Subaru Hybrid to Debut at NY Auto Show

The car will mark the first time Subaru has produced a hybrid vehicle. Subaru will sell its new hybrid vehicle in both the U.S. and Japan. While the production hybrid will be of the so-called “mild” variety, some industry-watchers think the new version will borrow at least a few elements from the Tourer Hybrid concept.

Nissan Leaf Nismo Set for Japan Release
Nissan’s Leaf will soon be getting a face-lift, if only for a special version that will only be available in Japan. The company’s storied Nismo racing division (Nis for Nissan, mo for motorsport) will be lending a bit of its look, but alas, none of its power, to an electric Leaf that is tuned by the Nismo engineers to deliver better aerodynamics. Nismo’s top executive, Shoichi Miyatani, revealed the plans at Tokyo’s recent Auto Salon event. So now, it is official; there will be a Nissan Leaf Nismo on sale in Japan sometime after June.
