CleanMPG?s Car of the Year and you decide who wins!
This Hybrid vehicle is indeed a worthy competitor for the Green Car of the Year Award with a 34 mpg combined rating on the 08 EPA. That level of FE gives the Altima hybrid the title of most fuel efficient mid-sized sedan currently available in the US. Along with the FE, the Altima Hybrid?s emissions are rated AT-PZEV and it can achieve 60 mph in as little as 7.5 seconds. Unfortunately, the Altima Hybrid is sold only in the 9 clean-states of CA, CT, MA, ME, NJ, NY, OR, RI, and VT limiting its availability. Finally, its HSD like system was built under license from Toyota while Nissan promises to have its own internally designed hybrid system in just a few years.
