Honda hybrid a no-brainer


Check out Gizmodo's review of the Honda Civic Hybrid. This is a no-brainer new car purchase, at 50 mpg with 140 horsepower, coming in at around $22,000 US ($25,000 CAN). Not to mention the huge savings in gas and tax exemption programs. No wonder Toyota and Honda are doing so well, while the Detroit automakers are still flailing their arms over Hummers and F150's.

For those out there who think going green means going backwards, please tell me where the hair shirt (or in this case seat-covers) is in the Honda hybrid?

Look Out Prius! Here Comes Formula One

It is obviously early stage, but Gizmodo is reporting that some top Formula One builders are teaming up to create what would no doubt be the fastest hybrid car on the planet. I was saving up for a Prius, but I think I might hold out for this one! Thanks to our friends at Thinkprogress for bringing this story to our attention. 

This latest development is in response to a June, 2006 demand by Formula One boss Max Moseley that racing engineers quit spending their time and expertise pushing out a few extra RPM's, and instead turn to making Formula One greener and meaner.
