Garage Preview: Could This Be the Next Ground Breaking Infiniti Hybrid?

According to the folks at Infiniti, this could perhaps be the most convention-defying compact luxury car ever designed. And the world’s fastest accelerating hybrid/electric vehicle, zooming from 0 to 60-mph in less than 6 seconds. Yes its an oxymoron to use the word speed and hybrid/electric vehicle in the same sentence. This  four-door coupé look goes hand-in-hand with five-door practicality. Just wondering will this upercharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine be fuel-efficient, too?

This potent yet highly efficient hybrid drivetrain is based around the innovative one electric motor/twin clutch system used in the Infiniti M.

With the UK a key market in Europe for luxury cars, this concept vehicle is expected to hit that country in the next two to three years. Could this concept vehicle make its way to North America too? We shall see.
