While the news this week will be dominated by the goings-on in Paris, Nissan is getting ready to make a spash of its own exactly one week from today.

At the Orange County Auto Show, Nissan will officially pull the wraps off the 2007 Altima Hybrid. The car is the first gasoline-electric hybrid for the automaker, and it will be greeted in the marketplace by competitors from Toyota (whose hybrid technology it uses), Honda and GM.

If you live outside of California or the Northeastern United States, you're going to be out of luck if you want one, as Nissan is only offering the car for sale in these 8 states: California, New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The car will be built at Nissan's Smyrna, TN manufacturing facility.

We'll bring you full details on the Altima Hybrid when Nissan releases them next week. AutoblogGreen will also be following the story closely.

      I look forward to seeing it. Does anyone know any specs on it - Nissan does well with the performance angle so I'm hoping that will carry over into the Hybrid.

      i would take one of this before i'd take a Camry but Nissan will not bring them to market here in Michigan, so!!!

      Hopefully with all these new hybrids the price for a hybrid car will go down.

      I think white is better than silver.
      I think green is better than white.
      I think I will buy green.

      I think the Altima is better than the Fusion.
      I think the Fusion is better than the Tempo.
      I think I will buy an Altima.

      #3 get help

      I think the design of the altima is not bad. I like the amber lights

      Camry hybrids are selling for $5000 above sticker in L.A. I too hope this helps equalize some of the supple and demand problem.

      Rather than amber, Nissan should have gone for the "smoked" look. How much trunk space did the Altima lose by rounding its boot.

      I just saw a masked Altima on Cloverfield Blvd in Santa Monica with Michigan plates... They're already lurking around the Los Angeles area :)

      I agree on the color.
