Nissan Will Build Altima Hybrid in Tennessee

Nissan, who wants to sell 50,000 units of its upcoming Altima hybrid in the year following its release, has decided which US plant will make the car (last time we posted about it they were still undecided): It will be in their Smyrna plant in Tennessee. "Nissan will invest $10.4 million for additional equipment and minor modifications to existing assembly lines at the plant in Smyrna," reports the Associated Press. Production will start in 2006, and the hybrid will be a 2007 model.
