  1. Looks like someone is going to cash in on going green in the auto industry. That someone will be all foreign owned companies, since our American companies cannot get their act together without an act (bailout) of Congress......

  2. It's unfortunate that General Motors dropped the ball with the EV1 back in the 90's. If they had ran with the technology since then, we would have affordable electrics and hybrids on the market now. These things won't be in demand until the average Joe can afford one. Some ICE vehicles are giving close to the same mileage as hybrids without the extra cost.

  3. I have been dreaming of getting either a hybrid or an all electric for some time. I just can't justify it when the little Mazda gets 35mpg, and I would likely only gain 5-10 mpg equivalent. Not to mention the Mazda is paid for. :)
