2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid to Arrive in Canada Early 2007


The all-new 2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid, Nissan's first entry into the hybrid gasoline/electric vehicle segment will be arriving at Canadian Nissan dealerships in early 2007.

The new Altima Hybrid offers all the style, convenience, comfort, quality feel and performance technology features and highlights of the next-generation 2007 Altima - while offering the added benefits of enhanced fuel economy and reduced emissions.

The Altima Hybrid's powertrain mates the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) with an electric motor and generator that increases fuel economy while maintaining low tailpipe emissions. The Altima Hybrid's hybrid system is rated at a net power of 198 horsepower (148 kW), with fuel economy estimated at 5.6L per 100km City and 5.9L per 100km Highway.

Pricing will be set below $35,000 (CAN) with final details to be released in January.

Classified as an Advanced Technology-Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV), the new Altima Hybrid will be sold in early 2007 in Canada.

Passionate Driving That Takes Care of the Environment

Nissan's commitment to the environment takes a different form than might be found at other automakers. While Nissan strives to offer the most advanced fuel-saving technology available, the company also believes that drivers should not have to sacrifice any of the style or performance attributes that remain at the top of the reasons for buying a new Nissan.

For that reason, the Altima Hybrid is marked with the same expressive styling as its non-hybrid brethren - inside and out. The engine and suspension in the Altima Hybrid deliver the same spirited performance as its more conventional siblings.

The combination of passionate driving and passion for the environment is what makes the Altima Hybrid the standout in its segment.

Altima Hybrid Follows Nissan Tradition

Altima Hybrid is the latest in a long line of Nissan environmental automotive initiatives. Nissan was the first automaker to introduce a partial zero emission vehicle (PZEV) with its Sentra CA in 2000. In many areas of California the air leaving the Sentra's tailpipe is cleaner than the air going into the engine.

Nissan expanded its PZEV offerings to include Altima's 2.5-liter engine in 2005.

Nissan's Xtronic CVT, introduced originally in March 1992 in Japan, is now available to increase fuel efficiency in small, medium and large passenger vehicles. Nissan expects to produce 1 million CVTs annually by the end of fiscal year 2007.
