Nissan Hybrid Car Models

October 31, 2012

When it comes to achieving good gas mileage, Nissan hybrid cars rank amongst the best. Nissan offers hybrid car models in a few different options to satisfy tastes of a wide range while maintaining good fuel economy. If you are interested in purchasing a Nissan with great gas mileage, these are some of the top Nissan models you will want to consider:

Nissan Altima:

The Nissan Altima is made available in a hybrid trim that boasts a 158 horsepower 2.5-Liter 4 cylinder engine with a 40 horsepower electric motor to give you just the power you need while delivering 35 MPG. This car is also an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) that means the hybrid Altima is cleaner than 90 percent of new model year vehicles. With the Altima hybrid you can also cruise quite a distance without worrying about filling up, as the vehicle can cruise up to 600 miles on a single tank. The Nissan Altima hybrid, unlike many other hybrids, also has a 15 year/150,000-mile warranty on emissions equipment to back it.

Nissan Tino:

The Tino hybrid was made available in Japan to 100 customers and, although is not readily available vehicle to purchase, boasts a 100 horsepower gas engine with two electric motors, a lithium-ion battery pack, and regenerative braking features that allow it to achieve green status; only the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight beat the Nissan Tino hybrid to the market.

Although Nissan does not technically have any other hybrid cars readily available, the Nissan Sentra and Nissan 350z also obtain respectable emissions records. The Sentra was certified to the California Air Resources Board Partial Zero Evaporative Emissions (PZEV) standard while the 350z was certified as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV).

Although Nissan may technically offer only one hybrid model in the Altima hybrid, they also offer other fuel-efficient models that make it a reputable company when it comes to fuel economy.
