    Nissan Shows Their New 2.5L Supercharged Hybrid System

    Back in October, we reported that Nissan was working on a new hybrid system that would use a supercharged motor to be used in the next Altima. Today, Nissan is showed off their new supercharged hybrid powertrain.

    The system uses a 2.5L supercharged four-cylinder engine and a compact lithium-ion battery pack. Nissan engineers told Autoblog the hybrid powertrain can match the output of Nissan’s current 3.6L V6 (260 HP and 250 lb-ft of torque) while returning a 10% increase in fuel economy over the 2011 Altima Hybrid when equipped with the CVT.

    • 2011 Nissan Altima Hybrid: 33 City/33 Highway MPG
    • 2013 Nissan Altima Hybrid (Est): 36.3/City/36.3 Highway MPG

    Engineers also claim the hybrid powetrain’s torque curve is the same as the V6 and so is the power delivery. Nissan says the powertrain will arrive in 2013, most likely in the new Altima.

    Not that it makes too much of a difference, but the current V6 is a 3.5L, rated at 270hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It amazes me how many typos are in these articles.

    Doh... I was probably thinking of something else when I was writing this. It's been fixed now.
