The Future of Hybrid Performance from Nissan
Nissan has proven, again and again, their incredible efforts to lower emissions from all of their vehicles. Not only has the all-electric Leaf been a forerunner in EV technology, Nissan continues to developed advanced hybrid technology for other vehicles.
Rumor has it that the supercharged 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder hybrid power plant from Nissan will likely debut in next-gen variants of the popular Altima or the Maxima. Mated with a CVT transmission, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery, it seems Nissan is aiming towards a system "that is equal parts performance and fuel economy."1
The supercharged engine is an interesting choice, as they provide more baseline power than a turbocharged engine, they still have to get up to higher RPMs to pump out the most power. But early reviews on this idea seem to come to the common conclusion that "this system should deliver huge amounts of low end torque that would make even hybrid haters grin."2
That's right, a hybrid designed with the power-hungry in mind. Hard to imagine, isn't it? Well, not really, when you consider Nissan's impressive lineup of powerful and fuel-efficient new vehicles.
