Hybrids' Future Likely to Lie in Trucks and SUVs
CHICAGO Instead of steering Americans toward smaller, fuel-sipping cars such as the Toyota Prius, hybrid technology is more likely to encourage them to stick with what they love most: trucks.
The three current gasoline-electric hybrids in the United States are cars: the compact Prius and Honda Civic Hybrid; and the Honda Insight, a smaller two-seater.
A wave of SUVs and pickups with hybrid power are coming in the next few years, some of which will provide only nominal fuel-economy improvements.
