being the smallest utility vehicle to come from Infiniti, aside from the Q30, it will sell well.
there's a demand for vehicles like this, just look how well the Lexus RX hyrbid sold.
the QX50 being in a segment under the RX is just proof of how attractive it will be

My only concern is that if they try to fit batteries somewhere in the car, the cargo space will diminish even more from what is barely there.
That is a valid concern. I think Infiniti is already aware of the lack of space so I'm sure they would have that in mind when creating the hybrid version. The batteries usually go in the back under the trunk right? Maybe they can cleverly find somewhere else to put them, but I guess all we can really do is wait and see.

Well if you look at Q50 vs Q50H cargo capacity does take a hit, Q50 has 352L of trunk space while Q50H drops to 247L. If QX50 gets a similar system we shoudl expect a similar 100L drop of cargo capacity or 3.5 cf. Not crazy, but an impact..

You can't really have your cake and eat it too. I think that the majority of people are willing to sacrifice some cargo space in order to have a hybrid vehicle. And if you aren't willing to make that sacrifice, then you can just go ahead and buy the regular gas-powered version.

I'm sure that batteries will continue to decrease in size as time goes on making this less and less of a problem.

I think that the roof carrier doesn't look very nice either. I also think that it is an invitation for people to try to steal things from you. If cargo space is your first priority, a hybrid vehicle might not be the best choice.
