Nissan Tino

The Nissan Tino Hybrid crossover vehicle was released in 2000 in Japan and sold over the Internet to 100 or so lucky customers (orders were filled within a month after the announcement).

The Tino Hybrid uses a Hitachi three-phase ac synchronous electric motor (23 hp) and a conventional 4-cylinder 1.8L QG18DE DOHC, 16-valve inline internal combustion engine (100 hp) for reduced emissions and greater fuel efficiency.

The Nissan Tino Hybrid crossover (cross between car and minivan) uses the NEO hybrid system and a steel-belt-and-pulley continuously variable transmission (CVT) to achieve 50-percent greater fuel efficiency and 50-percent less emissions than the standard gasoline-only Tino automobile. On deceleration, the Tino Hybrid uses its regenerative braking system to recharge the electrical system.

The Tino Hybrid is a compact 5-seater that uses two inline lithium-ion battery packs, which are located mid-car underneath a raised rear floor. As a crossover vehicle, the Tino Hybrid is a parallel full hybrid type, employing two electric motors, with the main electric motor doing all the work at low speeds and being assisted by the gasoline engine as more power is needed.

The Tino Hybrid system is controlled by a main hybrid computer and five individual control units. These control units manage the battery, electric motor, engine, engine-propulsion-motor clutch, and CVT. On its chassis, the Tino Hybrid has electrically assisted rack and pinion steering, ultra-lightweight aluminum wheels and low rolling resistance tires.

The Tino Hybrid crossover vehicle has been a modest commercial experiment for Nissan. Nissan, however, has now turned their focus to using Toyota's technology, combining power and fuel efficiency, to bring a new Nissan Altima Hybrid to market in 2007.
