GM's New Hybrid Plan to Focus on Big Cars
Tom Stephens, GM's group vice president for powertrains, said the company has opted to use its most fuel-efficient hybrid systems on high-volume vehicles that consume the most fuel - the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon SUVs and Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.
The first of the automaker's advanced hybrids - those that can achieve a fuel-economy improvement of up to 35 percent, compared to one-third that amount with mild systems - is not scheduled to reach showrooms until 2007.

Don't you think that this has something to do with the CAFE standards for light-trucks being revised upwards starting 2007?
