Nice QX60 price breakdown, we don't know what new features will be in the QX60 but it's possible the QX60 Hybrid FWD MSRP can crawl up to the $45 000 mark. Even at that price, it's still a great deal.i know that the QX60 Hybrid premium over non-hybrid QX60's will be about $3,000 on top of non-hybrid M.S.R.P.
Going off 2013 Infiniti JX pricing (aka QX60) here's what I have been able to come up with:
2013 Infiniti JX Pricing (QX60):
JX35 FWD: $41,250
JX35 AWD: $42,650
2014 Infiniti QX60 Pricing (speculated):
QX60 Hybrid FWD: $41,250 + $3,000 = $44,250
QX60 Hybrid AWD: $42,650 + $3,000 = $45,650
Yes good point, Hybrids wont recoup their initial premiums for ~ 10 years based on fuel efficiency and savings. So yes it is difficult if not impossible to actually see savings and recoup the additional QX60 hybrid premiums in a 3 year lease...No new features added to the hybrid. Will be identical to the gasser. All I've heard is $3k price delta. Lease rates may be a little different from the gasser, assuming there will be a slight difference in the residual value of the hybrid (currently there's a 1 or 2% difference between the has and hybrid Q50 for example).
In pure monetary terms, it is going to be difficult to recoup the cost difference in a lease, unless you drive a lot of miles. But some people factor in the green cache, the benefits of longer range, and other considerations.

A bit of an update on this subject. I wouldn't expect to see a sub $50K hybrid QX60 anytime soon. In fact, I'm guessing the first batch or two will mostly come in around $60K. It looks like all the initial builds are going to be loaded models. FYI, a loaded gasser comes in around $57-$58K. So that would put the hybrid at $60-$61K. I'm sure there will be exceptions, and I'm sure this will change, but we haven't been able to build/order any without lots of options so far. And cars we order right now are cars you won't see until January.
My other thought is that for the early arrival Hybrids, dealers are going to be commanding a price premium. So don't expect to be able to buy a hybrid with the sort of discounts off msrp that you're seeing right now on gassers. I doubt we'll see incentives from Infiniti for a while, as well. If you're holding out for a hybrid because you expect it to save you money on gas, you're going to be waiting a while before the prices get to the point where you can make it up in any reasonable (sub 5-6 year) time frame.
Nope. Your tranny is going to blow up. And Infiniti never ever stands behind its vehicles. They have the longest warranty in their class because they know the cars are terrible. /sarcasmDealer said Infiniti has fixed the problem which occurred on JX. Is it true? Thanks
I always find it funny when people call a transmission a "tranny"Nope. Your tranny is going to blow up. And Infiniti never ever stands behind its vehicles. They have the longest warranty in their class because they know the cars are terrible. /sarcasm
BTW, that's a smokin deal you got.
