Subaru has made quite a name for itself as automaker that caters to the outdoorsy, green-leaning set. Now it's stepping up to the plate for those customers – some might say "finally" stepping up – with its first-ever hybrid vehicle.
Judging by the spy shots we saw last week for the 2014 Buick LaCrosse and 2014 Buick Regal, we knew it wouldn't be much longer until we saw both sedans receive a grand debut. Today, Buick confirmed to Autoblog both cars will be introduced at the New York Auto Show next month, but no further information has yet been released about either model.

Every year about 1 million people attend the NY Auto Show and one of the reasons is that the show often features the latest in environmentally friendly cars and trucks. One of the strongest showings in the green-but-you'd-never-know-it category is Volkswagen. VW is ushering in a new era of cars that consume less, without relying on complex hybrid drivetrains or green-washing their NYIAS booth. True, the Bulli concept is all-electric, but the real world, buy-one-tomorrow VW's are not electric or
var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/apple/Hyundai_to_use_iPad_as_owner_s_manual_for_new_luxury_sedan'; The big surprise during the Hyundai Equus reveal today at today's New York Auto Show was the automaker's announcement that it would supply each new Equus owner with a "multimedia tablet" to replace the owner's manual.

The motor generates 30 kilowatts (40.2 horsepower) and 151 pound-feet of torque and handles drive and regenerative braking duties. That's well short of the 106 hp of the Ford Fusion motor and the 141 hp of the Toyota Camry motor. Nevertheless, Hyundai claims the Sonata can operate in EV mode at up to 62 mph. We'd guess that actually means the Sonata can shut down the engine and cruise on electricity at high speeds but can't actually accelerate to that speed on battery power, but we're looking in
