Auto Show in New York Featured Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

Posted by admin | 04.05.13

nissanAn Auto show was recently held in New York. A lot of green vehicles were present in the show. But very few of the latest production models actually qualified to be green. One of them was the new pathfinder hybrid model from Nissan. This pathfinder is a seven-seated crossover model. This large and comfortable crossover makes it a highly preferred choice of many families.

The Pathfinder consists of an electric motor of 15KW which is packed between the Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) of the company and the supercharged four-cylinder engine of 2.5 liter. This combined system yields a power output equal to 250hp. It is less than 10hp as compared to the 3.5 liter V-6 that has been incorporated into their non-hybrid pathfinder.

This Pathfinder Hybrid by Nissan gives competition to the Highlander Hybrid by Toyota. There has been a tough completion between the two. While Nissan’s hybrid transport offers seven-seated crossover, the Highlander provides only electric acceleration, travel under light loads & at lower speeds. Results are awaited as to find out which of them will get more preference. Nissan also launched its largest hybrid vehicle at this Auto show in New York.

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder is ready to hit the market this fall.
