The New Hybrids

It's not exactly new technology (the technology has been around for ages), but if Honda Malaysia can promote this, then, it's just a matter of time before the rest of the car makers globally do the same thing (give and take a year or two if not sooner).

What is most impressive is the 31 km per litre fuel consumption claim!

Whilst real life driving won't get this, apparently, you could get something like 15 km for every RM at current fuel prices. That's equivalent to 1,500 km for every RM$100!! For many, this is equivalent to at least 3 to 4 times improvement.

The technological improvement is simply fantastic!

Now, just imagine if just 10% of American drivers switch to Hybrid cars over the next few years. The fuel consumption impact globally could drop in a very significant amount.

The question - as always - is will the big oil cartels allow this? Or will we see this as one-off promotion which will die down over time as fuel prices stay low?

Looks like we do have the technology to defer "peak oil" for a few more decades yet.

Dear okating,

I'm not sure if you are aware, but since you surfaced a few months ago, you have been sending me over 30+ comments like this over which isn't related to the topic of my article.

I'm not sure if you are aware that this isn't a normal behaviour.

May I ask why - if you are not Samgoss - you would continue to behave in such a manner?

I ask this in a sincere manner.
