New York Auto Show: Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently unveiled the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid during the 2013 New York Auto Show, in a world premiere.

Following its official announcement from just a few days ago, the brand new 2014 Nissan Pathfinder is being placed into the spotlights in an official way, with the carmaker pulling the wraps off its body, during the 2013 New York Auto Show. Nissan is getting closer and closer to its premium division these days and the Pathfinder Hybrid is actually powered by the same powertrain, in the same configuration, used on the Infiniti QX60 Hybrid, which was also unveiled in New York.

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is getting a 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine under its hood, helped by an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and a CVT. The total output produced stands at 250 BHP (186 kW) and 329 Nm of torque (243 lb-ft). The model has a combined fuel economy of 26 mpg (US), 24 percent better than the standard version. The new Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid will go on sale this summer and, just like its Infiniti cousin, it will be priced from 3,000 USD more than the regular model. Additional details on the Pathfinder Hybrid remain unknown for the moment.
