5. 2008 Chevy Silverado would be giving 35% boost to mileage.
6. 2004 Honda Accord Hybrid likely to be realeased in december would give V6 performance.
7. Lexus RX 400h SUV would follow in early 2005 and would have double mileage as compared to RX 300.

Why are you trying to make cars that consume less instead of making cars that don't need oil? Battery operated, wind up, wind generated energy, are we really to a point where there are no other solutions? Or does the economy need the oil industry so bad it isn't willing to search for new options, use your imagination.

Lets first make a begining. If we go for a alternative fuel car, it will have low performance in the begining. Today the greatest hurdle for the high sales of hybrid cars is power. So, if hybrid cars are a commercial success then only we can think of any research that will go into development of other types alternative fuel cars. It really needs all round effort from govt. companies, peaple .... to start the process of change and make this world a better place to live with less pollution.....

I see what you say, and I am glad that we are trying to do something. When I think about it though sometimes it bothers me that the government comes up with high tech equipment to protect our country and doesn't do anything about this. Nothing wrong with protection but couldn't they do both? Sorry about posting a comment that has nothing to do with this sight. I won't do it again, I just wanted to say something.

Does anybody know if any car manufacturers plan to develop a hybrid mini-van? In the near future I will need a car that is larger (i.e., carries more passengers) than a 5 passenger sedan, yet my options are restricted to sedans and 5 passenger SUV hybrids. This is asinine.

Actually yes I have heard of something like that but I have been to so many sites like that that I wouldn't be able to tell you where exactly. Sorry. :)

Hey everyone! Have you heard about how the nuclear power companies are really supporting hydrogen fuel cell cars? The want to use Nuclear power! Its a possibility but if something happens to even one of the plants thousands of people and animals could die any children after them would be mutated. What do you think?

I think if it true, we would experience all the science fiction movies. I think we have enough nuclear things affecting our lives in direct or indirect ways. We should avoid use of something like this.

I'm starting my research to buy a new car. I am very interested in doing the right thing environmentally and want to buy a hybrid. But, since I live on a steep hill in New England, what I really want is an all-wheel drive vehicle - and NOT a huge SUV. Something no larger than a Honda CR-V or Subaru Forester would be ok. I also have always driven a 5-speed. So, ideally I would like a car-based SUV manual transmission hybrid. I can wait a season or even two if there's something in the pipeline. Are you aware of anything approaching this or am I just dreaming? Thanks.

I presently drive a Subaru but am disappointed in the gas mileage. Living in Montana and driving moutainous dirt roads, I enjoy the all-wheel drive. Is Subaru or any other car manufacturer planning to develop a hybrid. The Ford SUV hybrid only gets 31 mpg on hwy. That's not enough for me. Any suggestions??

2005 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Category Hybrid Vehicles

Engine 3.3-liter V6/Electric Motor - Gas-Electric Hybrid

More photos
The new Highlander Hybrid SUV can travel more than 600 miles on a single tank of gas and has better fuel economy than a compact sedan’s average of 27.6 miles a gallon, said Jim Press, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc.
The new SUV, which looks on the outside like the current gasoline-powered Highlander, also will be able to go from California to Florida making fewer smog-producing emissions than what comes from “a can of air freshener,” he said.

The vehicle uses virtually the same powerplant that’s in the upcoming Lexus RX 330 Hybrid, which will be on the market by the end of this year. Specifically, the Highlander Hybrid will have an electric motor mated to a 3.3-liter V6, officials said.

It’s expected to be the first seven-passenger SUV with a gas-electric powertrain offered for sale in the United States. Front-drive models of the Highlander Hybrid will be standard. Four-wheel-drive Highlander Hybrids will be equipped with front and rear electric motors that will be capable of providing instantaneous acceleration. Officials would not say how many Highlander Hybrids they expect to sell.
