Infiniti Auto Line to Carry First Nissan-developed Hybrid Drive
Nissan Motor Co's proprietary hybrid system will be mounted mainly on its high-end Infiniti and other pricier rear-wheel-drive cars to make the gasoline-electric vehicles a profitable business, the automaker's R&D chief said on Sunday.
Japan's third-biggest carmaker has promised a hybrid car using its own technology by 2010, after introducing its first and only gasoline-electric car through the Altima sedan in the United States using rival Toyota Motor Corp's system.
"It's easier to absorb the cost of the system with more expensive cars," Executive Vice President Mitsuhiko Yamashita told Reuters in an interview at the North American International Auto Show.
