Nissan Licenses Technology From Toyota

According to MotorTrend, hybrid technology for the 2007 Nissan Altima will be licensed from industrial nemesis, Toyota. That means the Altima, like the Prius, will be both a series and a parallel configuration, using Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive technology. That's great news for Toyota, because they'll recoup some of the research and development costs of their pioneering technology. But it's also great news for Nissan, as they'll be using a proven system.
