Featuring the unique combination of Nissan\'s four-cylinder gasoline engine and new hybrid system components supplied by Toyota Motor Corporation, the Altima Hybrid is a new generation hybrid vehicle, which achieves the acceleration performance of V6 engines with fuel efficiency higher than compact cars.

Hi Jason:

___I donít know where you picked that one up as it wasnít on my radar screen? I knew Nissan licensed Toyotaís first gen HSD (I believe it was the first generation?) a few months back but I didnít realize they had something in the works for release this quickly?

___Thanks for the link.

I actually was notified by Google News, though. Set up an alert for "-rice hybrid". It appears there's a lot of news talking about hybrid rice. Like I care!

Wayne,
Nissan licenced use of the THS (Toyota Hybrid System) I believe; it is the same system that apears in the Escape Hybrid and the Prius Gen I.

Jason,
I think I'll just shoot myself the first time I see a hybrid with a fart cannon hooked onto the back. I know that there is a time and a place for fart cannons, but hybrids just arent one of the yet.
