Ford Escape Hybrid in NYC

Soon the streets of NYC will be filled not only with brightly colored Crown Vics carrying people to their destinations. Ford has announced that its Escape Hybrid will join the Vic in taxi lines all over the five burroughs of NYC thanks to support from the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission and the Coalition for Smart Transportation. Before the Escape Hybrid went on sale Ford pulled a stunt in which it drove one around Manhattan for 36 hours traveling 575 miles on a single tank of gas. If there's any place on this third rock from the sun that can showcase the benefits of hybrid technology better than NYC, we'd like to know. Who knows, maybe fares will fall with the money saved on gas.
