Car & Driver has uncovered some new trademarks from Infiniti. The trademarks possibly deal with new powertrains for the G compact luxury car.

First is G35h. Car & Driver believes this could be a hybrid model after having a conversation with Ben Poore, Infiniti’s U.S. boss. They asked Poore if the M35h's powertrain setup could make its way to other models.

Poore said one could “imagine what that powertrain would be like in a smaller car,” adding that the electrically assisted 3.5-liter V-6 would make for a very quick G.

Trademark #2 is the G30t. Before, the t in Infiniti nomenclature stood for touring. Now, it could possibly mean a turbo engine joining. Where it possibly lands in the lineup is the question.

The final trademark is the G22d. The d as you might guess is for diesel. Currently, Infiniti sells a diesel M, FX, and EX in Europe. A diesel G would be a perfect addition. Also, a diesel could make its way into the states. The 22 could mean a 2.2L engine, possibly four-cylinder.

This would definitly put pressure on the other luxury makers to bring in diesels especially if they have a nice high MPG. :P

Just think of the SRX with the 2.8l Duramax in it. That would be a kiler ride.
