General Motors only makes hybrid cars for public image.

This article comes from a company that makes the biggest waste of resources on the planet, a commercial, non military, Hummer. A vehicle so grossly overdeveloped that its almost nonsensical in an urban environment and strictly the preserve of military wannabes, cammo dudes, and guys with small penises as a compensation technique.

Who are they to talk about "sensible" in vehicles?

New technology always has a lead in time. But the sadness here is that GM doesn't have a heart for it, just for the public relations benefits they gain.

... Quote:
General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said in an interview this week that GM doubts the benefits of hybrids, but must build them to improve its public image.

"Hybrids are technologically of doubtful benefit, and expensive, but necessary from a political and public relations point of view," Lutz told Just-Auto. "Toyota has said, economically, hybrids make no sense. The reduction in fuel [consumption] does not pay for the technological content and cost of the vehicle so therefore economically it remains fairly nonsensical, so that's the left-brain analytical argument."


"The right brain is it's the popular thing to do, many people believe that if we all drove hybrids the world would suddenly get cooler again and then it's the patriotic thing to do because if you drive a hybrid you will no longer be funding the Arab terrorists, and so forth."
