Hybrids will be Core

According to Toyota's managing officer, Yasuhiko Ichihashi, hybrid cars will be a core segment of the future vehicle market. He was the keynote speaker at the 2007 SAE World Congress.

Given the recent legislation in Europe and in the US, hybrid technology is growing swiftly to meet that future demand. Continental, which offers full and mild hybrids, would need to double the size of its hybrid engineering team to meet current demand for its fuel-saving solutions. Its core hybrid engineering team consists of 160 engineers already. So, they've been turning away some recent proposals.

GM has also put out the word they are hiring engineers who want to work on hybrid engines. That and the recent news by Nissan saying they want to build lithium-ion batteries, which will be used in the next generation of hybrid cars, shows that future where hybrids will be core is taking shape right now.
