Recently, I told you the new KITT, in the upcoming Knight Rider TV movie, would have a solar powered hybrid engine. NBC is showing a TV commercial highlighting this green feature. You can watch video of the TV commercial below the fold. The ad also mentions that the new KITT has 550 horsepower and race-tuned suspension standard.

As AutoblogGreen reader CARazed reminds us, the first KITT was actually very green too. According to Wikipedia, the first KITT used liquid hydrogen in a turbine engine and got 100 MPG. The new KITT is based on Ford's Mustang Shelby Cobra, which is not a hybrid. In reality, Ford's only hybrid is the Escape SUV. If you want a green, all-electric Mustang, check this out.

Stay tuned for a review of the movie after it airs February 17th.
