Vehicle Overview

The Altima Hybrid is Nissan's first gas/electric hybrid, using technology borrowed from Toyota. It is currently sold in 11 states, including California, New York, New Jersey, much of New England and Oregon. Nissan has announced that future hybrids will use Nissan-designed hybrid technology and be available nationwide.

The Altima Hybrid is available in one trim level and competes with other midsize hybrids like the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Under the Hood

The four-cylinder gasoline engine shuts off when the vehicle comes to a stop to save gas. The electric motor provides some acceleration at low speeds; the gasoline engine kicks in when accelerating hard or for highway travel. The air-conditioning compressor is electric (rather than belt-driven) to save gas. This also means the air conditioner can blow in cold air even with the engine turned off. The Altima Hybrid achieves an estimated 35/33 mpg city/highway. Mechanical features include:

  • 158-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 162 pounds-feet of torque
  • 40-hp, 650-volt electric motor with 199 pounds-feet of torque
  • Continuously variable automatic transmission
  • Standard push-button start


Safety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Active front head restraints
  • Antilock brakes
