Next Infiniti G Coupe will go hybrid and share design with Essence Concept

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

A Nissan insider shares that the next Skyline coupe (Infiniti G37) will have a significant number of styling features that are similar to the Essence Concept.

The coupe, which is expected to arrive in 2012 at the earliest, will have elements from the Essence concept that debuted at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The company has said earlier that its Essence model will be indicative of the brand's future design direction.

In fact, some features of the Essence are visible in Infiniti's revamped M sedan lineup. The next G coupe measures about 186 x 77 x 52 inches and it sits on a 110-inch long wheelbase.

These dimensions are believed to be more practical for the real world than had been first thought. Nissan is expected to soon launch its Leaf electric car, which fits the next G coupe with a hybrid powertrain option.

The source said that the Leaf is likely to receive a version of the 3.5-liter hybrid combination from the current Fuga (Infiniti M35) that delivers 360 total horsepower.

Since Renault-Nissan has partnered with Daimler, there are expectations that they will work on a diesel hybrid that will further improve mileage and lower emissions. However, this diesel hybrid will likely be offered to markets outside of the US.[via motortrend]
