If you are not aware, hybrid technology is extremely expensive to develop and implement, that’s why some manufacturers are striking deals. A few years ago Nissan made a deal with Toyota to buy into their hybrid technology, which will allow them to produce their next hybrid vehicle, the 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid.
The ability for Nissan to ‘buy into’ the hybrid technology Toyota has already developed will save them countless dollars to develop the technology in house. The engine lurking under this hood will be a little less potent that your normal internal combustion Nissan engine, but couple with the electric motor should produce up to 198 horsepower. The Nissan Altima hybrid will be running on the 2.5 liter QR25 engine.
As you can tell from the 08 Altima picture above, there are no different styling cues that will separate the hybrid from the normal Altima. There will be some hybrid badges, but everything else will remain the same, just like the 07 Altimas.
