Hybrid Version of Nissan Altima to be Made in USA


After Toyota's announcement about the hybrid Camry, here comes Nissan: "Nissan Motor Co. said it would build gasoline-electric Altima sedans at a U.S. plant starting in late 2006, becoming the second Japanese carmaker to produce hybrid vehicles in the world's largest auto market. [...] The hybrid will be a 2007 model." Because of a partnership, part of the hybrid technology in the Altima will come from Toyota (the gas engine will come from Nissan, though). And there's more to come in the hybrid world because Ford is also expected to make hybrid versions of its Fusion and Milan midsize sedans by 2007.
