Jim Press, the president of Chrysler, says every Chrysler will have a hybrid option. This is the broadest pro-hybrid sentiment yet uttered among the big domestic automakers. Press cited new government regulations as the reason behind the hybrid love but he gave no time table laying out when all of this might happen. Jim worked for Toyota, which has said almost the same thing in the past. Chrysler also joins GM in the show of hybrid love; GM plans to aggressively release hybrids in the near term. All the large automakers are not totally in love with hybrids however. VW has said if every car were a hybrid, automakers would go bankrupt but that isn't stopping the Germans from releasing a Golf diesel-hybrid concept in Geneva this week.
