Infiniti's recent announcement of its renaming scheme to all Q-prefixed models may still be confusing for some, but the first of the renamed crossovers, the 2014 QX60 (once known as the JX), should help straighten things out. It's coming to the New York Auto Show--as a hybrid.

Joining the QX80 (formerly known as the QX56) and the QX70 (a.k.a. the FX range), the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid promises 26 mpg combined city/highway averages in the familiar look and packaging of the JX crossover.

The QX60 Hybrid is the third hybrid model built or announced by Infiniti, joining the currently available M Hybrid and the future Q50 Hybrid sedan.

Power for the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid will come from a 2.5-liter supercharged engine and a 15-kW electric motor, with that power sent through a continuously variable transmission (CVT)--a system based on that found in the current M Hybrid. Net horsepower is rated at 250 hp. For a detailed look at the system, read Green Car Reports' analysis of a prototype from late last year.

A lithium-ion battery stores energy for the electric motor, which provides supplementary power through a clutched drive system. All-electric driving isn't included in this layout. Regenerative braking helps to recapture some kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost as heat.

Infiniti says the 2014 QX60 Hybrid loses no cargo room compared to the non-hybrid version thanks to location of the battery pack in the floor beneath the third-row seat.

Like other Infiniti crossovers, the QX60 Hybrid will also offer advanced safety technologies, including the Around View Monitor and Backup Collision Intervention.
