going for the top of the line trim..... an AWD Infiniti Q50 hybrid sport
looking at how the 2013 g37x awd price is a $39 000, does that mean we could see the Q50H sport AWD get close to $50 000?

usually there a premium on hybrid models, reason for my up to $10k price jump.

I would get the RWD Q50 Hybrid.

Can anyone think of what other RWD hybrids there are? I can't think of any.
at the moment the only other rear wheel drive hybrid I could think of is the M35h which the Q50 is pretty much based off of.

but... I could tell you that it will have a competitor coming and that will be Lexus' LF-LC which will have a 2+2 RWD hybrid platform.

There is actually a 3 Series Hybrid with 330 HP on sale now, which should be right equal with the Q50h since all BMWs are clearly underrated in HP.

You're right and the 3 series activehybrid line up has even more hybrid models to choose from, might be hard to infiniti to beat them in sales but at least the infiniti q50 hybrid has it's own niche and targets a niche that is scared of the ownership that comes with a BMW lol

I almost forgot that BMW had the Active hybrid line up in the 3 series going. I briefly read about it on road and track but never really got in to it. Did they start that just this year or?

Yeah I'm on the same boat. I mean we are hearing great things on the Q50 hybrid but unless we experience it ourselves you cant just depend on word of mouth. Why did you chose to go with the AWD instead of the RWD if you dont mind me asking?
I currently in Arizona, where having an RWD car is practical and ideal..

However, I might be moving to the east coast/central area in the next year or so, so I would prefer not to be driving around in a RWD if I'm anywhere near Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota, or some other state I might be moving to. :D

Even the AWD is still RWD most of the time. If money wasn't an issue I'd go for the AWD.
good point, starting off as a RWD vehicle, moving onto AWD it's going to be a RWD biased AWD setup.

My guess is that on average the power distribution will be 30% front and 70% rear. But at times who knows...maybe we can see up to 50% power to the front wheels.

What's your take on this?

I just don't want to get a RWD car and then end up moving to Michigan and having to struggle in anything more than 2" of snow on the ground. :(

I guess it'd just be a peace of mind thing...
I had my experience driving a RWD sports coupe in winter (yeaahh im crazy) with good winter tires and it wasn't much of an issue, even driving in severe snow storms i was fine, flying by cars very capable for winter weather.

Good tires and knowing how to handle a car in winter weather is key.

In this winter experience, where did were you driving? Was it in a large, urban city with freeways,...etc or was it a smaller town?
