With the aim to taking on the intense competition from rivals Toyota and Honda for fuel efficiency, Nissan plans to launch a new hybrid car in the market to ensure better fuel economy.

The company plans to enhance the mileage as compared to gasoline engines on its most recent mass-market hybrid vehicle, Infiniti M sedan, the gasoline-electric vehicle and it is expected to be released later this year. Nissan entered the hybrid car market late with mass-release hybrid vehicles. Sales of Nissan Altima Hybrid were largely limited to the handful of states. Now the company wants to make up for the delay and will release two-clutch system that would keep costs down for better fuel economy unlike Toyota’s two-motor systems.

Under the new system the second clutch separates the electric motor from the engine. This enables users to drive on electric power only while the battery is charged the Nissan’s hybrid system will use a lithium-ion battery Also, instead of a nickel-metal hydride battery, to capture faster discharge of energy.
