Nissan to Produce Hybrid Altima in US with an Annual Max of 50,000

Nissan will begin producing the previously-announced hybrid version of the Altima (earlier post) sedan in the US in 2006, said Nissan President Carlos Ghosn during a new conference at NAIAS. Nissan will determine the annual output of Altima hybrids based on demand up to a maximum of 50,000 units per year.

That would indeed be a healthy launch.

Nissan is expected to assemble the hybrid Altima car in its Smyrna factory in Tennessee, where it currently manufactures the conventional model.

Its beginning to sound like 2006 is the year that hybrids really break out. I'm guessing at least 400,000 per year in unit sales for that year.
