When the Infiniti QX60 Hybrid goes on-sale, what price can we expect it's FWD and AWD model to be priced at?

Should we be expecting a much higher price for the Hybrid model QX60 over the non-hybrid QX60?

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

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.

But 5 MPG's more over the 3.5 Liter V6 model for $3,000, is it worth it?

I thought the mpg for the QX60 was 25 highway? Is it 21 combined. Do you think the Hybrid will give you more than 26 mpg highway?

I am leasing this vehicle and I have some restrictions. So, i probably won't see the difference in the gas or hybrid as others who will be buying!

Is that the only special feature for the hybrid models. I wonder if they can use another source of kinetic energy like from the wheels somehow....

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.

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...

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.

Not only will the first batch come in at around $60k but chances are we can see dealers mark the price up on them just because they can.

I'd be surprised if we mark up the price. However, I do expect to be able to sell them much closer to MSRP than we are currently selling QX60's. So yes, the price delta will therefore be that much more.

I'd love to be able to get away with charging more than MSRP, but I have to agree with the customer viewpoint on this subject - doing so would not be a very friendly thing to do. You won't see my dealership do it - we could have done so with some of the early hybrid Q50's and we purposely did not.

Looking to get a 7 passenger SUV in the next 6 months, anyone know a salesperson in the central Florida area (Orlando, Melbourne, etc) that is very knowledgeable on the hybrid QX60 (or will be when it comes out)? I'm a car guy, so I'd like to deal with someone who can speak the language and answer some technical questions when they pop up.
Thanks.

Got a price 40250/46500

I really like the styling of the car. Got a deal of 40250 for MSRP 46500 of a Premium package. The only worry is CVT, which does not talk about a lot here. Dealer said Infiniti has fixed the problem which occurred on JX. Is it true? Thanks

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.

I'm driving my third Infiniti, and I have had exceptional service with my Infiniti dealership. When I took delivery of my QX60 on 12/28/13 and got it home, I noticed a broken stitch in the leather seat bottom on the passenger side. I was horribly disappointed. Took it right back to the dealer and was initially told that it had to be inspected by Infiniti before they would replace it. I was told I would have to leave it for a few days so the car would be on site when they came to inspect it. I got really upset and said I was not going to leave my car there, they could call me when the inspector got there and I would bring it there right away. Well, they immediately went and got someone who came and inspected it right there on the spot. The seat cover was ordered that day, and it looks great after the replacement. I have to say on my 2008 G35 I could bring anything to their attention, and it was immediately replaced. I had small cracks in the rubber around my sun roof, and no problem getting it replaced. Some of the door gaskets would pop out of place, they were all replaced. They would even walk around my car and if they would see minor scratches, they would have it buffed out. I have loved all my Infiniti's, and feel confident that they will be there for me if something goes wrong.

I always find it funny when people call a transmission a "tranny" :D
