Although nothing official has been announced regarding this new model, Nissan has already demonstrated that it’s eager to utilize powerful, electrified powertrains. For example, the all-new Infiniti M Hybrid boasts a 3.5-liter V6 engine with an electric motor that produces 360 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Those power figures would also be fitting in a midpriced sports car like the Z.
Other potential powertrain options include diesels. Nissan’s partnership with Daimler may give the Japanese automaker access to a range of new engines, including Mercedes-Benz’s BlueTEC diesels.
While there’s still some time before any official details emerge, it is expected that the next Z will have a slightly higher price tag, due to the range of powertrain options and due to the current value of the yen.
