Japanese auto giant Nissan will launch as many as 15 hybrid powertrains by 2016. The strategy seems to be in line with Toyota’s approach to go for hybrid versions.
The Nissan Resonance concept will go into quite a few production vehicles. Andy Palmer, Nissan executive vice president, confirmed that the hybrid power train will be used in the Altima sedan, the next-generation Murano crossover, and the Pathfinder crossover.
The hybrid drive train consists of a 2.5-liter inline-four engine, two clutches, a continuously variable transmission, and an electric motor-generator.
As of now, no such vehicle offers such hybrid setups. The company seems to be obsessive about making such electric cars, in which the energy made out of gas-electric hybrid will never contrast environmental friendly methods of a wholly electric vehicle.
Along with hybrid power trains, several elements of car designing concepts including the deep-V front grille and the floating roof will be used on other Nissan models also to help in improving the family resemblance of several models.
