The truth in what form we will see the electrical component is still unknown. Nissan representatives continue to keep the information secret.

The new sports car Nissan 400Z can get a motor with an electric component. Such information was shared by one of the vice-presidents of Nissan, Ivan Espinoza. Since the information comes from one of the managers, it can be assumed that such a version is not only at the development stage, but already at the test stage.

Initially it was assumed that under the hood of the Nissan 400Z there will be a 3.0-liter engine with two turbines and a power of more than 400 hp. True, in which version we will see the electrical component is currently unclear. It is possible that Nissan will rely on a 48-volt starter generator. In this case, the Nissan 400Z will be able to have even more frisky dynamics when starting from a standstill.

Perhaps we will witness PHEV technology, where an electric motor will be located on the front axle, and a classic internal combustion engine will work at the rear.
Most likely, all the details should be expected before the official premiere. At the moment, the presentation date is unknown – most likely, the new Nissan 400Z will be shown at the end of this year or early next year.

Earlier it became known that Nissan could cut production by almost a third. This measure is part of a new strategy for the brand to get out of the crisis due to the coronavirus epidemic. Nissan dealers record significant sales declines following the pandemic.
