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.
