Want a recap on hybrids?

Then you'll want to read this story on hybrids from SA. It recaps the SUVs that are available today and points out all the versions that are coming out soon.

G. Chambers Williams III also points out where the production of hybrids stands today. Despite high demand, the automakers are not making enough vehicles and the reasons for that shortage are many fold.

First, is the lack of nickel-metal-hydride battery packs available. Production of the batteries is picking up, but is still well short of where the automakers would like it to be.

Second is the issue of profit. The hybrids have been expensive to research and build, and as of now, the automakers are not making much (if any) return on their investment. With the introduction of the luxury SUV from Lexus and by making the hybrid available with the more expensive options (leather seating, high tech navigation), they are looking to increase their profits on consumers who want to make a statement about how they feel about the environment.
