Altima Hybrid

If youíre a car lover and an environmental advocate, youíre probably looking for a way to justify your desire for a new vehicle in the face of environmental reports that have found that vehicles are one of the main causes of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in this country. Maybe youíre trying to walk to errands that are close to your house, and maybe youíve been trying to bike to work. But these are drastic changes to make to your life, and they can take time to implement fully. If you still need a way to have access to transportation while still reducing your impact on the environment, you might want to consider the Altima Hybrid.

These days it seems like every car manufacturer under the sun is looking for a way to carve out a niche in the hybrid market, and Nissan is no exception. Combining their talent for creating sleek, performance machines with their knowledge of the hybrid technology, Nissan is fast becoming a leader in creating efficient cars that people actually want to drive. Before you get too excited about the Altima Hybrid, however, itís important to point out that it is currently only available in eight states: California, Oregon, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

If you live in one of these eight states, youíre lucky. If you donít live in one of these eight states, itís alright to keep reading because chances are the Altima Hybrid will soon be available in your area, if not in new condition, then as a used vehicle from a private seller. If youíve been considering a Toyota hybrid for some time, itís important to point out that you wonít be sacrificing their efficient technology if you choose to go with this Nissan. The reason for that is that Nissan actually leased licensed Toyotaís hybrid technology to make the car, and then wrapped it up in its own stylish Altima packaging.

If youíve been reluctant to consider the Altima Hybrid as a real option for your driving needs because you want to avoid the stigma of gliding around silently in a slow but steady hybrid, you should know that this is one characteristic that Nissan did not carry over from Toyota. The Altima actually has a little fire under the hood, and although it is a little noisier, youíll be very happy to know that when you need to pass someone on the highway, it will actually respond when you step on the gas.
