One of the best parts about being a member of the Autoblog team, besides all the chicks and autograph requests, is driving some of the best vehicles in the world and writing about it here. When it comes to hybrids, though, we tend to leave the heavy lifting to our brethren over at AutoblogGreen, and our eco-conscious friends never let us down. Gang green got their hands on a 2008 Chevy Tahoe Two-Mode Hybrid, and they knocked the review right out of the park. Hit the link below to see how a Tahoe with two electric motors and a 300-volt battery pack fared, i.e. what kind of mileage it achieved.

      Why must they slap that hideous HYBRID tag across the bottom of the doors!?!?!?!?!?!

        So everyone else driving next to you on the highway knows how "green" you are. Either that, or to try and keep ELF terrorists from torching them on the dealer lots.

      i have been very impressed with the 2 mode design, and it seems it would be possible to add to many other rwd vehicles.

      now we need a 2mode plug-in diesel awd hybrid.

      How can you say GM doesn't want ot compete against Toyota or Honda? The Malibu took some nice awards and they even compare it to the Honda Accord in their commercials. Saturn dealers even had Honda's on their lot for people to compare against the Aura. Sounds like they are scared to me.

      That's cool and all but GM doesn't even have a viable hybrid sedan. My guess is that they don't because then they would be competing directly with Honda and Toyota, something they want to avoid at all costs. It's much easier to simply attack segments of the market where their Japanese rivals don't aggresively compete.

        Basing on your weird logic why is GM competing in the family sedan market? I am pretty sure (somebody back me up here please) that Honda and Toyota compete in that segment, yet GM is still in that segment.

        OK, I'll go slow so try to stay with me here. There's compete and then there's "compete". The Cobalt competes in the small car segment but it's not competitive. It's a subtle difference but...oh, nevermind.
