2011 Infiniti M will have new climate control tech

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Do you want to breathe in forest air while stuck in traffic at the middle of the city? Nissan found the latest in climate control technology and installed it on the new Infiniti M.

While enjoying a car ride, you can feel the air being blown in breezes to simulate nature. Best of all, you can choose from artificial aromas such as 'leaf' and 'wood' to blow at the occupants. At the Tokyo Motor Show, this feature made many viewers stand up and take notice.

The aim of the system is to keep the driver de-stressed. Reportedly, research into the effectiveness of the system consisted of making live brain scans while it was in use.

Infiniti has dubbed the system 'Forest Air' because it determined that most people rate forest air as the cleanest and most refreshing. What the system does is make the air more humid as well as ionize and filter it.

Traditional air-con systems tend to make the air too dry. The system is also able to detect 'bad' smells and when it does, it pushes the smell out of the car and blocks its entry.

Infiniti also went to exceptional lengths to improve the quality of the cabin materials. Infinite worked with Nagoya Institute of Technology to understand the way human finer tips sense materials.

The result is that the car has softer leather and plastic moldings that are much softer to the touch. Buyers can choose from the 2.5-litre and 3.7-litre V6s and a 3.5-litre V6 hooked up to Nissan's new twin-clutch parallel hybrid transmission. The Infiniti M goes on sale in the UK next year.
