Hybrids were considered, but Nissan says consumers don't want them.

Despite the growing push for emissions-reducing electrical assistance in new vehicles, Nissan will steer clear for the new 400Z.

The leader of Nissan’s GT-R and Nismo products, Hiroshi Tamura, revealed to Australian media that while alternative options were considered, Nissan development choice was “driven by customer voice”.

That means, for the time being at least, no hybrid or electric version of the 400Z will enter production, despite Nissan’s greater push towards electrification with vehicles like the Leaf and coming Ariya SUV – both pure EVs.

“If customer’s strongly suggest electrification, we’d have to do that,” Tamura said. “Every solution must be considered.”

Nissan has yet to reveal the details of the Z Proto’s powertrain, and the relationship it will have on the next Z-car, likely to wear the 400Z name.
