The 2009 Geneva motor Show has seen the Nissan luxury brand making waves all over Europe there are not signs that the Japanese automaker is slowing down.

It all started with the unwrapping of the stunning Infiniti Essence Concept, a 2-seater rear-wheel-drive coupe with a turbocharged V6 gasoline hybrid system generating 600hp to match its show-stealing sheet metal.

Then the bombshell was revealed: Infiniti intends to shift its entire lineup to the hybrid system beginning with the M sedan in September of 2010. There are also reports going around that a model derived from the Essence concept will be coming out next year in the European market. Further reports say that Infiniti will give up its gas-electric hybrid setup in the Essence in favor of the diesel-electric hybrid system. Although details about pricing have not yet been released for the model but Nissan said that customers willing to purchase a diesel hybrid would be in the luxury class. Of course, in theory, a diesel-electric setup would be more economical than its gasoline-electric counterpart. There are plans already by Nissan to open a V6 diesel powerplant in its European crossovers in 2010, this could point to the powerplant we can expect in the Essence version.
