Nissan 2013 GT-R Hybrid to bet big on more power, fuel efficiency

December 23, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Nissan’s upcoming offering, scheduled for a 2013 roll out, is expected to be a GT-R Hybrid. This could mean the new vehicle would come on top when it comes to fuel efficiency and power generation.

From what we get to know, the 2013 Nissan GT-R Hybrid will churn out 600 horsepower. Considering that it would be a lighter car, it would be easily 25-30mpg on the highway. Cool model, indeed.

Pumping out such huge amount of power, the car is expected to draw its extra power from the 160hp electric motor the car maker has incorporated into the vehicle. These details have in a way cemented the fact that Nissan is indeed almost ready with a hybrid-powered model. There have only been speculations earlier in this regard.

The new hybrid model is expected to use the current V6 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged engine, plus an electric motor for giving an additional option boosting performance.

Nissan, when it rolls out the model by 2013, is expected to attach a price tag of something around $100,000. This looks a bit on the higher side. But then, considering the car would greener compared to the peers, the price may not be a big issue.
