Choosing technology for cars


Hybrid cars

EV (Electric Vehicles)
Hybrids (Gas/Electric Hybrids)



The imports were first to market with gas/electric hybrid cars, such as the Toyota Prius. Honda now has a hybrid Civic available. The Big Three will counter in 2006 with more hybrid options including hybrid SUVs (which kind of seems like an oxymoron to us).


Recommendation: a good idea if you are buying new (but don't even think about getting something that takes truck tires).
