Report: Nissan developing a hybrid version of the Z?
That's about it for the accurate parts of the report. The rear-wheel-drive hybrid system from the Infiniti should fit into the similarly configured Z, but it doesn't make a lot of sense. It also seems unlikely that Nissan would bother to use hybrid technology from its new relationship with Daimler. The Daimler-Renault-Nissan partnership mainly covers small cars, electrics and diesels.
Using a Daimler diesel engine in the Z also seems like a long-shot given the character of the sports car. Frankly, we think the most likely scenario for the light-weight Z is a simple start-stop system with a downsized and turbo-direct-injection engine.
