The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced that the Cima model has been reintroduced to its local auto market.

According to the car manufacturer, the new generation of the Nissan Cima is based on the long wheelbase version of the Infiniti M35h, which is only available in China, and the model is coming back to Japan after two years. The 2013 Nissan Cima is 150 mm (5.9 inches) longer than the long wheelbase Infiniti M and the model is providing enough leg room for the rear passengers. The new Cima is equipped with entertainment and comfort features like the heated and cooled power-reclining seats for a starting price of 7,350,000 Yen, which is translated into 69,000 USD.

The all-new Nissan Cima is using the same hybrid powertrain as the Infiniti M35h, which is made out of a 3.5 liter petrol burner and an electric motor, which are developing a total output of 359 horsepower. Nissan says that the top of the line version of the new generation Cima is going all the way up to 8,400,000 Yen or 78,000 USD. The Japanese car manufacturer is planning to sell 1,000 units of the new Cima generation on its local auto market annually.
