The Altima hybrid was sold only in a few markets in the United States and has thrown for model year 2012. However, the hybrid model is expected to return in accordance with GreenCarReports.

The Altima Hybrid utilizes a suspended version of the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive system found in older Camry and hybrid Prius.

The new transmission and a hybrid system may be used in almost every engine in the Nissan line four-cylinder covering V6 engines. The hybrid system has a single electric motor between the engine and the CVT to help reduce energy consumption and hybrid EV mode only for a short time. Nissan’s hybrid system uses a lithium ion battery compact.

AutoWeek reports that the new CVT transmission should be able to improve fuel economy by 10% only compared to the higher transmission by reducing internal friction. The base engine in the hybrid powertrain is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine with a compressor. The compressor allows the engine offers similar power comparable to a V6 engine.
