Ford Hybrids

Ford hybrids really mean one thing--the Escape. The Ford Escape Hybrid, launched in 2004, is a gas-electric hybrid powered version of the Ford Escape SUV developed by the Ford Motor Company. Built in Kansas City, Missouri, it was the first hybrid SUV to hit the market. A similar vehicle, the Mercury Mariner Hybrid is sold by Ford's Mercury marque.

The Escape hybrid is a "full" hybrid electric system, meaning the system can switch automatically between pure electric power, pure gasoline engine power, or a combination of electric battery and gasoline engine operating together, for maximum performance and efficiency at all speeds and loads. When braking or decelerating, the Escape's hybrid system uses regenerative braking, where the electric drive motor becomes a generator, converting the vehicle's momentum back to electricity for storage in the batteries. With 155 hp (116 kW), the Hybrid Escape has nearly the same acceleration performance as the conventional 200 hp (150 kW) V6 Escape.

Chevy Hybrids

With Malibu Hybrid, fuel efficiency is not only the smart choice but a stylish one too. With its patented GM Hybrid Propulsion Electric System and a surprisingly low MSRP, the Malibu Hybrid (very limited availability) is the most affordable midsize hybrid in America. So don't just consider the cost of getting one, consider the cost of not getting one.

The Chevy Tahoe is already available with better fuel economy than any of its competitors. Even more impressive is Tahoe Hybrid, America's first full-size hybrid SUV. Featuring GM's exclusive two-mode hybrid technology, Tahoe Hybrid offers the power and capability you expect from a full-size SUV while offering fuel economy you never imagined. While driving in the city, Tahoe Hybrid 2WD offers the same fuel efficiency as a standard four-cylinder Toyota Camry. The Green Car Journal was so impressed they named it their 2008 Green Car of the Year.
