Nissan Announces Plan for 15 New Hybrids Over Four Years

Nissan gave a presentation today highlighting its progress toward eco-targets and highlighted a plan to add 15 hybrid models by 2016. 

“Thanks to environmentally friendly technology and new products, we are completely in line with our targets for the reduction of C02 in the usage of vehicles, ” Nissan COO Toshiyuki Shiga said.

The company also announced today that it will sell an EV under its Infiniti luxury brand.

Meanwhile, the push continues for the Nissan Leaf, which has found disappointing sales and consumer complaints since its 2010 introduction.

Maybe it makes sense then for the company to backpedal as Honda already did with its Fit EV. Instead, selling hybrids might prove to be a more successful endeavor, especially in the U.S. where those drivetrains are popular.

“We’ve introduced five cars globally, including the Altima in the U.S., which have top-level fuel efficiency,” Shiga said.
