Nissan 370Z successor to be offered with hybrid engine

??????????????????????

More details have emerged on the Nissan 370Z’s successor after it was revealed last week that the new model could get a range of turbocharged four-cylinder engines on top of the regular V6.

According to a report out of Japan, the next-generation model could even sport a hybrid four-cylinder engine. On top of that, it will initially be launched as convertible with a targa top, with the coupe to follow.

The same source indicated that the 2.0-litre hybrid mill will be sourced from Mercedes-Benz and connected to a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Total power output from this setup was quoted to be 184kW (247bhp) and 350Nm of torque, while fuel economy is said to be 5L/100km – much lower than the current 3.7-litre V6 power petrol engine.

The next-generation model is also expected to be significantly cheaper than the car we have today.
