When Infiniti unveiled the Essence Concept at the Geneva Motor Show they had announced that the concept would be a preview of the company’s future design language. And while the Infiniti M was the first one to speak that design language fluently, there are rumors stating that the next generation G is going to be the next one to feature the Essence language. The Infiniti G will be revealed in 2012 which is a pretty strange decision considering the G37 has just received a small facelift.
Another rumor flying around the next G is that it will be powered by the same 3.5-liter hybrid combination from the current Infiniti M35 that develops around 360 HP. That is, if it doesn’t follow the concept closely enough to borrow its 592 hp petrol-electric hybrid engine. Of course, taking the new Renault-Nissan-Daimler alliance into consideration, a diesel hybrid is also a possibility.
