Nissan Fuga Hybrid Released

Japanese manufacturer Nissan announced today the market launch of the hybrid version of its new luxury sedan, the Fuga, with sales expected to begin on November 2. The model's price ranges from 5,775,000 yen to 6,300,000 yen, including consumption tax ($71,500 to $78,000).

The hybrid version of the Fuga is powered by a combination between the 3.5l VQ35HR V6 engine (306PS and 350 Nm) and an electric motor. The internal combustion engine of the car is linked directly to the 7-speed transmission through the two-clutch parallel hybrid system, eliminating the need for a torque converter.

The electric motor draws its power from a lithium-ion battery. According to Nissan, the hybrid on the Fuga can cope with high-speed driving, unlike many other hybrids which can be used in electric mode only at low speeds. The Fuga can run on electricity up to over 100km/h (60 mph). The fuel consumption rating of the car is estimated at 5.2l/100 km (45 mpg).

Being a luxury model, the vehicle comes with all the required technologies and gadgets which are required in its class. The Safety Shield Package brings all the safety features of the vehicle together, including Intelligent Control Assist, Intelligent Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Brake Assist/Emergency Brake Operated Pre-crash Front Seat Belts, Lane Departure Prevention and Warning and Vehicle Dynamic Control.

At the interior, the VIP Package offers power reclining rear seats, a built-in control switch in the rear center armrest, and an electrically operated rear window sunshade, while the Premium Interior Package adorns the car with semi-aniline leather with soft-to-the-touch and natural textures.
