The Nissan 370Z Replacement is Shaping Up To Be a Hybrid Convertible in Europe and Japan
8 Décembre 2014 - Carbuzz
And it may be simply be called the "Z." There’s been increasing chatter going on lately regarding the upcoming Nissan 370Z replacement, which will likely simply be called Z.
For all markets, Nissan wants it to be smaller, lighter and cheaper than the 370Z. Overseas, namely Europe and Japan, a V6 isn’t a realistic choice due to differences in customer tastes as well as emissions regulations. So what will the Euro-Japan Z-car have under its hood?
A new report coming from Australian website Motoring is claiming Mercedes-Benz will supply a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to Nissan, who will then pair it up with an electric hybrid system. What’s more, Nissan will initially debut the Z as a convertible only, with a coupe to follow at some point.
