Since starting with Autoblog a few months ago I've discovered voices in the automotive industry I was previously ignorant of. I followed many trends and read all the magazines etc. but I had never followed Jerry Flint's column in Forbes until researching for Autoblog. Today Mr. Flint takes on GM and Chrysler's misguided alternative fuel policies. GM is looking to hydrogen while Chrysler and its German masters simply don't believe in it at all, preferring good old diesel power. Flint makes many good points especially about GM's so-called hybrid trucks to be introduced next year. I'm not quite sure why GM or Dodge wouldn't put huge electric motors in their trucks and SUVs as part of a hybrid system that would double as a generator when the car is parked. That might make the extra price worth it to those that actually use the large haulers for real heavy-duty work.
