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.
