Nissan has reportedly decided to kill the hybrid versions of the Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 SUVs. The 2016 Pathfinder and QX60 will only be available in the regular gasoline-powered versions.
The news isn’t too shocking, since the front-wheel-drive hybrid versions only returned a 3-mpg improvement over the non-hybrid versions. The all-wheel-drive versions only had a 4-mph improvement. Both versions were powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder and an electric motor.

There’s still a chance of a Rogue hybrid down the line and there may also be a better hybrid system in the works, since Nissan is working on better battery technology. The next Leaf could have a driving range around 250 miles, which is much longer than today’s Leaf.
