Now a ’days it seems every auto manufacturer is coming out with a hybrid and while the push for efficiency is good for the environment it isn’t always good for performance/fun.
This year’s auto show brings a slew of new hybrid and electric vehicles with efficiency being top priority… With gas prices as high as they are I can’t blame the automotive industry but it is great to see that some manufacturers are still making vehicles for the enthusiasts.
