Hybridology

Updates on the spread of hybrid auto tech.

Some news in the world of hybrid vehicles. New York City will be trying out hybrid garbage trucks. Makes sense as hybrids really save energy in frequent stop-start use. The truck will be, of course, hybrid diesel.

Stop-start, did I say? Well, another perfect app for hybrids: school buses. A Virginia company's working on that.

Not to be outdone by Ford, Toyota, GM, Honda and the other big auto makers, a Malaysian compnay says it'll be selling a hybrid soon.
