Problem with the toyota / Nissan hybrid cars is there Hybrid batteries die after around 100000-150000 Km's. And the cost of the battery and installation charges are more than 200000, so I would not suggest the Hybrid car of Nissan / toyota.

I am not sure the how the mentioned mileage is calculated. Because if its hybrid (automatic), I was expecting mileage in upper 30's 😏

PS: This is my own experience.

The number of kms you are talking in the rage of 100000s. That kind of drive will screw a lot of things. Plus I don't expect a lot of people holding on to that kind of usage. And I suppose after a 100000 kms, we need to dissemble the engine for power service, so that itself screws the car.
