I know the people who think Paris is a genius are few and far between, but statements like this certainly don't help people who work in the green car field. First, it's misinformation, so there might be a segment of the population out there that now thinks that a Hummer hybrid actually exists. Second, letting the word hybrid stand in for environmentally sound is bad policy. In some cases (Insight, Prius), the hybrid motor is, first and foremost, meant to increase MPG. In other cases (the new Porsche hybrids and the Lexus hybrids, for example), the electric addition just gives a little more power, a slight increase in MPG, and a whole lot of greenwashing. Even if a Hummer hybrid were to exist, it wouldn't be the best choice for drivers who care.
