Nissan Altima Hybrid Euthanized for 2012 - Car and Driver (blog)

Nissan will discontinue its Altima hybrid model after 2011 and instead focus on “four- and six-cylinder models for model year 2012, which make up the large majority of sales for the [Altima],” according to a company spokesman. The Altima hybrid arrived in 2007 using hybrid technology licensed from Toyota. While mid-size hybrids like the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion have been well received in the marketplace, the gas-electric Altima has seen fewer takers for a variety of reasons, not least of which is its availability in only a handful of states.
