Nissan has revealed a new hybrid version of its Pathfinder large SUV in New York, ahead of the regular model’s local debut later this year.

The Pathfinder Hybrid swaps the regular model’s 3.5 litre petrol V6 for a supercharged 2.5 litre four cylinder, paired with a single electric motor and lithium-ion battery system.

This electric motor is small by hybrid standards (producing just 15kW), but combines with the petrol engine to produce 187kW/329Nm.

These figures nearly match the 195kW/336Nm of the regular 3.5 litre unit, but consumes a claimed (US-data) 24 percent less fuel on the combined cycle.

Available in front or all-wheel drive, the Pathfinder Hybrid balanced petrol and electric power via a dual clutch system, before sending power to the wheels through a CVT auto.

The lithium-ion battery system is cleverly packaged beneath the second-row seating, maintaining easy access to the seven-seater’s third row.

Visually, the Pathfinder Hybrid is distinguished only by specific badges and LED taillights, while the interior gains a energy consumption display within the existing multimedia screen.

The Pathfinder Hybrid will be available in US showrooms from mid-year, carrying a price premium of about ten percent over the regular model’s US$28,650 (AU$27,432) starting price.



Speaking with TMR today, Nissan Australia's Peter Fadeyev said that it is too soon to say whether Australia will see the hybrid version of the new Pathfinder, due here in the third quarter of the year.

He added that drivetrain options are yet to be locked in for the local version, suggesting that a variant using the existing 3.0 litre turbodiesel V6 may also be on the cards.
