Has Nissan axed its Altima hybrid? It seems so.
The decision seems strange in a scene when the fuel prices are near all-time highs, right? However, the consumer interest the variant created has not been promising either. For instance, Nissan were able to sell only 35,000 Altima Hybrids since 2007 in US. Given the fact that the model was available only in seven states across US, was the sales percentage that bad?
So, there’s another reason why the fuel-efficient variant was killed. Let’s explain.
The car used Toyota hybrid technology, which will eventually be replaced by Nissan’s own hybrid system. It was debuted on the Infiniti M35h recently.
Reports coming from authentic sources indicate that the Infiniti’s system will soon spread to additional models.
