Nissan U.S. announced the pricing of its new Pathfinder Hybrid, a fuel efficient version of the SUV that extends available model configurations to 14. The car is capable of delivering 25 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined, and starts from $35,110 USD.
The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is powered by a supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor paired to a compact Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. It makes 250 net horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque, which is the same sort of power you get from the 3.6 liter petrol engine (260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque), only the V6 model is considerably cheaper at $32,110 USD.
The battery pack for the hybrid system is fitted under the 3rd row seat so there is no compromise of passenger seating capacity or cargo space. The Pathfinder hybrid can be had with 2WD or selectable four-wheel-drive, and features an advanced, next-generation Xtronic CVT and regenerative braking.
Visually, save the LED taillights and some small badges, there is no way of telling this car is a hybrid. Inside the cabin, there is a 4.2-inch color monitor that shows power output readings from the electric motor and gas engine, along with how much power is being regenerated back into the battery.
