Since the Q50 we saw at Detroit is getting the same engine as the G37, it 0-60 shouldn't be too far off from it.

The better question is what will the hybrid Q50 0-60 be. Electric motors offer tons of torque at any given time. If the regular Q50 has a 0-60 of 5.5 seconds (which it should - if anything quicker) the hybrid should see even quicker times.

The M35h has the same powtrain as the upcoming Q50 hybrid. Due to its lighter weight, I'd expect the Q50 to beat its big brother's 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds by at least .2. Maybe even .3 seconds. That would put it firmly ahead of the BMW 3 series hybrid.

Is the Q60h the exact same power train as the M35h?
I would expect it to be but we'll have to wait a bit before we find out for sure.

I think the same engine set up will be used on the new hybrid with some tweaks to it of course.

The hybrid is aiming for a 4.9s 0-62 but they're still tweaking it. It has achieved that speed already but the CO2 emissions were slightly above desired levels so more work on tuning to get it in that perfect sweet spot.

That's should mean 4.8 to 60 maybe even a 4.7 and 30 MPG take that 335i:D

Emissions are a huge factor as they need to keep it under a certain level in order that people will actually buy it over here, therefore i'm slightly jealous of the American taxing system that would suggest that you guys might get a more powerful version!

Why hybrid faster than petro model? Because Infiniti :D
If its anybody Im lad its infiniti than anyone else. Class and style bring performance to the greatest and for a greener future of course. This means less carbon monoxide and faster cars. I would say give it 10 years before all cars are hybrid and electric.

All true car critics will know that there is no better performance luxury hybrid in its class better than the Infiniti M35h. :D

If this Q50H can hit low 5.0s numbers, I don't see why it wouldn't sell like hotcakes.

I think those numbers are way off... The current G is already faster than that...

I agree... the current G37 is a 5.2-5.5 to 60 car depending on the driver, tranny, etc. The Q50 should be around the same. The hybrid should be in the high 4s, 4.8-4.9.
