusXM Travel Link.


Premium AWD

Adds all-wheel drive, for an additional $2,000.

The available Technology package includes adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, and lane departure warning with steering assist.

CarsDirect Tip

Compared to the turbocharged four-cylinder engine available in the regular Q50, the Q50 Hybrid gets an extra 3 or 4 mpg in combined driving. You’re getting a V6, true, but paying a lot more for the hybrid powertrain. For an additional $1,700, the Technology package adds a valuable group of active safety systems.
