The hybrids are coming

From the Desk of David Pogue: More on the Toyota Prius.

Money quote —

This, to me, is the most exciting part of hybrid drives: 90 percent fewer emissions, two to four times the mileage, at a price that can meet or beat gas-engine prices (or will soon).

Pogue lists the hybrids we can expect:

They include the Chevy Silverado, Honda Accord (2005 model year), Mercedes Vision GST (2006), Subaru B9 SC, Toyota Highlander/Lexus RX 400h, Toyota Tundra pickup (2006), and even a GM city bus, which will save 750,000 gallons of fuel a year in Seattle alone.
