Japan's Nikkan Kogyo is reporting Nissan will unveil a redesigned Altima sometime next year.

Details are scarce, but the newspaper says the model will be available as a hybrid that features a four-cylinder engine, a CVT transmission and an electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery.

As we have previously reported, Nissan recently axed the current Altima hybrid because it used Toyota technology and the new model is slated to adopt a hybrid system based on the one used in the Infiniti M35h.
