DaimlerChrysler will have a hybrid option on all cars?

According to Motor Authority » All DaimlerChrysler cars will come with hybrid option, which is a pretty tall order. Ford once made the same promise, but backed off on it. Toyota looks like they are going about making this happen, although they are doing it with full hybrid technology. I wonder which way DCX will go?

DaimlerChrysler is looking to create the mild hybrid option on all cars. Mild hybrids have basic start-stop, regenerative breaking and their electric motors can assist the gas engine, but cannot power the car by itself. This gives the car higher fuel economy at less cost.

GM has mild hybrid technology in the Saturn Vue Green Line, but is switching to the two-mode hybrid system next year. BMW and DaimlerChrysler co-operated in developing the dual-mode system, and will have their own full hybrids on the road in the next couple of years.

There doesn't seem to be any timeline attached to the hybrid option on all DCX cars.
