Sure, it's not a car or truck, per se, but it's a hybrid with lots of horsepower, which is why it made Autoblog today. That, and what better way to get through your winter (should you actually have snow) than with a 15 hp, 438cc iGX440 Honda motor running the blades on this thing? The motor also charges two 24 V battery packs, which in turn power two independent electric motors that run the crawlers. The HSM1590i debuts mid-December in Japan — hopefully it will get over to the states in time for the snow that pummels much of the U.S. throughout February and March.

Thanks to Michael from Treehugger for the tip.
