The seven-passenger Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid and Infiniti QX60 Hybrid crossovers have been discontinued. Nissan’s consumer site says the Pathfinder Hybrid is no longer available, and the QX60 Hybrid can no longer be found at all on Infiniti’s website.
Power for the Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 hybrids came from a 230-hp, 243-lb-ft 2.5-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine mated to a 20-hp, 29-lb-ft electric motor. Total system output was rated 250 hp and 243 lb-ft. Available in front- or all-wheel-drive, power was sent to the wheels via a CVT. All-wheel-drive models featured an All-Mode 4x4i Dial to switch between 2WD, 4WD, and Auto Modes.
The Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 hybrids were EPA-rated 25-26/27-28/26 mpg city/highway/combined depending on variant, while the V-6-powered models were EPA-rated 19-21/26-27/22-23 mpg.
In our testing, the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid AWD reached 60 mph in 8.0 seconds and finished the quarter mile in 16.3 seconds at 85.4 mph. That performance matches a 2013 Infiniti JX35 AWD model we tested with the 265-hp 3.5-liter V-6. Both cars carried a $3,000 USD premium over their non-hybrid counterparts. Though Nissan doesn’t break out sales of the hybrid models, it’s possible consumers didn’t think the modest fuel economy gains were worth the extra cash.
