Nissan Altima Hybrid discontinued for 2012 model year

Nissan Altima Hybrid

Nissan North America has dropped the Nissan Altima Hybrid for the 2012 model year, and has no plans on bringing it back. The Japanese automaker quietly dropped the Altima hybrid from its 2012 catalog after five years in the lineup.

Nissan spokesman John Schilling said that while the Infiniti M35 Hybrid will remain, there will be no other hybrid model at all from Nissan… well at least for 2012.

Why? Apparently, Nissan is concentrating its alternative vehicle marketing strategy and funding on the nationwide rollout of the Nissan LEAF.
