“The Resonance is the latest in a series of envelope-pushing crossover designs from Nissan, fusing bold, breakthrough styling with hybrid-electric powertrain technology.”

In terms of its hybrid powertrain, there is a possibility that this car is equipped with Nissan’s new supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine mated to a compact CVT package that incorporates a single motor and two clutches plus a lithium-ion battery.
