"Toyota has announced that all their vehicles will be gas-electric hybrids by 2012. The plan is to eliminate the current $3,000 per vehicle additional cost for hybrid engines through mass production."

Well to be honest, its about time they made cars that saved fuel.
I only wish out of the 25 years I have been driving back and forth to work, I could have been driving an electric car.

Only thing I have against them, is size. If everyone drove the same size autos, then odds would be better you would live through a crash.

But these big SUVs against a escort, POOF! :o

Well, I'll be...

That's cool news. Toyota has got balls to lead in that area and take some initiative to improve our environment and save our resources. I give them a big round of applause... (clap, clap, clap) That's means I can probably get a hybrid Lexus, too... Yeah baby!!!

:D 8)
