I just got my 2015 QX60 Hybrid two days ago. I've noticed that it seriously lacks any kind of power in reverse. I had to back up my street (slight incline) and into my driveway, and it seemed like the transmission wasn't even engaging, at first, or it took a while to decide between electric or gas power. I've had several vehicles over the past 30 years (but this is my first hybrid) and have never experienced this. Is this normal for a hybrid?

I believe it is normal. My hybrid does the exact same thing in reverse. It's like it's geared very very low. If yours has a problem then I must have it too.

I think I once read that our hybrids use only the ic engine in reverse. Hence, low torque and not much power on the low end if that's true.

There goes my badass stunt driving fantasies… not happening without the adequate power in reverse! ;)
