Top 10 High-Tech Green Cars
2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid ($TBD)
The 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is a teched-out beast in the best way. In addition to its hybrid powertrain, which consists of a 3.5-liter V-6 engine paired with a 50-kW electric motor and battery pack, the Q50 Hybrid is also one of the first vehicles to come equipped with Infiniti’s new InTouch telematics system. Outfitted with dual touch-screen displays, the system offers smartphone connectivity for music streaming, hands-free calls and app syncing. The top touch screen gives users access to important apps, including navigation, while the bottom screen controls media, phone and other apps. Infiniti says the system will also incorporate gesture controls, though details are scarce for now. Safety features include Direct Adaptive Steering and Active Lane Control, which helps keep drivers from inadvertently veering.
