Re: GM to build and sell hybrid cars in Canada ... cheaper!

Personally, I wish Ford would get going and do something other than styling which is their mainstay.
Imagine a Ford Mustang with some hybrid technology comparable to the Toyota
Volta (hybrid)! That would be an American car with power. I might even becomes a Ford owner again - if they produce a warranty that beats anything out there (6 year, 120K miles, no questions asked, service free and fast). Ford needs to stand behind their product, and not do something so outlandish as when they offered their "Pay for it once to be fixed and never again" warranty of the late 80's which disappeared of the screen when you owned one back then. They dropped the warranty ball on that one and it was even in the owner's manual (a selling point that was done away with during ownership).
GM has been bragging about hybrids too long while dragging their feet. They need to get going and produce something which has staying power as does Ford. Toyota talks about it, and then it appears shortly after. Honda needs some styling though (Insight is, seriously, too ugly a car to be seen in).
All the EPA sticker hybrid mpg ratings have been dismal to date - but they've been that way on the dinosaur gas engine models as well.
