The Hybrid is So Yesterday

The auto industry is going green:

Just as Toyota's hybrid Prius went from being a curiosity into a best-seller, so air cars may follow suit. Given the pace at which manufacturers are developing greener vehicles, that day might come sooner than anyone thinks.

To be clear, I don't know if any of the specific technologies mentioned in the article will pan out. But the important thing is that the auto industry recognizes that this is the future. Increasingly, green means profits. It won't be long, in my opinion, before the hybrid is the technology we are trying to phase out in favor of better, cleaner, and cheaper technologies.
