Hummers and Hybrids

by William Yeatman on September 26, 2007

The Hummer is the bane of the greens’ existence. It is big and loud, so it makes an easy target for those so keen on reducing greenhouse gas emissions that they would, if they had their way, force all Americans to drive Ford Fiestas.


So it should surprise the enviros that the new H3 gets basically the same gas mileage as….a hybrid. That’s right. The H3 gets 20 mpg, just 2 mpg less than the new Lexus Luxury LS Hybrid 08 sedan, whose engineers used hybrid technology not to make the car more fuel efficient, but bigger and louder.
