Next-generation Nissan 370Z will go hybrid, receive a targa version

Article by Christian A., on August 8, 2014

Things are getting more and more interesting when talking about the Nissan 370Z successor. According to the latest reports, the new Nissan Z will get smaller but powerful models that will carry Mercedes-Benz technology as well as an impressive design.

If the current version was developed mainly for the United States and Japan, the successor will become a global sports car. As a result, the convertible version will receive a retractable hard-top, but a new model will also arrive with a targa top or a t-bar roof.

The decision to introduce a targa version is that is that Nissan wants to reach a wider section of potential customers.

Under the hood we will probably see a the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine but also a 3.0-liter direct-injection petrol engine supplied by Mercedes-Benz, delivering over 330 hp.

Apparently, both engines will get a hybrid unit, a parallel hybrid system where the electric motor is mounted between the engine and transmission. A Nismo version of the upcoming Z successor will also be offered by Nissan.
