Report: Nissan’s next-gen 370Z to have hybrid tech and Mercedes-Benz engines

Australia’s Motoring.com apparently heard that the next-generation Nissan 370Z is to feature a new hybrid powertrain featuring a Mercedes-Benz four-banger.

According to the report, the new model is to be called the Z35 generation and is going to be sold mainly in Japan and the United States. The hybrid version is supposedly going to utilize a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 2.0L turbocharged four in tandem with an electric motor for an output of around 207hp–the same system used on the Japanese Domestic Market Nissan Skyline 200GT-t, or Japans hybrid version of the Infiniti (now defunct G sedan) Q50. Topping the range would be a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 3.0L turbocharged V6 tuned to deliver more than 400bhp. That would replace the current 3.7L Nissan VQ-based V6 and is bound to make many Nissan fans upset.

Additionally, the new Z is said to come with a new targa and T-top version, paying homage to the original Z T-top convertible from the 1980s and 1990s.

A sales launch sometime in 2016 is predicted with a reveal in the form of a concept due at the Tokyo Motor Show next year.
