Nissan is being extremely secretive and is only revealing limited information about the new 2007 Altima Hybrid. The Altima Hybrid continues Nissan’s best-selling car’s performance tradition in a new variation â€“ a hybrid powertrain mates the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and Xtronicâ„¢ CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with an electric motor and generator that increases fuel economy while maintaining low tailpipe emissions. That is all the specs for now. Something I found of further interest in this article is the fact that Nissan plans to sell this car in only those states (8) which have adopted California emission regulations.
- New York
- Rhode Island
- New Jersey
Now we are left with only those other 42 states (including mine: Michigan) which should adopt stronger fuel emission laws. I am allowed to fantasize.
