At the 2012 New York Auto Show, the 2013 Nissan Altima received quite a bit of spotlight from the press and the public.

The 2013 Nissan Altima will be available with a 2.5-liter QR25 4-cylinder engine producing 182-hp and a peak torque of 180 lb-ft. Buyers can also opt for the 3.5-liter V6 VQ35DE, which keeps its 270-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. So what happened to the hybrid variant?

Check out our original post on the 2013 Nissan Altima.

Well, it’s been killed off for many reasons. First, sales of the Nissan Altima Hybrid were pretty sluggish. Second, the hybrid system in the previous model was provided by Toyota and Nissan executives were never really that comfortable with using their competitors parts.

Whatever the case may be, it’s very crucial for Nissan to offer a hybrid version of the new Altima since its competitors, Toyota, Ford, Hyundai and Kia all sell mid-sized hybrid sedans. Aware of that, Nissan is working on a hybrid powertrain that will make its way into the new Altima’s lineup within two-years.

Until that, the 4-cylinder Altima’s 38 mpg highway fuel-economy will have to do.
