New hybrid cars driving us wild

Are the hybrids really taking off?
Maroone said hybrids have the potential to account for a bigger share of auto sales.

''A lot depends on the reliability and durability of hybrid engines and whether they can continue to drive the performance characteristics . . . that make the performance comparable to the combustion engine in terms of torque and horsepower,'' Maroone said.

Southeast Toyota's Reilly added it's only a matter of time before Toyota makes a hybrid version of all of its vehicles.

''I think it's not too far off when hybrid power train is just another option, like a four cylinder or six cylinder, or a two-wheel drive or a four-wheel drive,'' he said."
Not too far off?
