Nissan has tried to get a head start by creating it’s own Nissan Hybrids. Over the past decade, there has been a major shift in the mainstream auto industry. Advancing technology and strengthening the global emphasis on prioritizing the reduction
of carbon emissions has contributed to a gradual yet significant shift away from fully
gas-powered cars toward hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
Nissan is a very well-known and reputable auto manufacturer and brand. This
multinational automaker company was founded in 1933 and is based in
Japan—although they distribute the cars they produce worldwide. Nissan vehicles are
high-performing, reliable, and diverse.
Currently, Nissan also reigns as the highest seller of electric cars among all major
automakers around the world. Nissan has devoted significant resources over the past
two-plus decades to develop their line-up of hybrid and all-electric vehicles. In fact,
Nissan released the first-ever globally-distributed all-electric car when they unveiled the
100% electric Nissan LEAF in 2010. A decade later, Nissan’s LEAF remains the
top-selling electric vehicle of all time.
Nissan’s current vehicle lineup includes multiple hybrid and all-electric vehicles. While going all-electric has a number of benefits, making the switch from fully gas-powered to all-electric is not a practical choice for every driver. Many drivers who want to save gas money and reduce their carbon footprint while prioritizing both eco-friendliness and convenience choose to drive a hybrid gas-electric vehicle instead.
Each Nissan hybrid vehicle is equipped with a parallel hybrid system that includes both a traditional gas-powered engine and an electric lithium-ion battery. If you are in the market for a hybrid car, keep reading to explore Nissan’s expansive and diverse selection of high-performing, reliable and efficient hybrid vehicles.

Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid
The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is a full-size SUV that is functional as well as eco-friendly
