Honda's putting it out there that it's ready to share its proprietary hybrid and diesel technology with other automakers, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported President Takeo Fukui as saying. The effort is evidently part of Honda's effort to stay ahead in the alternative drivetrain game, an effort that nicely complements recent news that it will launch a small, Prius-fighting hybrid and clean diesel engines in 2009.

Nice of them to be so generous, you think?
