Thanks to some innovative new features, the Nissan Rogue Hybrid was recently named a finalist for Green Car Journal’s “2017 Green SUV of the Year”. Although the winner won’t be announced for a little while, it’s still impressive to know that the first-ever hybrid Rogue is being recognized for its intelligent and eco-friendly design.
The new Nissan Rogue Hybrid comes with intelligent features like a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with a one-motor, two-clutch powertrain. The hybrid system gets up to 176 horsepower total, and it has an impressive 35 highway mpg, according to Nissan. The Rogue also has an Intelligent Regenerative Braking system to recharge the battery as you decelerate and an Idle Start/Stop system to save energy.
“There are so many enhancements to Rogue for 2017, with every one of them designed to enhance its appeal with the fastest growing segment of buyers in the industry,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “The crowning achievement is the addition of the new Rogue Hybrid, which increases fuel efficiency without compromising passenger roominess or cargo utility.”
The 2017 Rogue also has a bold new exterior, advanced safety features, and a truly comfortable ride. The new hybrid powertrain option promises to lower the cost of fuel while also cutting back on emissions, an important step toward the future of mobility.
