Nissan announced pricing for the new 2008 Altima Hybrid yesterday. We recently reviewed the 2007 model, and if you liked what you read there, the updated version will set you back at least $25,070 (MSRP). Well, don't forget the IRS tax credit of $2,350 and whatever you can finagle from the dealer (invoice price is $23,498).

The 2008 model gets 35 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, same as the 2007 model. One feature you might not know about is that the Altima Hybrid has a "specific electrically powered air conditioning system that continues to provide cooling when the gasoline engine is stopped," sez Nissan.

The 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid is currently available at Nissan retailers in the eight states that use California's emissions regulations: California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

      I just wrote a blog about how I really liked the new Altima couple, and how it got decent mileage and offered reasonably priced (and wear-rated) smaller 16" tires. I really wish I could get this car in a high-efficiency hybrid, but doesn't seem like that's going to happen any time soon -- I want a Coupe, and I am in Ohio, so neither option fulfilled.

      If you want to see more of what I thought about the coupe, I put it on blogger here:

      I'm in San Francisco with a rental hybrid Alitma from Avis. I'd been kicking the idea of seeing what I could get in trade on my '04 Honda Civic Hybrid on an '08 Altima Hybrid, but between the mileage and the size, I just can't bring myself to do it. If they offered the Coupe in a Hybrid version, I think I might come around on it. But right now, I'm waiting for the next gen Prius.

      Sebastian: Excellent post. Now, if only they would put a similar system in the Versa. Why? because one needs a short overall length to find parking spots in urban areas.
