Cerritos Infiniti Confirms, Infiniti M35h Sets Hybrid 1/4-Mile Guinness World Record

The 2012 Infiniti M35h Ripped Down a Rain-Drenched Raceway Setting the New World Record For a Hybrid


September 21, 2011 – Oxnard, Calif. – Oxnard Hyundai is proud to confirm, Infiniti M35h sets the new Guinness Book World Record for a hybrid vehicle.

On Tuesday, August 23, a lone 2012 Infiniti M35h ripped down the UK’s slick Santa Pod Raceway and sped into the record books as the world’s quickest hybrid vehicle.

"The Infiniti M35h proves that hybrids can be fast as well as economical, said Bill Stephens, General Manager.  It’s an amazing accomplishment for Infiniti to have a vehicle with a Guinness World Record.”

The test car, a standard production model, set the record on Tuesday 23 August 2011 at the UK’s Santa Pod Raceway, home of the FIA European Drag Racing Championships. From a standing start, the M35h harnessed its combination of electric motor torque from 0rpm and V6 power at high revs to impressive effect, the car passing the computerised timing equipment at the end of each run at speeds in excess of 160km/h (100mph).

    The record run, in the presence of an adjudicator from Guinness World Records®, was the idea of Infiniti’s Communications department to correspond with the start of sales of the innovative new hybrid. The point behind the exercise, which can be watched at, was to show that the M35h’s 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 5.5 seconds – itself the fastest time listed for a full hybrid – was just one facet of the car’s overall Inspired Performance. The standing 400m (quarter mile), an iconic acceleration test the world over, is a more demanding challenge than 0-100km/h and offers a more complete picture of a car’s acceleration.

Infiniti offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles, including the G Coupe, Sedan and Convertible, M sedan, EX and FX crossovers, and the QX full-size SUV.  For more information about Infiniti contact Cerritos Infiniti.
